Paris fashion week may have come to a close but that doesn’t mean I am feeling any less inspired. I am capital O-bsessed with Mary Katrantzou Spring 2014. My favorite part? The lips, of course. MAC’s lip stains were used to create a “diffused” red lip that was a perfect mix of blue and yellow tones. This bold lip was applied to flawless complexions and beautifully bare lashes. So why am I so into this particular lip?! I LOVE the “blur” action. Yes, it’s deja vu. I have talked about this before, and I will say it again: If you’re afraid of a bold red lip, try blurring. It’s kinda this cool, bada** way of wearing a lip without looking like you are trying to hard. Rock this lip and you’ll look amazing, chic and modern. Also LOVE the gloss eye.
So how did Mary make her lippy choice? She let the clothes do the talking: “There is so much going on in the collection—so many patterns, embellishments, and materials—that it was important to keep the makeup quite simple: fresh skin and a matte mouth.”
