#BeautySpot: Gabriel Union & Her Plum Pout on The Late Show with Seth Meyers

Think Like A Man actress and star of Being Mary Jane, Gabriel Union kept it chill this week, as she stepped out to appear on the Late Show with Seth Meyers in New York, reminding us to add ‘trendy’ to her dossier.

Union looked sophisticated in a grey Michael Kors coat, a white pair of Alejandro Inglemo pumps and Suno  midi-dress,  but her choice to have her Hermes bag coordinate with the colour of her lipstick? Well, that landed her firmly on our radar and had her become our Beauty Spot of the Week, didn’t it.

The actress, who was on the show promoting her show, Being Mary Jane, snapped this shot backstage and posted it to instagram, captioning;

“Face beat for the cheap seats baby… switched it up for today’s NYC #BeingMaryJane press tour…”


The nude eyes and chic lashes by Hudda Kattan (Huda beauty) had our attention here at SPICE caught, though that matte, dark plum lip stain – Liquid Lipstick in “Sad Girl” by Anastasia Beverly Hills – pulled everything together and gave her face a magnificent glow.

Rocking a deep plum lip, similar to the shades that have dominated pouts on runways for last season, the wife of NBA star, Dwayne Wade, gave off an air of class with her look, with her entire face painted by celebrity makeup artist, Mario (of Makeup by Mario).

Want some of Gabriel’s look for yourself? We at SPICE say go grab the “Sad Girl” Liquid Lipstick from the Anastasia Beverly Hills site here. Those shopping in The States can find it at Macy’s for $20, or if you’re Nigeria-bound, find it for N6,000 here.

If the price is steep, an alternative lip shade would be MUA’s Luxe Velvet Lip Lacheur in “Kooky” – a steal at just £3, here.
