The women at the 4th Annual ESSENCE Black Women in Hollywood Luncheon at the were looking lovely and like such ladies; it was a pleasure to view the photos. My stand-out favorite beauty of the day was Gabrielle Union. I loved her old style Hollywood glam look—replete with waves and red lips to boot.
I guess I am particularly smitten with this look because this happens to be my signature look—clean eyes with liner, defined brows, flushed cheeks, and red lips.
