As we shed our tie-dye co-ords and slip into something a little less slouchy for our grand
entrance into the outside world, we’re whipping out our brightest and boldest palettes to create
high-energy, mood-boosting looks to rock over focaccia-filled picnics and rigatoni alla vodka

applied to the brow bone, cheek bones, and to any other high points of your face. Not to take
away from the eye, Isabella goes soft and subtle on the lips, using Laura Mercier’s Rouge
Essentiel Silky Crème Lipstick in the shade L’Orange on her lips (patted in with her
finger) as a velvety lip stain.
