I’m taking inspiration for this week’s post from a picture I snapped over the weekend. I was doing a studio shoot and my sweet friend brought some peonies from her garden. I handed them to one of my models and said, “Hold them like this.” My awesome make-up artist Valerie Hammer immediately said, “WAIT! Let me match her lip color to the flowers.” The bold lip color played nicely off of her big, soft curls courtesy of The Mane Affairs and when I saw the image, I fell in love. While Valerie used a mix of two colors from a Inglot’s Freedom Lip Palette (not sold in stores) you can get close to those peony lips with MAC’s Candy Yum Yum Lipstick seen in the grouping below.
So in honor of spring, and peonies and hot pink, I’ve pulled together a collection of accessories that makes it easy to add this wonderful, happy color into any outfit. For me this bright pink (dare we call it fuchsia?) is just about as much fun you can have with color in an outfit. The opposite of romantic, soft, pale pink, this color screams fun, sassy and flirty. Find these accessories here.
And because the peony is blooming right now but doesn’t stay around for long, I’ve got some ideas for how you can have these beautiful blooms with you all year long. Either on a mug or your cell phone case, these peonies will bring you warmth and happiness long after the real ones have bloomed out. Find these items here.
Hope you’ve enjoyed my flowery post this week!!
