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.

Thanks for sharing the products. It would also be good to know how you use the Miracle Blur.

Thanks!

Hi Tammie,

Thanks for leaving a comment! I will start putting more tips into my makeup post. I used a damp beauty blender and I applied the Miracle Blur all over the face to achieve that flawless finish. It's the first item I prep the face with. Follow by the BB Cream. I do eye makeup first before doing the foundation.
