Yes We Cannes: Bright Summer Lips from this year's Film Festival

Cannes -- a city in the French Riviera along the shores of the mediterranean, where the glamour of the silver screen meets supermodel style.  The Cannes Film Festival is not only where the most anticipated movies of the year are released, but also one of the most awaited for breathtaking jewelry, couture gowns and fabulous beauty.  Two of our favorites brights of this year’s festival are Karlie Kloss’s cherry, and Emily Blunt’s citrus red.  These two fruity lip colors are perfect for your summer runways.  Whether you have a June wedding to attend, are grabbing drinks at a rooftop bar, or are just strutting the produce aisle at Whole Foods, yummy colors are always sure to impress.

CHERRY

Karlie Kloss paired her sleekly parted bob and carefully contoured makeup with a sexy cherry lip.  With a double-slitted Louis Vuitton dress and intertwined diamond Choppard hoops, only one word can describe the look: bold.  Not for the faint of heart.

GET THE LOOK:

BING CHERRY + NOB HILL RED + CRANBERRY

To mix the perfect cherry lip, start with Bing Cherry as the base.  Next, brighten the shade by adding a touch of Nob Hill Red.  To finish off the look, round out the berry tones with a small dose of Cranberry.

CITRUS

Emily Blunt complemented a mosaic-inspired Peter Pilotto dress by a striking orange lip.  This look oozes summer sweetness.  It’s time for hair texture and just a touch of tangerine lipstick.

GET THE LOOK:

TEQUILA SUNRISE + NOB HILL RED + BING CHERRY

For this orange-red, begin with an equal combination of Bing Cherry and Nob Hill Red.  Deepen the shade by adding just a bit of Bing Cherry.
