Missoni - Spring 2010 beauty

I don't quite know why, but I love this.

I think it has something to do with the coral lips—see? more of the bright lips/bare face I keep ranting on about like a mad woman—and the shockingly white-blonde hair.

I happen to adore coral everything, by the way. I know it's not particularly in style, but I tend to wear it on my toes all year long, not just in the summertime. (My favourite shade? Embarrassingly, it's Elodie from Zoya's Hills collection. Remember poor Elodie? She was Heidi's ex-coworker at Bolthouse and had the BEST line to Heidi: "You don't even know what's wrong or what's right anymore... it's so SAD." YES!)

But we were talking about lips, weren't we? And I know just the shade of lipstick: it's by Cargo, and it's called Evangeline (after Evangeline Lilly, I believe).


And you know what? I didn't even do any research to find that shade for you—I just KNEW. Sadly, that's one of the side, er, benefits of having worked as a beauty editor. My brain COULD be filled with more important bits of knowledge, like how to split a dinner bill, or the plots in the complete works of Shakespeare or something. But no. I have an encyclopedia-like memory for lipstick. GREAT.
