Beauty Happy Hour: Take Your Makeup From Day To Happy Hour

Courtesy Of USA Network
I must admit that every Thursday, one of the reasons I look forward to watching the fashion-forward drama TV Show Suits, is so I can see what the sharp tongued ladies on the show will be wearing. My favorite character on the show is Afro-Latina actress Gina Torres, who plays the corporate “Head Woman In Charge” character, Jessica Pearson. Costume designer for the show Jolie Andretta mixes contemporary pieces from Victoria Beckham, Burberry, Dior and Prada while flirting with vintage pieces. What I obsess about the most is how the head makeup artist Anita Gibson selects how each character’s makeup looks effortless yet polished for the work place. 
Gina’s character is always flawless and sophisticated representing what a powerhouse woman should look like every day at work. Here is one of my favorite makeup looks that Gina has worn that I want to help you to achieve as a signature look at home before heading out to work. It’s a real simple look that you can get out the house within 15 mins and can take you from the office to Happy Hour.

My Pantone Radiant Orchid 2014 New Year’s Eve Makeup Look

My New Year’s Eve makeup look was inspired by Pantone Color Of The Year 2014; Radiant Orchid. Pinky Purple a great spring color of warmth that looks great on everyone. It’s such a flirty color that I feel so feminine wearing it. The plus is that Radiant Orchid makes you look youthful and it brighten the face. As always I’m always trying to find makeup products on a budget that won’t break your private/emergency stash. We all want to look glamxurious but not everybody can keep up with the looks we see on the runway.  
Here are makeup items I used to get my 2014 Radiant Orchid look.

Start with a damp Beauty Blender
Apply Stila Stay All Day HD Beauty Balm with my Beauty blender first
With my damp Beauty Blender I then apply L’OREAL Paris Revitalift Miracle Blur second
Before I do my face I like to do my eye makeup. I used Nicka K NY Absolute Perfect Eighteen Colors. The ones with the yellow dots are the 3 colors I used.
I then lined my eyes with Nicka K NY Liquid Liner. I don’t normally rock a cat look, it’s to trendy for me but this liner
gives a great cat eye

I’m enjoying L’OREAL Paris new Voluminous Butterfly Mascara

Finish with my eyes I damp my Beauty Blender again then I apply L’OREAL Paris Magic Lumi on my face

I then apply Stila Stay All Day HD Foundation & Concealer with my Beauty Blender.
I use # 10 to highlight & #13 all over
I don’t leave home without my L’OREAL Paris True Match Powder. I use a total of 3 colors to create my custom look.
*W8 all over *C8 to contour & *N5 to highlight

Set my foundation with Black Opal Invisible Oil Blocking Powder
My signature blush is Stila Custom Color Blush in Pink
For a little warmth to the skin this winter I like Nicka K NY Mineral Sheer & Glow Bronzer in Chocolate. I also like Carat/24K but I’m out of that one, lol!!!
I finished my Pantone Radiant Orchid makeup look by using Nicka K NY Lip Color in 
Heading out the door, car just arrived to take me to my fav HAMPTONS family to get them makeup ready for their annual New Year’s bash..HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
