I am excited to introduce a new feature here on S&LF called “From The Pros”.  I am blessed that through my work I am able to connect with some amazing ‘glam squad’ professionals.  Each of them have little tricks and secrets that help give their clients a polished look.  Well I’ve decided to pick their brains and share those tips with my fellow Single Ladies so we can be as FAB as ever!  Enjoy!

THE PRO:  Melissa Hibbert

BACKGROUND:  Beauty Expert, Educator, Celebrity Make Up Artist, Owner of Sheeq Cosmetics Luxury Make Up for women of color


*Kiehl’s Avocado Eye Cream-Melissa loves this because she says it hydrates.  She also appreciates the fact that this product brightens the eye area even after it drys

*Sheeq Cosmetics Tinted Primer-Melissa says this product is fab for women of color because you can wear it solo and it gives you some coverage as well as making your skin silky soft.  Also, you can use it under make up to help keep your make up in place for much longer.

*Lauren Mercier Translucent Powder-Melissa loves this powder better than most because it takes away the shine without leaving a chalky residue.  She says the powder is so fine, it settles into the pores without making your make up look caked on.

*Kevin Aucoin Skin Enhancer-Melissa says this product is concealer, that is uber  rich and creamy.  She says too often you have to add moisturizer to a concealer to thin it out because it can be to thick and pasty.
