Sacred Beauty Police – Ladies in Venice

When an event is held in one of the fashion power house of the world, I expect every one to dress up for the occasion. Here is a pick of my favorite looks at the Venice International Film Festival. The trends were classic smokey eyes in shimmery earth tones, bronze, copper, pinks; perfect long voluminous lashes; just blushed contoured cheeks and nude, pink and red lips. If I had to choose a phrase for the trending makeup looks I would call it – sophisticated socialite. Even though most celebrities had their game right through out the festive, particularly impressive were  Vanessa Hudgens’ flawless just tanned face, Freida Pinto’s shimmery brown classic smokey eyes, Maika Monroe’s long separated lashes, Keira Knightley’s just pinch of blush cheeks and the tangy-red lips of Miranda Kerr.

The Perfect Pout – A Guide to Applying Red Lipstick

By Odun Ogunbiyi When it comes to make-up I can’t think of anything more glamorous, sophisticated and timeless than luscious sexy red lips. There really is a shade out there for everyone and the real way to find it is by trial and error.  You can either buy 100 lipsticks and glosses or get yourself to a makeup store and try them out until you find the shade that works for you and ask a professional to help. Red lipstick works equally well from day to night.  At the moment I’m really loving my Mac Ruby Woo (yes it’s Nigeria’s favourite Lipshade and I think it actually suits EVERY skin tone on the planet, even though Lola has tried to explain to me that it dosen’t! What does she know anyway..) and also my Mary Kay Red.
