5 Spring Lipsticks to Compliment Your Signature Scent

Although the flowers have yet to poke their heads out and fill the air with the sweet smell of spring, we girls at Finding Ferdinand are ready to bring back our favorite scents for the new season.  And of course, what is the perfect fragrance without an equally perfect beauty look?  Whether you're more Chanel or Marc Jacobs, Finding Ferdinand has the perfect shade to compliment your signature scent.

1. EAST HAMPTON BY NOMATERRA

Besides some wishful thinking for summer, the East Hampton perfume oil by Nomaterra inspires a fresh face with a citrus twist.  The fragrance features a green, woody base, accented by citrus and pear top notes.  Use Creamy Mauve to lighten up Orange Sorbet for a pop of juicy mandarin.   The florescence of the shade will ensure that your look is fresh for summer, while the lightness ensures you will always be beach ready and hassle free.  We'll meet you at Main Beach.

2. HONEY BY MARC JACOBS

The lip color is reserved for flirts only.  Unlike the citrusy East Hampton orange, this shade is richer and more in-your-face.  Honey by Marc Jacobs features a honey and vanilla base with fruity mandarin top notes -- the perfect combination of sexy and sweet.  First, transform a typical date-night red with a boost of Tequila Sunrise and a bit of shimmering Orange Flare.  Next, begin accepting applications for your new summer fling -- there will be a line.

3. COCO MADEMOISELLE BY CHANEL

Coco Mademoiselle by Chanel is the essential french girl perfume.  With hints of citrus, rose, and white floral, the sheer scent portrays youthful ease and luxury.  To compliment, FF designed a subtle rosy red to make your lips look naturally flushed.  Simply add a dap of Red Fantasy to some Au Naturel for a simple and elegant spring look.  Violå!

4. BONBON BY VIKTOR&ROLF

Neither this scent nor this lip color are for the faint of heart.  BonBon by Viktor&Rolf begins with intense caramel and sandalwood base notes followed by hints of tangerine and blackcurrant.  Pair the perfume with a sensual summer red.  Use Nob Hill Red and Bing Cherry as a base before lightening it up with some Classic Coral.  Then go order a margarita, who cares if it's only 1:30. And yes, you'll have salt on the rim.

5. FLOWERBYKENZO BY KENZO

Just because there is a red poppy on the bottle does not mean that FlowerbyKenzo calls for a red lip.  The notes of wild hawthorne, Bulgarian rose, and Parma violet combine to create a contemporary, powdery scent.  Many actually believe that FlowerbyKenzo smells like lipstick.  To compliment the freshness of the fragrance, FF is keeping the lip color light with a soft violet.  The shade is comprised of mostly Marvelous with Berry Jam and Flaming Fuchsia adding a lavender pop.
