VIOLET TV:

THE NEW
SUMMER LIPS

Shades of sheer berry and seductive scarlet lend a colorful vibe to lips for the season — and all those Zoom calls. CHANEL makeup artist Nina Park delivers her step-by-step.

In the face of all-day athleisure wear and no-makeup beauty routines, there’s a lot to be said for the I-made-an-effort impression that a simple slick of lipstick provides. Lip color, the ultimate one-hit wonder (no sidekicks required here), remains an audacious, unapologetic decision that demands to be seen. It commands attention and makes one look — and feel — alive, says CHANEL makeup artist Nina Park, who gravitates towards just-bitten stains and high-wattage glosses this time of year. If you’re up for a makeup adventure, of the easiest kind, watch her create a few of-the-moment lip looks below. Imagine if you gave one (or both!) a try. How amazing you might feel thanks to one delightful swipe. So much so that it might just become your new normal.
