Lily Collins' Badass Burnt Orange

Lily Collins just can't get enough signature looks.  We have been coveting those power brows since we first saw her in The Blind Side in 2009.  Since then, she's added a choppy pixie cut and sultry burnt orange lip to her enviable beauty queue.  With her makeup, Collins always manages to strike the perfect balance of dewiness, rosiness, and smokiness.  In other words, she is definitely perfect and most likely endowed by the cosmetics gods themselves.  Let's look to her recent appearance at the Chanel Paris-Salzburg Metiers d'Art collection at the Park Avenue Armory.  She strikes the perfect balance between fresh-faced and complete badass.  Instead of immediately reaching for the fire engine red, she adds power with a muted orange lip.  All in favor of her color as the Spring equivalent to the vamp shade, say I.



The backbone of this color is Orange Sorbet, which already has a fairly equal blend of red and yellow undertones.  If you prefer a stronger pop of red, add a small amount of Red Fantasy.  To intensify the Orange undertones, add Orange Flare.  No matter which specific combination you choose, the shimmer in all three bases will leave your lips looking dewy and fresh.
