Malika Models “Tropical Beauty” By NARS

Malika Haqq Do you guys recognize this beautiful brown sista? I know when I first saw the image I did not. It is none other than twenty-two year old actress Malika Haqq. Make-up artist and photographer Troy Jensen said he was moved to photograph the bronze goddess wearing colors from the new Tropical Beauty make-up collection by NARS, when the actress showed up at his studio one afternoon to pick up prints for her good friend Khloe Kardashian. So how did Troy create this stunning look on Malika? Click over to the next page to see exactly what the make-up guru used.

Read on…

I love the Bright teal blue eye shadow in “Tropic” against Malika’s flawless, dark almond skintone…isn’t she hot? And she has an identical twin sister Khadijah, whom I can never tell apart. I will be doing a beauty story with them together soon for sure. I used the golden eye shadow duo in “Scorching Sun” first as a base, then blended the bright glittery blue “Tropic” shadow over Malika’s entire eye lid. Then using a liquid black eye liner, I applied a very thin line along the lash line, and coated and curled her lashes.

I softly defined her brows with a light brown eyebrow pencil and to finish the look. I used the pale pinky-beige lip gloss in “Belize” to give a fresh, chic look with the blue eye make up. I also added a faux strip eyelash for added flare. This is a great collection for your island get away or if you just want to create one at home, like I did with the beautiful Malika Haqq. Let me know what you think? Would you dare to wear Blue?

  1. I dont know who Malika is but its a pretty shot of her.

  2. She looks so cute. I like this photographers work. very nice

  3. was she derwin’s baby mama on “the game” too?

  4. She is very pretty. I did not recognize her but I remember the twins from ATL. I wish her great success.

  5. Those girls are beautiful I wish they could do some more work other than keepin up with slutashians (i’m in a pissy mood so everyone is getting it 😆 ) Her sister and her are so gorgeous they need to step up to the plate we need some sistas up there

  6. Love the blue on her eyes…that blending is gorgeous.

    :brownsista:

  7. Very lovely shot of Malika.
    Troy Jensen did a very nice job on the make-up.
    It would be cool to see more of her, along with her sister…

  8. I love that look and I love NARS! (Beauty Junkie!) Her lashes are cute, but for the life of me I can’t put on fake lashes. Money wasted on MAC and Shu Uemura lashes only worn once.

  9. @mejesa get the individual. I love them better. They make my eyes pop lol. Yes she look lovely.
    @voice to much. 😆

  10. Hate on the Kim K and her sisters but , I respect the fact that they have girlfriends that are black. Sometimes, you will see a nonblack woman with only white friends. I don’t know the Kim K and family, but they just seem real too me. And for the record, they aren’t white, they are Armenian. And Armenians are just as “real” as black folks. People need to let the K’s do their thing. It’s not that serious.

  11. Bohwe: Hate on who? pleas esit down with that hate mess kim k is a wanna be black i’m black,enough said,what the hell does them having black girlfriends have to do with those girls doing something to put themselves out there like that ? I just want to see them more nothing wrong with THAT! get off that hater train girl,it’s pathetic, i know they real i love khloe she is my favorite but im still saying these chicks are worth more than just being someone’s homegirl

  12. I didn’t know it was her, until I read the name. Very nice :brownsista:

  13. she looks pretty.. her face and eyes are so intriguing..she leaves you wanting more…makeup is good too :thumbsup:

    so wait a minute… because they have black friends… this somehow makes them “special”? GIRL PLEASE!!!! i’m so sic of the mentality of some black folk. are you trying to say they deserve a medal or some sort of praise for having friends that are black? LMAO!!! lawd… when will we wake up and stop looking for validation from people? *smdh*

  15. I will not respond to the posts. Only because I was trying to be open-minded about the Khardashians , considering the fact that I don’t know them personally.

  16. Bohwe girl respond, it ain’t that serious we all have dumb moments nothing serious

  17. Troy Jensen’s blog is sweet. Thanks for the link.

  18. I don’t know here either , but the portraits show classically beauty..

  19. OOOOOHH i knew she looked familiar when i was watching the show. that’s where she is from…love the makeup and i would dare to wear blue!!! i do anyway 😆 :brownsista:

  20. :lol2: Voice, girl you are too much.

    I love the twins “uh un rudeness” My favorite line from the movie!!! I like them on the Kardashians too. I think they bring Khloe back down to earth. They seem to be the only ones around them to tell them when they’re wrong!!!
