Not quite pink, but more intense than the traditional nude, the cantaloupe-hued lipstick Kate Mara wore to the Kate Young for Target launch amped up her natural lip color without overshadowing her delicate silver eye. “A warm-toned melon lip is a great way to warm up fair skin and add an understated pop of color to the face,” said Mara’s makeup artist Nick Barose, who used the NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Lodhi. “I used an orangey tint on her cheeks, then matched it with a jumbo lip pencil that creates a fresh sheen on the lips.” The user-friendly stylo makes applying the color as easy as signing your name, and the versatile hue pairs well with both smoky eyes and minimal makeup alike.
