Strawberry & Coral: Spring Face of the Day




Today's look features Laura Mercier's Creme Smooth Lip Colour in Strawberry Sorbet--a bright strawberry-pink with a slight sheen. This was my first time using it and I wasn't sure if I could pull it off (it's actually more vibrant than it looks in these photos), but I enjoyed wearing it today while doing some Saturday morning shopping. To maintain a bright and spring-like tone I paired it with Urban Decay's 24/7 liner in the coral-pink shade, Streak. On cheeks is Chanel's Presage, one of my favorite warm corals. And on eyes I used a brown felt-tip liner and a bit of Chanel's Stylo Yeux pencil in Taupe on my lower lash line, but skipped shadow entirely, since I wanted the lip color to be the main focus. This is a very simple and casual daytime look, but it could be dressed up for evening or a special occasion by adding false lashes and a more dramatic winged liner.

    1. Hi Tracy, Thank you! It will look great on you :) I like that it has a little shimmer to it, but it's not too frosty. It's quite bright but still wearable.
