2011 Met Gala Favorite Faces (Makeup)

It’s not always about the gown. Hair and makeup are just as important. Some ladies get it and others don’t. There were a few that caught my eye last night on the red carpet. Here are some of my favorite faces from the red carpet of the 2011 Met Gala.

La La Vasaquez

I gasp every time I see LaLa’s face lately. Its always so beautiful. With soft colors on the lid and perfectly bronzed. Always using a white liner on the lower lash line to make her eyes pop and seem more open. Slightly smoky but never too dramatic.

Janelle Monae

I love Janelle Monae’s fresh face. A wonderful way to wear makeup and look fresh, yet look like you don’t have that much on.  With defined brows and the perfectly peachy cheek and a nude lip, this look is perfect for everyday, and still appropriate for a red carpet.


Sam Fine is the king of the smoky eye and perfects it so beautifully on Iman’s face. Perfectly bronzed and golden elsewhere, then the perfect smoky punch on the eye with a nude lip.

Are You Wasting Your Beauty?

A survey conducted by Cover Girl shows that women spend on average $69 each year on cosmetics products that they never use.

I went through my collection and looked at products that I purchased and have yet to use. And  I must say there are a number of things I don’t use. However, I have a 30/60/90 day rule where I get rid of tangibles in my life. I either give them away or donate. So I guess some of my friends will be pretty happy here soon…or maybe there will be a Twitter, Blog or Facebook giveaway. Stay tuned!

I challenge you to go through your own collection of makeup and beauty products. How many products have you purchased that you have never used? Do you plan to use them ever?
