Let’s go ahead and add Sanaa Lathan to the club of people who have found the fountain of youth. (Rumors say it’s on the 6). She exuded Spring vibes for the All Def Movie Awards.
Sanaa looked refreshing in a creamy beige dress, giving us major cleavage. Okay, we see you! For our shorter beauties, when wearing a midi-dress, it can make you look stumpy. However, wearing a strappy sandal, like Sanaa, will further elongate your legs.

The best part of her look is the hair and makeup. She gives loose, soft curls paired with a powerfully pink lip. When wearing neutrals (beige, browns, creams) a strong lip will instantly glam up your look and prevent you from looking washed out. Sanaa kept a soft eye as to draw all the attention to her lip.
What really set’s off the look will be your lip. I love Beautie Bakerie (owned by black women!) Très Jolie Lip Whip. No more wearing nude lips or lip gloss to kiss your boo. This lip whip goes on and stays on!
Beauties, you can now ease into Spring, just like Sanaa Lathan! Show us your best look with the hashtag #SoBeautiful.
