Color Crush…Emerald Green

Happy Monday!  The embodiment of Pre-Fall 2017 fashion and makeup collections can be seen everywhere. It is a continuation of a seaside summer and the crush of green apple color we are happily experiencing.

My inner Virgo embraces the fall season like no other and cannot wait for the calendar to reveal July and August so I can prepare for my favorite time of year.  As the founder and Creative Director of Laini Cosmetics I was eager to house a stunning selection of ready-to-wear color to take you from summer into the fall months to complement fashion’s lush hues of emerald and jade green as seen below in these stunning catwalk to sidewalk interpretations including Alice + Olivia and Paula Hian Designs.

The juxtaposition of my highly pigmented triple-milled eyeshadows (Catalina, Caribbean and Cypress), vanilla infused luscious lipsticks (Vibrate and Flippy) and new liquid velvet lipsticks (Tangelo, Ambroisia, Hell-bent, Garnish and Sassy) are the perfect pairing!

A toast to a season of color!

Wishing you a beautiful, bright and bold week ahead!

With style and gratitude,
