POP! Sometimes, you gotta be bright! When TV DivaGal received her shipment of P.O.W. Cosmetics, created by New Orleans-based recording artist Kendra Williams, I admit I was a little intimidated by the intense shades. But as Kendra shared with me, “don’t be afraid of the P.O.W., a little color goes a long way.” And she was right. P.O.W., meaning portrait of a woman — the name of her album — offers a full line of products that can turn your face from awww to oh!
Think┬á creamy colorful lipsticks and pack-a-punch cheek powders; my Gossip Table makeup artist Andi often pops my cheeks with Mauve-e-lous. My fave items are P.O.W. Gel Eyeliners in colors Stone Cold, Blue Diamond and Mermaid. One thin line will make your eyes pop! Get your P.O.W. on at powcosmetics.com.
SEE. Image Gal says add a little culture to your life. Artist Jose Sanint showcased his tapestries of restored, repurposed and ceremonial Tibetan textiles during Armory Arts Week. Featuring contemporary designs by the Colombian architect, these beautiful textiles have been hand-woven by Tibetan artisans using carefully restored antique ceremonial garbs and an ancient Tibetan-Himalayan-Buddhist weaving tradition. See more of his work at Solomon Arts Gallery in Tribeca.
BUY. The DivaGals love learning about hot new fashion and the designers behind the brands. We met a bunch of talented ones at NOLCHA Fashion Lounge, held right after NYFW Fall ’14 at the Empire Hotel. Showcasing everything from apparel to timepieces, the designers’ passion for their wares was evident in everyone we spoke to, like handbag designer Christopher Belt of 3Seven&8. He created his chic line to be versatile: clutches transform into shoulder purses and wristlets; satchels are easily adjustable and offer abundant pocket space. We also loved the looks from Brooklyn-based designer Shana Luther, House of Horology watches and Raj Jewelry. Check out our slideshow video below, and start making up your fashion wishlist!
