I’m not usually the greatest at picking up new music, and I’m definitely a stick-with-my-classic-faves kinda person, but Ciara is one of those artists whose albums I bought on CD (anyone remember those?) and I was a big fan so I am so glad to see she’s back making music.
Ciara is looking amazing in this video and I’m definitely inspired by her two makeup looks, her ombré hair (I don’t want this trend to end, it suits everyone) and her 90s inspired track pants and vest combo.
The vampy lip she’s sporting in the house party scenes of the video were all the rage on NY Fashion Week catwalks, ranging from ruthless reds and passionate plums to hues as deep as aubergine.
I’m yet to find my perfect plum but recently during my Instagram #5daymakeupchallenge I came up with a dupe using Nightmoth lipliner and everyone’s favourite red, Ruby Woo.
I definitely want to give the shimmery grey shadow look a try, I’m sure that combined with a nude lip the way Ciara wears it in this video, that it’s a look that could work for anyone.
Body Party is a pretty sensual tune with luscious lyrics, wicked video imagery from the legendary Director X, as well as some pretty steamy choreography.
I’m loving it already so hopefully this will be a start to some success for the singer, who has been struggling to keep any attention in recent years. Ciara’s upcoming album, self titled Ciara is due to drop on the 9th of July.
