Smoky Eyes, Bright Lips

Posted by Kay:

When Thandie posted this cute #SayHerName-selfie on the way to the Essence ‘Black Women in Hollywood’ luncheon last week, I emailed her straight away and said what make-up were you wearing, we gotta tell our readers!

Smoky eyes are giving us life when worn with a bright, almost summer ‘pop’ of colour.Thandie Beauty Shot #sayhername

I’ve been doing this a lot with my actresses in the last year, there’s just something about the way a bright watermelon, coral or pink can ‘uplift’ the smoulder. You can’t beat a smoky eye, it’s always been cool, it always will be-but sometimes, especially when you’re wearing black, it can all be a bit gloomy.

So in the same way that us ladies might pop in that unexpected colour with a fluoro handbag or shoes to a LBD or jeans n’ sweatshirt, why not see your lipstick as that contrasting accessory-for your face?

Here, Thandie is wearing one of her go-to favourite eye-poppin’ lip colours, Lady Danger by Mac.


We found another really unexpected shade on a thandiekay shoot we did before Thandie went back to LA but we’re keeping it secret…

More beauty news on that soon….keep visiting us! Love Thandie & Kay X
