I had so much fun painting the perfect summer lips at Garnish and Moulagerie's First Thursday event! The look of the evening was inspired by Drew Barrymore's bright siren lips and brilliant glow in the latest pages of C Magazine. Pairing vibrant and punchy shades of coral, fuchsias, and reds with a fresh complexion is definitely IN.

If you didn't get a chance to come by Garnish and spend time with me in the makeup chair don't worry. You can achieve this season's trending look with some of my favorite products and a few easy to follow steps:
Now, onto the lips.
- Prep them for staying power. Using a lip pencil, line lips and fill them in completely with color to achieve the desired matte finish. I’m really loving how creamy and long-lasting N Y X cosmetic lip liners are. Their Fuschia, Plush Red, and Coral shades are just perfect! Drew Barrymore's new cosmetic line - Flower Beauty, also has a great range of vibrant shades that flatter different skin tones. Add a coat of your favorite lip gloss or lip balm for a more luscious look.
Makeup Artist trick: for a soft rosy blush in a pinch, take a touch of lip liner with your finger, apply to cheeks and blend.
- The last step. Do a quick spritz with Rose Water to finish your makeup and achieve a dewy finish.
Be bright, be bold, be playful this summer. And remember, joy is a woman's best cosmetic!
