The beauty desk breaks down all you need to create Max Mara’s hot pink runway lip, as modeled by Hailey Clauson.
It may have been the autumn winter runway, but summer’s hottest hue made up the beauty look that had editors and influencers searching for their bright pink lipliners and glosses. Modeled by Hailey Clauson, as well as runway favourites Soo Joo Park and Meghan Roche, the beauty look added a dab of femme fatale energy to Max Mara’s otherwise grunge inspired looks. But take the clean, chiseled skin and maximum impact lip away from the runway and in to real-life, and the eclectic hue is perfect for the summer month’s ahead.
The Hailey Clauson look can be achieved easily with a long lasting matte pink, but the key is in preparation. Reach straight for La Mer for an instant and long lasting fix. Hydrated lips are a must to avoid heavy lipsticks becoming cakey. Colourpop’s Lippie Primer is a cult favourite for prepping lips pre-colour. MAC was the brand tasked backstage with creating Max Mara’s runway look, so we recommend the Pro Long Wear Lip Pencil in More To Love alongside the Mineralise Rich Lipstick in Fuschia. Look to Charlotte Tilbury for expert tools in applying the pink.
Keep skin and eyes clean with a touch of natural highlighter and bronzer. Style with head-to-toe white, black or cream, allowing the focus to fall on the lips.
