Exclusive: Tika Sumpter Talks Her Favorite Lipsticks, Favorite Designers And Acting Career

29 Oct

So if you’ve been reading my blog, way back in September I wrote a post about meeting actress Tika Sumpter at Ludacris’ Luda Day Weekend block party.

If you’re unfamiliar with Tika, she plays Malik’s girlfriend on BET’s ‘The Game’ and has a starring role in the remake of ‘Sparkle’ alongside Whitney Houston and Jordin Sparks.

I also just happen to think she’s one of the most beautiful women in the world and I almost didn’t mosey my way over to speak with her…almost.

Check out my Q&A with the beautiful Ms. Tika Sumpter below.


Me: One thing I really like about you is that you’re not afraid to try a bold lip. What are some of your favorite lipsticks?

Tika: Ruby Woo I’m stuck on that one. It’s vibrant and it really pops, I love that.

Me: I’m looking at you right now and your skin is just glowing. What’s your skincare routine?

Tika: I just wash it everyday.

Me: So you’re just blessed?

Tika: No, no! [Laughs] I wash it with Neutrogena

Me: Besides a Ruby Woo, what are some other lipsticks you love.

Tika: I like Cover Girl, they have all sorts of pinks, I just love color, I feel like our skin pops with color and that’s what I love. Like your purple is beautiful.

Me: Thank you very much! So do you have any other beauty tips you can give? Especially for women like us with brown skin tones?


Tika: I think the basis is to make sure your foundation is the right shade. Black Opal makes a really good foundation and it’s inexpensive.  Also MAC makes really good browns so make sure your base is good and you’re set.

Me: Back to you though, I know you said you’re taping for The Game…what else are you doing acting wise?

Tika: I have a film coming out in September the 18th with Anna Faris and Chris Evans called “What’s Your Number.” We’re about to start taping for The Game a week or two from now and I have other projects in the works that I can’t talk about yet.

Me: What about your style though? Are those Jeffrey Campbells shoes? Those are amazing…

Tika: They are! And they’re super comfortable. I’m obsessed; Jeffrey is my new obsession.

Me: Who are some other designers that you like to wear?

Tika: I love Giuseppe Zanotti because he’s super comfortable and I can look cute in heels and be comfortable all night. Who am I stuck on? Right now it’s Jeffrey…I just love the odd, crazy shoes.

Me: Do you have any last words for your fans?

Tika: Thank you you guys, the bloggers, have been so supportive of me. Everybody! Fans have been so supportive; I just want to always be accessible so thank you for the love.

Me: That’s what we like about you; you’re always accessible, always sweet.

Tika: Thank you!
