If you’re in NYC, please join me next Tuesday for some drinking & shopping at Kate Spade in Soho!

In the meantime, have you seen Kate Spade’s new beauty items?  The lip crayon kit is beyond cult.  Everything’s in my wish list - click here or above to stuff your stockings.

I saw the Kate Spade SS12 collection today and it was full of all these sharp, poppy details, which I loved. 
A bright, almost fluorescent coral was woven through one grouping and they brought it into the makeup comme ça above.  I literally ran over afterward and asked them to please bring the girls back out so I could photograph it, and they kindly obliged … Beautiful huh? 
I’d do this with a cream color and an angled brush - I use the one in this set.

Have you guys seen the new Kate Spade film featuring the lovely Greta Eagan of Greta Guide enjoying the city on her Kate Spade bike? It’s a wonderful portrait of Greta featuring a few of the many things she’s known for: eco-conscious rides, devouring Babycakes and … looking amazing.

I fell in love with her lipstick - the most perfect, fresh pink - and the team at Kate Spade were kind enough to share the behind the scenes details…

                

Of course anything this fabulous is a custom blend - the ultimate cult beauty product is one made just for you, right?  Makeup artist Mandy Biseti used MAC Cream Colour Base in Pink Shock and Flaming Fuchsia blended with Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm to create the gorgeous pink. 

The cream colours are only available at MAC pro stores, but the white, red, and fuschia in this Makeup Forever Flash Color Kit ($95) would yield a myriad of custom options. Or maybe I’ll try a muted version of this with one of my faves- MAC Tinted Lip Conditioner in Fuchsia ($14.50).

                 

To complete the look, Mandy used:

Makeup Forever HD foundation ($40) + HD powder ($30)
Cinema Secrets concealer ($21 for palette)
Makeup Forever Liquid Liner ($22)
Mac Cream Colour Base in “Pink Shock” on cheeks - PRO stores only - but you could try Stila Convertible Color in Fuchsia - my favorite cream color for lips/blush ($25)

Do you custom mix your lip colors? I’m definitely inspired to try now!
