With all of us highly obsessed with what’s going on in Milan right now (feathers in the hair at Gucci and 60s inspired chignons at Ferretti) we’ve nearly forgotten that spring is around the corner and we need to stock up on our spring makeup, like now. Luckily, I always have makeup counters floating in my head (literally, I don’t sleep at night I just dream of new makeup products…it’s a problem) so I’ve decided to let you in on what lip shades I’m excited about for the warmer months. We’ll be seeing a lot of coral, fuchsias and nudes, along with your classic red.
Below are some top picks to pull off the spring colors – let us know which one you can’t wait to be trying out this season!
