I don’t attending Fashion Week. I don’t really have time to spend a week in New York attending shows (I’d rather be home with my two little girls and husband), but I still pay (some) attention to the shows. It’s hard not to, PR Reps send me a ton of info about the looks on the runway. I get many emails detailing who did the makeup, which products they used in the hair and which polish was on the models’ nails.
Just a few days ago Carolina Herrera’s show took place, and I was really inspired by the pink lippies worn by the models! The pink is light and a little translucent, with some shimmer and shine. It’s a look that paired nicely with the glowy skin that the models also sported, a very pretty look that works for all women, regardless of your skin tone.
To get this look, I actually layered a few different lip products from Burt’s Bees. The reason to this really is to take advantage of the different levels of pigmentation, shimmer and shine.
I used these products:
Lip Crayon in Carolina Coast: I started with this color for the light to midtone pink shade. It has decent coverage and I’ve found that a good base of color like this when I’m layering prevents me from looking washed out.
Lip Shimmer in Guava: Lip Shimmer also has pretty high pigmentation coverage, though I just applied a very light layer. I wanted the shimmer! Grapefruit and Champagne also would have been good options.
Lip Gloss in Ocean Sunrise: I applied a little gloss in the center of my lower and upper lips last. It added some nice shine, and applying mostly in the center of my lips has a little plumping effect for my thin lips.
I love how the pink looks on me! It definitely is pretty for spring, but also perfect for the transition to fall. It’s just… so pretty!
