Party Red Lip - Vanessa Williams/Wilhelmina Slater Inspired Look

Hi there lovelies,

Thank you so much for supporting my blog.  I do hope you like the look that I created.  I was inspired by the picture below of Vanessa Williams in her character as Wilhelmina Slater on Ugly Betty. 

I always find myself admiring Vanessa's make-up.  I may not have her striking blue eyes but I'm rather fond of my baby brown ones :-) 

I think Vanessa Williams is one of the lucky few that just gets more beautiful with each passing year. 

Here are some pics of the look that I created:
