“Real Housewives of Atlanta” Get Sheree Whitfield’s High-Fashion Look!

You’ve been waiting patiently for the last part of Bravo’s explosive “Real Housewives of Atlanta” Season 8 reunion and it’s finally here! Airing on Sunday, April 3, you will finally get to see the entire cast hash out their differences, get things off their chest, and also see the ladies’ glamorous fashion styles one more time.

Speaking of fashion, let’s talk about Sheree Whitfield and her gorgeous champaign diamond incrusted Balmain gown and plum lips. If you’ve been wondering how to nail this sexy, high-end look, NewYou.com had a one-on-one talk with Whitfield’s make up artist, Mila Thomas, and she gave us the scoop on prepping Whitfield for the reunion and tips for the fans to recreate the look.

“Sheree and I planned this look in its entirety at least a month in advance!” Thomas said excitedly. “My inspiration was her hair cut and color. I wanted a bold, sexy lip shade to juxtapose her warm blond tresses. I knew a lot of the other cast [members] would probably lean towards a smokey eye and nude lip, so I wanted to go in the opposite direction.”

Thomas adds how she wanted Whitfield’s look to scream “YHG” aka “Young Hollywood Glam” which is Thomas’ signature look.

“[I used] a bold matte lip, white eyeliner, loads of mink luxurious lashes and a white eyeliner smoked on the bottom only,” Thomas said.

As you “Real Housewives of Atlanta” fans recall, Whitfield was the cast member who revealed that fellow cast member, Cynthia Bailey, knew that NeNe Leakes (Whitfield’s frenemy) was returning this season to the show.

Leakes had previously announced that she would not be returning for this season but left the girls in shock when she appeared out of the blue during the Housewives’ trip to Jamaica.

“Cynthia kept that one definitely under wraps. No one expected NeNe to pop up,” Whitfield told E! News in early February.

“At the time, we were like, ‘Did they run into each other at the hotel? The airport?'” Whitfield said. “We didn’t know what was going on.”

Below, Thomas details what products to get in order to achieve Whitfield’s high-fashion look during the RHOA reunion.

“I wanted her eyes to glisten in the lights when she blinked so I layered Revlon Photo Ready Eye Art + Lid  in Topaz Twinkle on the lid,” Thomas said.

“Morphe 35o Eye shadow Palette  Has my favorite bronze & gold shades of the moment for the eye crease and corners,” she added.
