LIFT: 2012 BET Awards

L.I.F.T = Look I’m Feeling Today!!

Hey Guys!!!

I had to drop off my thoughts about the 2012 BET Awards. Ironically, the same things I liked about the BET award show last year are the same things I enjoyed about the show this past Sunday. I loved “The Real Husbands of Hollywood” skit. I am so glad they are making it into a full fledged show. Sign me up…I know it will be hilarious. And, wow…the Whitney Houston tribute was soo touching.

Two years in a row, my favorite artists were the winners of the Best International Act (Africa) category. Congrats to Wizkid! Check out two of my favorite songs of the moment by Wizkid.

For the past few years, Monica’s style has been right up my alley. She looked amazing on the red carpet. That structured blazer and the sequined pants were everything! Sexy but classy all at the same time and of course her makeup and hair was on point as usual.

Where Music and Beauty Meet…

I love me some Brandy and Monica, so whenever they have a project together, I am more than happy to “hear” from them.  The image and the video below says it all. They both looked amazing and their makeup application was perfectly executed. Big ups to their Makeup Artists! They are not going anywhere, anytime soon. Keep it up girls!!!

My 2011 Grammy Review

Happy Valentine’s Day!!!!!! I wish you a great time loving yourself and your loved ones.

So on to the Grammys. The show was all kinds of boring, but looking at the positives, this is what I observed:

  • The tribute to the Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin was nice.
  • Then, I was bored through most of the show, until Cee Lo, Gwyneth Paltrow and Muppets came on the stage. The performance was very colorful. His outfit was crazy, the muppets were so cute and Gwyneth looked great! I loved it.
  • I also enjoyed the short tribute to Dolly Parton (by Norah Jones, Keith Urban and John Mayer). They performed “Jolene” which is one of my favorite songs by Dolly. I love me some Dolly…she is as real as they come.
  • Talking about John Mayer, did he look like Johnny Depp last night, or was it just me?
  • Last but not least the performance with Rihanna and Drake was great. I love Reggae, so the “breakdown” in the performance was refreshing.  
On to the “Fashions”…My stand out person of the might was Monica. She looked elegant and very pulled together. As always, her makeup was on point!

My honorable mention is Eva Longoria. Something about her whole look really catered to me. Her makeup was clean and her hair nicely styled.

LIFT: Pre-Grammy Edition 2011

L.I.F.T = Look I’m Feeling Today!!

I’m getting ready to watch the Grammys, but I wanted to share these images I came across today (from the Pre-Grammy Gala and Salute to Industry Icons Honoring David Geffen). The Gala took place last night and Jennifer Hudson was on FIRE!!! She looks amazing in that dress. Her makeup is on point! I am feeling her whole look.

To create this look, I would use MAC Woodwinked eyeshadow on the lid and MAC Bronze eyeshadow in the crease, with a black liquid liner and false lashes. For the lips, I would use MAC Lady bug lipstick.
 

Jennifer Hudson...I love her dress.

I really think Miley Cyrus stood out as well. Her makeup was natural but very flattering.

I also loved seeing Brandy and Monica together. They both looked great! Remember the song “The Boy is Mine”?
