Having just launched last year, MAKE, the New York City-based, for-benefit cosmetics brand, has proven that creativity is the focal point of its collections. (Last fall, for instance, the collaborative label launched its Post-Impression collection, with chromatic hues inspired by the Hudson River Valley.) And its latest, a partnership between retailer-turned-designer Maryam Nassir Zadeh and makeup artist Ozzy Salvatierra, is just as artful. Available this month, Celeste e Verde draws inspiration from the vibrant-yet-industrial landscape depicted in the 1964 Italian film Il Deserto Rosso, or Red Desert. (Celeste e Verde, which means “sky blue and green” in Italian, was the working title of the Michelangelo Antonioni-directed film.) The palette includes a mix of earthy tones, powdery pastels, and brightly pigmented hues evocative of the dreamy California lifestyle shown in the short film shot by Alexa Karolinski. Our must-haves: the bronzy, gold-flecked cream gel liner and minty, cobalt-blue gloss (dabbed on sparingly, of course).
The ladies who lunched with Louboutin today (like Emmy Rossum and Alessandra Ambrosio) broke out the flower crowns early—after all, there are still two weeks until Coachella. Blooms aside, Rossum once again proved that purple—no matter where you wear it—paired with berry lips makes for a stunning spring combo. Either the Shameless actress is following Dita Von Teese on Instagram for beauty inspiration or she’s reading Style.com, but judging by our recent interview, we’re just going to assume it’s the latter.
Dita Von Teese posted this photo on Instagram yesterday to celebrate the coming of lilac season (at least in warmer regions), but pretty spring blooms aside, the bigger beauty takeaway was how stunning a deep berry lip looks with pastels. In lieu of tucking away my darker tubes as the mercury rises, I’ll be keeping them in rotation to counter my saccharine sartorial choices (like the lavender Miu Miu jacket I’ve had buried at the back of my closet all winter). For a shade similar to the one the burlesque dancer is sporting here, try Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Black Cherry (currently available in limited-edition, Marchesa packaging).
