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.

I’ve been obsessing with the vampy lip once again and after seeing newcomer New Zealand singer and songwriter LORDE rocking her royal lips I knew I had to recycle my favorite L’OREAL Paris HIP lip gloss. A lot of women are afraid of this strong dark almost black lip color. If worn correctly with minimum makeup but with illuminating skin it’s a brilliant color on everyone. Especially if your already a fan of chocolate, wine and deep burgundy lipsticks.
I enjoy this color so much that I am always ready to use on models at photshoots. On set I remember when I pulled out this color a few people went silent but once on the model the vampy lip gave the entire look life. So what do I use to get this look, because I’m sure you want to know. I used L’OREAL Paris HIP Lipgloss in Ingenue #678 it’s my favorite. It’s one of their older colors but if you can find it, grab about 2 or 3, cuz this color will not disappoint.
My favorite all time lipgloss to achieveing that dark vampy lip is L’OREAL Paris HIP Lipgloss in #678
