So in an earlier post, I mentioned how I have more than a few articles of clothing that still have tags on them; this Jibri dress just so happened to be one of them. I ordered this dress sometime last year; I fell in love when I saw it on Jibri's Etsy site and literally squealed when I opened the package. The quality is amazing and so is the workmanship. It's a total "Ivory" dress; it has all the details I absolutely love: exaggerated sweetheart neckline, pockets and an awesome print. Seriously, what else could I ask for???
Today was awesome! Thanks to my friend Monique aka L.O.L aka www.curvesandchaos.com, I was able to attend the Covergirl Queen Collection/BET Awards Show Red Carpet Makeup event. I had a wonderful time, met other bloggers and received a makeup lesson (along with a few tricks). The event was hosted by the beautiful Tika Sumpter who is as sweet as she is beautiful....so refreshing to meet a completely down to earth Hwood actress. The look we viewed being done is the the look Tika wore on the Red carpet. I will be honest: I am a total MAC girl; however this Queen collection is making me rethink my "MAC only" policy. As a wonderfully, delicious chocolate girl (BROWN GIRLS STAND UP!) makeup can be torture. It either doesn't blend, has a red undertone (side eye; my brown ladies know what certain brand I'm referring to) or is chalky. The makeup artist, Ashunta Sheriff, showed how she used bronzer and foundation to contour Tika's face and it blended so smooth and creamy; it was very pretty. Ok, on to the pics:
