Essence Black Women In Hollywood Daytime Makeup

October 5, 2015

ESSENCE magazine held its 4th Annual Black Women In Hollywood Luncheon on Feb. 24 at the Beverly Hills Hotel. The event takes place each year prior to the Oscars, and serves as a platform for black female celebrity figures to come together and feel appreciated in a positive light for all their accomplishments.

This year, several big name celebrities came out to support honorees Angela Bassett, Jennifer Hudson, Loretta Devine, and Viola Davis.

Many of the ladies shared glowing, natural daytime makeup looks in common, using gray shadows and nude lip shades.
