There is no doubt that actress Taraji P. Henson is a very striking woman, and at age 46 she continues to maintain her stunning appearance. The Empire star was recently snapped in photos on vacation, relaxing and looking sexy on a tropical island, where creamy-colored sand and turquoise water with a blue sky painted a beautiful backdrop. We’re not sure exactly where the actress is enjoying the sun and surf, although some have guessed it is in the Caribbean, possibly the Turks and Caicos Islands. What we do know is that Henson has brought her fab style to the beach and is workin’ it. In addition, we can even detect a blue pedicure, which matches the nautical serenity around her.
Instagram photos show the star looking chic wearing a Muur Swagg printed Dashiki dress over a bikini and her hair styled in loc extensions with sexy shaved sides. Taraji’s Dashiki has already sold out, but you can find more Dashikis from the same brand here. When it comes to beauty tips, Henson has shared several of her own with Allure.com. She doesn’t go for the big red carpet showstopper when relaxing casually, so her makeup artist gave her a great item to use: highlight-contour stick called Perfect Blend by Ashunta Sheriff.
“Sometimes I just cover my dark circles, contour my cheekbones, throw on bronzer, and I’m out the door,” Henson reveals. Regarding care of her beautiful tresses, before heading to bed Taraji wraps her hair “in a scarf at night to keep it straight.” In spite of her daily low-maintenance routine, beauty and makeup are close to the star’s heart. Taraji admits, “If I hadn’t gone into acting, I probably would have been a cosmetologist.”
