Lana Del Rey’s “Bikini So Teeny”


Pastel nails, a colorful lip and a cat: I certainly had an intuition that this would be my August '14 beauty philosophy, but, like everything else, it wasn’t until Lana gave it her stamp of approval that I felt abundantly sure of this fact. Pamela Cochrane was on makeup for the August Rolling Stone cover, and tells us she used a combo of MAC Cherry lip pencil and Chantecaille Poppy Lip Stick for the lips. The nails are Essie's Bikini So Teeny. As for the cat, I’m going to take a wild guess here and say it's by…Pets On Lex? Either way, it looks good on her.

    "Down on the West Coast, they got a saying:" if you're not using 'Bikini So Teeny,' you're doing it all wrong.

    I guess I've been doing it all wrong. Running go store pronto.

    i like her style, it's nice to see something other than no-makeup makeup on a celebrity once in a while

    • Emma Hager

      Yes! And she has such a strong aesthetic, too. You can tell the older iconography goes far beyond just beauty for her. It's shaped how she identifies herself, emotionally categorizes herself, etc. Love.

    • JY

      There's an interview with her on YouTube from when she was living in a New Jersey trailer park. Even though she had little money, she said that she "always" had lipliner and fake lashes.

      • Coco

        isn't her dad a multi-millionaire?

        • JY

          She said that she wanted to do her own thing, even if it meant being poor for a while. It's up to you whether you believe her.

          no he isn't.

  • NazNYC

    I'm curious about what she uses for that cat eye we often see
