Queen of the Night

One of my favorite beauty icons is Queen Latifah.  She carries herself very well and always looks glam when she is at industry events.  Her makeup is always flawless! She has come along way from her rapping days.  There was not too much about those looks that I admired.  I started to really like her style when she was on “Living Single,”  the precursor to “Sex and the City”. LOL I will say that when I look back on the show, I am not feeling some of her wardrobe.


I must confess that I have not used her CoverGirl line, but I hear good reviews.  One of Twitter peeps recommended one of her bronzers, CoverGirl Queen Collection Natural Hue Minerals Bronzer, Light Bronze Q100.  She loves it very much.


I love this smokey eye look on Queen Latifah.  I wanted to try it out!
