Sparkle Glow Electric lips


Wear a highly reflective gaze
The gorgeous glittering eyelids seen at Prada and Chanel inspired a need to wear metallic sparkle off the runway, too. Brush on silver or gold eyeshadow up to your crease and keep it spring-fresh with sheer foundation, pale pink blush and low-key lips. Trust us, you’ll look stunning day and night.

Get glowing with 100-watt blush
We were immediately smitten with the notice-me pink cheeks seen at Anna Sui. After last fall’s dark, goth sensibilities, it’s a joy to look bright and pretty again. Team a powder foundation with a powder blush or a cream foundation with cream blush to score the best blend-ability. Blessed with perfect skin? Smooth a cream or mousse blush straight onto your cheeks.

FLARE’s picks: Express Compact Foundation in Porcelain Beige, $42, Compact Powder Blush in Rose, $33, and Instant Light Lip Perfector in Apricot Shimmer, $20. All by Clarins. Jacket, Arthur Mendonça.

Stand out with an electric pout
Talk about a bright future. Marc by Marc Jacobs, Peter Som, Diane von Furstenberg, Proenza Schouler – the savviest of New York labels were compelled to show juicy pop-art shades on model puckers. To look du jour, choose a matte or low-shimmer lipstick versus a far-too-shiny vinyl lip gloss.

FLARE’s picks: Color Design Lipcolor in Studded, $25, Color Design Eye in Makeover, $20, and L’Extrême Instant Extensions Lengthening Mascara in Black, $29. All by Lancôme. Jacket, Andy Thê-Anh.
