Senegalese Model Graces Vogue Netherlands Cover

Congratulations are in order for Kinee Diouf!  She is the first Black model to claim the cover of Vogue Nederland, coming in July.  This issue coincidentally or strategically debuts on the heels of their controversial May issue, which featured a Dutch model painted in blackface.  Some say it’s a subtle apology.  Possibly.  And given that most of Ms. Diouf’s pictures are from a distance instead of close-up, I may agree.  But controversy aside, she KILLED the shoot, done by esteemed photographer, Ishi.  The spread took place at  Paradis Plage Resort in Agadir, Morocco.  Vibrant scenery, prints and lipstick.  Caution: fierce flicks ahead!

Wildcard Wednesday: D.I.Y. Ombre Lipstick

Ombre Lips

One look at these and I had to try.  Shortly after seeing Madame Ombre, I was on my way to my makeup bag to create my own and so can you.  After much trial and error, I finally found a combo that was the simplest of them all.  Be bold – give it a go 😉

1. Begin with two contrasting lipstick colors.  I chose Magnified Violetta (fave) and Frosty Angel (collecting dust), both by MAC.

                    Ombre Violetta   Ombre Frost Angel

2. Apply the darker shade to your upper lip and the lighter to your bottom lip.

3. Use a blush or eyeshadow that balances both colors.  Dab it on the top half of your bottom lip.  I combined fuchsia and red.  Ombre blush

4. If a glossy finish is desired, add a top coat of clear lip gloss.

¡Voilà!
