Fellas, How's Your Suit Game??

This morning, I was listening to the Steve Harvey Morning Show (which is hilarious by the way) and he gave away 5 suits from his suit line to a lucky member! He then started talking to the winner about suits for men.  He stated that every man should at least have 5 suits; Black, Brown, Blue, Grey and Tan.  With these 5 suits you will have from 55-75 different combinations! Wow! 

We have all seen Steve Harvey in his suits on television and he is always SHARP! I visited his website to view the Steve Harvey Mens Collection and Mr. Steve Harvey has crazy SWAG!!! He has a complete collection of suits, ties, socks, wallets, cufflinks, jewelry and shoes. So fellas you have no excuse!!

Take a look at the set I put together to help you get an idea of a complete look from head to toe! 


Now this is a nice look!!! This is his Grey/Fuschia Window Pane Wool Suit.  I chose the fuschia socks with gray stripe, with silver cufflinks, with the camel color wallet and belt along with the cognac shoes and timepiece to help bring out the subtle fuschia in the suit. Check out the name of the shoe, "Hightower"! 

There you have it!  All of these pieces are from Steve Harvey's Collection and you can check it out here!  Mr. Harvey understands all of the components that completes a man in a suit and will have you look clean as a whistle!! Phreewwww!! (whistle sound) :) 

  Women love a man in a nice suit! (Hint, hint!). So check out The Steve Harvey Collection and step up your SWAG!

Christina Milian's Makeup: Yay or Nay?

Yesterday Christina Milian was out at the 7th Annual Music Saves Lives Event  in Hollywood.  Her dress was super cute and she's a beautiful lady!! But her makeup...idk...Check it out! 


My opinion is, it could've been blended out way more, and a darker color in her corner crease to create some sort of depth.  I'm all for bold makeup looks, I love bright colors on your eyes.  It just needs to be done right and blending is KEY!  It just looks like a very mediocre makeup job. Anyway, what do you think??

Product Review: MAC Hey Sailor Lipsticks!

 MAC Hey Sailor collection launches tomorrow!  Yay!! Although I didn't really need anything, I love the packaging of the collection and you can never have too many lipsticks :) 

 I only got 3 out of the 4 lipsticks from the collection. I got Red Racer, Sail La Vie, and Salute! Check out the pictures below of my lipstick reviews! 

Sail La Vie

Red Racer

Salute!
All 3 are satin texture, so they go on really smooth. Perfect colors to wear all year long! I hope this helps when you are deciding  to purchase the lipsticks from the collection on maccosmetics.com! But I approve of all 3 lipstick colors! I hope you like them too! 

Olivia's Makeup; Too Much or is Her Face Beat? What do you think?

Olivia is still on a mission to achieve her music dreams! She recently recorded a song called "Soldier Girl" feat. Mavado.  So kudos to her!! Keep chasing that dream girl!!

Anyway I came across this recent photo of her (via theybf.com). Of course the first thing I noticed (duh), was her makeup.  So as a makeup artist I can appreciate the look because it is very pretty, done very well and precise. She is definitely a beautiful lady!  Maybe she had a photoshoot and she needed a dramatic look where her highlighting and contouring needed to be on point, which it is for sure in this photo.    

But what do you all think? Too much makeup? Or would you say her face is beat?
