So as we’re reporting on the latest news, style, and trends, we’re always working behind the scenes to bring you exclusive celebrity interviews!
Today the absolutely lovely Queen Latifah took some time out of her super busy schedule to give you Bombshells the scoop on a few of her fashion and beauty faves:
The New Jersey native is seen as a style icon for curvaceous women, and says, “I wear clothes I feel comfortable in and it’s something I encourage all women to do.”
She continues, “…Choose colors that make you happy. I tend to favor classic pieces over trendy because they will last a lifetime.” Regarding her favorite wardrobe items, she says, “I of course love my sweat suits to bike in and lounge around. I love my Burberry trench because it’s stylish and practical. I also love Ralph Lauren pencil skirts because they make me feel like a sexy school teacher.”
The Queen is known for her flawless skin, so we also asked her to indulge a few beauty secrets! She said, “I always make sure to wear sunscreen when I’m out in the sun. I also prefer using mineral makeup products to keep my skin from looking shiny-COVERGIRL Queen Collection Natural Hue Minerals Pressed Powder is my favorite because the coverage lasts all day and goes on even all around my face. Of course, when I’m not working I like to wear very little makeup so I can give my skin a break.”
For those who would like similar skin, Queen says, “I always make sure to wash my makeup off before going to bed-also, it’s important to wear SPF and opt for a thick moisturizer, especially in the winter.” She adds, “I cannot live without a great gloss and bronzer. My favorite is COVERGIRL ShineBlast Lip Gloss and COVERGIRL Queen Collection Natural Hue Minerals Bronzer. I also have to wear a fragrance every day-my new scent Queen is perfect for all occasions.”
The rapper, singer, and actress who admits to still getting starstruck when meeting Prince closes by saying, “ If you feel great your confidence is bound to shine through.” Thanks Queen!
