An Exclusive Play-by-Play of Michael Darby and Chris Bassett's Heated Confrontation

Here's a play-by-play of the shocking moment between Michael and Chris during the season 5 finale.

Gizelle Bryant's style choices have become quite the topic of conversation on The Real Housewives of Potomac — and at the Season 5 reunion, she really gave people something to talk about. 

The mom of three came ready to hash out this season's drama looking like a beam of sunshine in an asymmetrical canary dress with silver embellishments designed by Married to Medicine alum Lisa Nicole. However, it's her incredible glowing, glam that we can't get enough of.

Gizelle paired her dazzling frock with soft yet radiant makeup that was absolutely flawless and sleek, shiny hair to match. And guess what? We got all the deets on how this reunion slay came together straight from Gizelle's talented glam squad: makeup artist Carli. L. Styles and hairstylist Kalixto Blount

The overall inspiration for Gizelle's makeup look was "fresh, radiant, bronzy" with a nod to the cast's trip to Portugal, Styles told BravoTV.com: "I wanted the makeup to be kind of lightweight and not too much because it was super hot when they were in Portugal." Styles used her signature glam approach, which she calls "expensive radiant skin," on Gizelle. 

"To achieve Gizelle’s glow, I prepped her skin with rose water and Milk Makeup Vegan Moisturizer," Styles shared. Styles then applied Danessa Myricks Beauty Vision Cream Cover Foundation and sheered it out for a more skin-like finish. "I love this particular foundation line, especially for women of color because of its shade range. It's incredible and for anything that's in HD, it's awesome. It looks just like skin and it's full coverage." Styles also played up Gizelle's cheeks with Maréna Beauté Blush Tarou in Marron Peach.

For Gizelle's eyes, Styles used soft, gold-toned eyeshadows to complement the yellow dress and then added her "favorite flirty" false eyelashes by DeClux Beauty in the style So Joan.

When it comes to putting together a reunion look, Blount compared it to getting ready for prom. "It’s like, you know, you style your hair every day and you're like, 'I want to look pretty for school. I want to look pretty for the boy in the cafeteria.' But for the prom, you’re like, 'I am going shut this thing all the way down... So we have to make it great, basically." 

Although Blount shared that Gizelle's hair usually comes "third" after finding the perfect dress and nailing her makeup look, the BFFs still landed on the perfect style to complement Gizelle's bright yellow ensemble. 

"Gizelle’s look was simplistic with a slight edge of Hollywood glam," Blount described. "We selected a wheat blonde hue with a few highlights and straight hair with a lot of body and bounce. She wanted her perfect yellow dress to stand out on its own! This was a battle... but I guess I can share the spotlight!"
