There are a lot of reasons to like fruit, especially in July. “It’s nature’s candy,” said the mom of your friend with a pantry full of fun-ish after school snacks like Annie’s cheddar bunnies and dried apple chips. As an adult, you get the wisdom—a really good summer nectarine, or strawberry, or tomato (the forgotten fruit) can get your mouth watering just as much as a watermelon Warhead did back in the day. Even if eating fruit’s not your thing, you can’t deny it’s nice to look at. See this Instagram account or, like, the general body of Cezanne’s work for reference. Plum, peach, cherry, lemon—just saying their names brings to mind vivid, inextricable colorscapes. How would you describe the color orange without accidentally referencing a big, juicy orange? (Trick question: you can’t.)

Last summer, fruit was the darling of Hollywood, but this summer it’s going editorial. Think this Pat McGrath Loewe campaign meets a melting paleta meets the three beads of condensation falling off a Red Delicious—juicy, glossy, and irresistible. We asked makeup artist Ingeborg to demonstrate the look, and she did so eight ways. Grab a bowl of berries and follow along.


Citrus And Shine


This is the look to try if peach is your color. On Mads, Ingeborg layered Citron and Fun eyeshadows from Face Stockholm, followed by a bright orange line in Camilla on just the top, outer corners of the eye. To make it juicier, she swiped Flesh Disco Nap eye gloss on top. On Mads' cheeks, Ingeborg layered lilah b. Lip & Cheek Duos in b. daring and b. cheeky. She finished the look with Clarins Eau a Levres in Orange Water with Chanel lip gloss in 802 on top to approximate what you wish biting into a peach would leave your lips like.

For Nidhi, Ingeborg channeled the softest, richest tones of an unpeeled mango fresh off the tree. She layered Surprise from Face Stockholm over melty red cream from the Maqpro Fard palette on her eyes. Then, Ingeborg used the Bright color wheel from Face Stockholm on Nidhi’s cheeks, and Chanel gloss in 784, a translucent fruit punch red, on her lips.

Ingeborg prepped both models’ skin using African Botanics Neroli Infused Marula Oil, and then concealed as needed with IT Cosmetics concealer.

Mads wears a Missoni tie-dye sweater and wool pants, with a hat from Clyde. She also wears Comme Si socks with Brother Vellies mary janes, a Staud bag, and necklaces from Vita Fede and Bauble Bar.

Nidhi wears a purple oxford from Polo Ralph Lauren over a Sandro knit top with Claire McKinney and Sophie Andes Gascon for MNZ jeans. She also wears Brother Vellies linen sneakers and bracelets from Bauble Bar.

Bellinis And Cherries


If Mads’ last look was pure peach, this subtler version is all apricot—less of a commitment, and slightly more monochromatic. Ingeborg used the Dior 5 Couleurs palette in Wild Earth for a warm wash all the way up to her brow bone. It pairs well with the two Laura Mercier products Ingeborg used on Mads' lips: slightly blotted Bellini gloss over Infatuation lipstick. On her cheeks is Laura Mercier Blush Infusion in Grapefruit, with Pat McGrath Skin Fetish Balm for a natural, dewy highlight.

On Nidhi, Ingeborg used Hourglass Opaque Rouge lipstick in Raven topped with Glossier Clear lip gloss for a super shiny, maraschino cherry lip. Maraschino cherries are still fruits, right? It pairs surprisingly well with a bold, mermaid-y eye, achieved with blue and green eyeshadows from the Hipdot Cenote Palette—reflective, in a different way. On Nidhi’s cheeks, Ingeborg used Surratt blush in Cantaloupe and Pat McGrath’s Skin Fetish Balm, too.

On Mads is a Nanuska swim top worn with a Simon Miller flannel and Sandy Liang denim skirt. She also wears necklaces from Simon Miller and Bauble Bar, along with Teva sandals and a COA purse.

On Nidhi, a JoosTricot floral crop top and Polo bermuda shorts peek out under a Sies Marjan vinyl trench. On her feet are Brother Vellies huaraches, and she also wears a bandana from The Quality Mending Co. and Vita Fede earrings.

Berries And Popsicles


On Mads, Ingeborg used the Color and Light palette from Kosas in 8th Muse, a rosy pink blush paired with a champagne cream highlighter, to make Mads look like she spent the day in the sun. To get a ‘just ate a popsicle’ stain effect on Mads’ lips, Ingeborg blended (and blended and blended) Chanel lip liner in Vamp in the center of her mouth, and topped it with the Rouge Allure Liquid Powder in 964. It looks dark at first swipe, but blotted out it turns into a bright raspberry. She kept the eyes simple and glowy, using warm tones from the Ohii palette in Magic Hour with Tom Ford Emotionproof mascara.

Ingeborg lined Nidhi’s eyes with Antonym’s black pencil in the waterline, and Make Up For Ever Either Cherry blended out on the lower lashline. Then, she used red and gold shades from the Ohii Treasure palette. Flesh eye gloss in Fleshpot, flecked with shimmer that flashes gold and pink, is on top. She finished the eyes with Make Up For Ever black mascara. Ingeborg used Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge in Raspberry [Ed note: discontinued, but a good dupe is Laura Mercier Blaze] high on her cheekbones, and dabbed on Tom Ford Soleil Glow Drops as the highlight. On her lips, Nidhi wears super sheer and slightly shimmery Smith and Cult gloss in Blackberry.

Mads wears a Victor Glemaud maxi with a Maje sweater around her waist. She also wears Tevas with socks from Polo Ralph Lauren, and Vita Fede earrings.

Nidhi wears a crochet top from Rachel Comey with a Maje bikini underneath. She wears them with Frame paint splattered jeans, Staud sandals, and a Victor Glemaud beret. Her sunglasses are Vita Fede.

Wearable Candy Apple


For the final look, Ingeborg used one Chanel Essentielle palette for eyes, lips, and cheeks on both models. Mads wears 180, featuring a bright, rosy pink, and Nidhi wears 185, which includes a vibrant orange-red. Warm, bright, and lit-from-within—like a summer sunset from cheek to cheek.

Mads wears a JoosTricot polo dress with Staud gingham mules. She also wears a leather bucket hat from Clyde and COA purse.

On Nidhi is a Solid & Striped bikini worn under a Mulberry knit top. She also wears Levi’s Made & Crafted shorts and carries a Mulberry bag. Her sandals are from Staud.
