FACE VALUE: We’re still celebrating the recent success of another of our longtime favourite certified divas, Tifa, who became the first Jamaican to be signed by Cover Girl. Tifa is a glamour girl at heart, and she says the makeup brand’s Full Spectrum collection, for which she is the face, is a godsend. “Especially when I have to go to more places than one for promotional purposes, I don’t have to touch up, retouch up or do anything to myself. I can just move,” she said in an interview. “When you’re on shoots, it makes the process easier because you don’t have to stop every minute to pat your face.” Overall, she feels honoured to have been asked to represent a celebrated brand like Cover Girl, which is increasingly catering to the chocolate girls. Says Tifa, “I’m excited to be a part of and to represent a brand that is promoting makeup for women of colour.”
THE CHARMER: The camera loves Talia Soares and we’re totally feeling her vibe as host of the televised reality series Losing It. From Intense to the Miss Jamaica World finals to the FAME FM airwaves, she’s grown up before our eyes, nurturing an appealing mix of spunk, edginess and effortless beauty, with no shortage of self-confidence. We see a late-night talk show in her future.
