4 Floral Inspired Lip Colors for Botanical Beauties

Spring and summer are such romantic seasons. Days last longer, birds sing and blooming flowers start to fill countrysides, cities and living rooms with color and undeniable beauty. Bring the magic of summer to your beauty routine with a fresh, botanical lip color from Finding Ferdinand.

TULIPS

This flower originates in Holland and belongs to the “Liliaceae” family, known for it’s 109 species. Still, they bloom perfectly in NYC parks and have the ability to reach a height between 4 and 18 inches.  Tulips evoke a combination of youth and sophistication we can translate into a smooth but striking look for our lips.  

GET THE LOOK:

FLAMING FUCHSIA + BERRY JAM + CRANBERRY

For a color that is primarily pink, begin with a combination of Flaming Fuchsia and Cranberry.  Next, integrate Berry Jam to give the shade a slightly deeper purple undertone.

CHOCOLATE COSMOS

“Cosmos Atrosanguineus” is now extinct; however, the flower once inhabited multiple areas of Mexico. Legend has it that it smelled like chocolate.  Imagine a date bringing you a bouquet of these -- chocolate and flowers in one.  Yummy.

GET THE LOOK:

SINFUL + BING CHERRY

We usually advise against overdosing on Sinful, as it can easily dominate the finished color.  However, this is your chance to get crazy!  Use just a small amount of Bing Cherry for a hint of flirty red.

IXORA

These exotic flower is commonly known as “West Indian Jasmine,” which is frequently used in Hindu worships and Indian medicines. It symbolizes passion and sensuality. WARNING: Approach this lip color with caution as it may induce uncontrollable sexiness.

GET THE LOOK:

TEQUILA SUNRISE + RED FANTASY + CRANBERRY

This color is an interesting combination of orange, red and pink.  Add all three base colors in equal proportion to maintain balance.

PEONIES

When it comes down to the most beautiful flowers in the world, Peonies rise victorious. Native to Asia, Southern Europe and Western North America, this flower has an intoxicating fragrance and bursts with femininity. Blair Waldorf would be proud.

GET THE LOOK:

MAGENTA POP + AU NATUREL

For a smooth, natural look mix only a small amount of Magenta Pop with Au Naturel.  This no-stress color is perfect for easy application.  Simply use your finger to swipe some on -- no brush necessary.
