The Juiciest Makeup In Season
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.
