Obviously. Ms. Spalding’s hair is the best feature of this look. GET INTO IT!

There are going to be FAB Girls with natural hair going to prom, and this look is the bee’s knees. I mean, this is bohemian formality at its finest. And yet, she looks as stunning and beautiful as the other Oscar attendees, with a fraction of the fuss.

Her hair, her dress, her cuff…..all perfect for prom. Continue for some similar fabulosity.

Prom Inspiration: Keri Hilson

18 Apr

Keri Hilson wore this turquoise dress with pretty accents to the 2011 Grammys, and it was one of my favorite looks on her to date. Because the dress makes its own statement, few accessories are needed.

Her makeup is very pretty, with a smoky eye and natural lip, and she’s paired the dress with a pair of strappy sandals and sparkly clutch. As always, we’ve scoured the web for frocks inspired by Miss Keri.

Guest Beauty Post: Makeup for Glasses

6 Apr

My new blogger BFF is Seree at http://www.awkwardcelebrity.com. She came to visit The Fab Girls yesterday with lots of lovely compliments about the blog and she also subscribed! (And you should, too!)

Anyway, I was all up on her blog when I saw this delightful post/tutorial about makeup for glasses. My own little FAB Girl wears glasses and wants to make her eyes pop, and I figured other FAB Girls probably do, too. Hit the jump for the post Seree was kind enough to let me share with you!

FAB Beauty: Natural Makeup Part 2

4 Apr

Our next FAB Beauty is Autumn, who is also wearing a beautiful natural makeup look. (Check out another one here.) I can’t think of any occasion this look isn’t right for, because again she is simply enhancing her features without the makeup taking over.

Her complexion is on the darker end of the makeup spectrum, which can make finding the perfect foundation difficult due to a lack of range, but she has done it! Her skin looks absolutely flawless, and you can get this FAB look by checking out the products she used after the jump.(Plus more shots of our model!)

FAB Beauty: Hot Pink Lips

28 Mar

I asked Keisha Ervin to do a guest beauty post for The Fab Girls because she always has really beautiful makeup looks on her Facebook page that are up-to-the-minute, like this hot pink lip. In addition to being a best selling author, she has her own blog, http://www.bowtiesandbarrettes.blogspot.com/ which features beauty, fashion and other fun stuff. Right now, she has a post about outline manicures that I am obsessed with! Continue to see what products she used to create this look, which would be a good look to keep in mind for prom.

FAB Face:Natural Makeup

12 Mar

I asked my friend Ernestine to do our inaugural FAB Face post because she’s gorgeous, extremely photogenic, and her makeup always slays. (So does her hair, but that’s a post for another day!)

Here she is giving a gold, smoky eye with a natural lip that is great for day or  evening. Looks like this are perfect for young women because you want to use cosmetics that enhance your features without being overpowering.

Take the jump for an indoor pic, closeup of her eyes and a complete list of products!

FAB, Girl! or Girl, Bye!: Long Oval Nails

12 Mar

FAB singer Mya painted hers a blue shade.

FAB fashionista Amber Rose and FAB actress Keke Palmer are into the trend.

Styleblazer.com posted the pictures of these FAB ones rocking the new nail trend; long, oval nails. I think they’re sort of scary looking, like talons.

What’s your opinion?

March 10 is Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day

10 Mar

Today is Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day.

FAB women and girls must know the facts about this disease, and how to protect themselves from it.

African American women are disproportionately affected by HIV/AIDS, with the rate of cases among them being five times higher than average in some cities. Black women account for 66% of new cases among women. Even worse, HIV/AIDS is the leading cause among black women ages 25-34.

FAB Actress Viola Davis Talks Self Esteem with Aunt Oprah

28 Feb

It’s hard to look at this stunning woman and imagine her having low self esteem, but like many of us, she experienced self-doubt. Listen to her tear-jerking interview with Aunt Oprah and she talks self esteem and the small joys of life.
