Fab or Drab: NYC Edition!

Hey all! It's time for another round of Fab or Drab. This time we'll be checking out brown beauty from fabulous New York City!

Lets get to it!


Sanaa Lathan looked absolutely gorgeous while promoting her new series "The Clevelands". Her hair was parted down the center and barrel curled for lots of body. Her understated, but glam, makeup was given a pop of color from her red lip stick. Who says brown skin can't wear bright red lip color?!

Deborah Roberts looked amazing at the NYC Ballet's Annual Gala. Her skin was bronzed to perfection, and her smokey eye was paired with lush black lashes. She wore another fave lip look of mine, a sheer pink nude, another great look on all shades of brown skin!

Rhinna was dangerously close to the danger zone in NYC with this hair...

But she pulled it out with this fab makeup! Her skin was absolute glowing perfection, and you know how I love a red lip!
(*Side note: I'm pretty sure that's my freshman dorm from college in the background with the green roof. Random, I know...)

Sadly, model Veronica Webb managed to slip to the Drab side of this beauty equation. I'm all for a natural look, but Veronica didn't quite manage it this time. Believe it or not, the natural look actually takes makeup! This totally naked face just isn't hitting it. Sorry V.

So, did it get it right? Let me know!

I think Rihanna is totally DRAB. It looks like she slept in her makeup and rolled straight out of the bed. Her hair kinda reminds me of those charaters you would see in a Dr. Seuss book.

Dr. Seuss! Never would have thought of that! I must admit, I've seen pics of this style since then and it looks better now. I think...

Oh, well. Still love her style!
