First Angola, now the Universe! Miss Universe 2011 Leila Lopes

During the  2011 Miss Universe Pageant, I found the National Costume portion most interesting. I wish they could have shown more costumes. I also wish I could have been there in São Paulo, Brazil. It looked absolutely georgeous! While I was disappionted that Miss USA, Alyssa Campanella, didn’t make it into the top 5, I was  pleased with the judges final choice.

Congrats to 25 year old, Leila Lopes, now the new Miss Universe 2011. She was elegant, graceful and charming to watch AND she was wearing the heck out of that evening gown (if only I could look that good). Leila is the  first Angolan Miss Universe and the fourth African woman to win the title.

Universal Beauty:
Leila Lopes’ soft, fresh, dewy foundation, with sheer rosy lips and very subtle blush is one that is sure to be duplicated.  Her eyes were neutral shimmer, lined top and bottom and smoked out at the corners. A soft highlight shade added on the brow bone and inner corner of the eyes. Of course no look is complete without the lashes mascara and sculpted brows.
