Tika Sumpter is pretty popular these days, with her starring role on the OWN drama The Haves and the Have Nots. She portrays Candace Young, a woman who will stop at nothing to get what she wants. It’s one of Tika’s most challenging roles yet, and has garnered the former model much praise from fans and television critics.
A Queens, NY native, Tika is lauded for her sweet and charming personality; her infectious smile imparts a girl-next-door quality that we all love.
On her official website, tikasumpter.com, the actress shares the secrets that keep her looking fabulous at every turn. She loves “beauty products that work,” and swears by such beauty staples as CoverGirl Queen Collection Bronzer in Ebony. “It has a dual purpose, it can bronze you and contour you. It’s something that is accessible for everyone and easy to apply,” Tika says.
To remove her makeup, Tika loves to use coconut oil, not only because of its fragrance, but because it removes all traces of makeup easily and naturally. “Use it to take off the makeup and then follow your normal cleansing regimen. I have sensitive skin and this coconut oil does not clog my pores. This is my new discovery,” the actress says.
Not only is Tika a classic beauty, she also has a fabulous mane of hair. Some of Hype Hair’s favorite Sumpter signature styles are the topknot, the slicked back ponytail and, of course, the long and loose wavy look that she rocks so well!
