How To Get the Look:

Step 1 - On a freshly-washed, pat-dried face dust on a light layer of Bobbi Brown Bronze Shimmer. You’ll want to then zone in on the cheekbones highlighting them in a darker, but not too dark, hue located toward the bottom of the shimmer brick. Once your skin glows with the perfect dewey shimmer, grab a tissue and move on to step 2.

Step 2- With the tissue remove any shimmer that may have kissed your lips. Now apply the Borghese Lip Treatment Moisturizer. Not only will the moisterizer moisterize and condition your lips, but it will also protect against harmful UV rays.  This moisterizer provides extra hydration and nourishment. 

Step 3- Choose your favorite shade of orange, and begin by first outlining your lower lip. Fill in the rest of the lip and outline the upper lip, here is where you’ll want to choose how to accent your peaks (those two points at the center of your upper lip), some people prefer a soft, rounded look, while others are crazy about making a sharp statement. Once you’ve chosen your accent and finished lining the upper lip, continue filling in the lip until they’re both fully coated and have blossomed with color.

Step 4- This step is optional, it’s for those of you who want to make your lips really pop. By pairing an orange lip with a complementary violet eye, your smile will undoubtedly be the bright focal point. Simply apply your favorite shade of violet, orchid, purple, whatever you will, to your eyes and you’ll see the magic of orange blossom lips spring to life.
