Kim Kimble shared with Mane Addicts that she used a Diana Ross album cover for a little hear inspiration where the singer rocked “a loose, messy, lion’s mane type of hair” instead of her “typical tight curl.”

Rokael added, “We went for a very smokey eye because Kelly really loved the idea of something dramatic. I used a black eyeliner from MAC called Smoulder. I blended her eye makeup really well and made sure her eye shape was more almond as opposed to round.”

(2) Sade

Kim Kimble: “Then the next inspiration was Sade, so we have two extremes. One tight, pulled back twist, which is a cleaner version, but still a strong statement with the hair. The other version was bigger and more wild. So we have two opposite looks. Kelly is the type of girl that can pull both of those looks off. She can do sleek, or big.”

“Pulled back is easy. You can use something from my product line called Hair Jelly. Just slick the hair back and use some hairspray. Then we add hair to make the pony ultra long by twisting into her own hair.”

Rokael Lizama: “We went for a very classic Sade, with a red lip and a ponytail. She tends to wear a lot of orangey-red lipsticks, so I used a shade that I know works well for a lot of different people called Lady Danger by MAC.”

(3) Farida Khelfa Goude

Rokael shared that she “used a gel eyeliner from Frankie Rose and applied all over the lid. Then I used a blending brush to make it look smooth. Last I used the same lipstick we used for Sade, which was Lady Danger right around the edges.”
Kelly, did that!
