The ladies in this week’s roundup proved that sometimes all it takes is one pop of bold color to create a beauty look that is simply stunning. That burst can dress up lips, as it did in pink on Andrea Riseborough and Rooney Mara. It can also embellish eyes. Elle Fanning reached for a robins egg blue to playfully coat lids, and Tali Lennox made a statement in plum. Kerry Washington explored the effect in fashion, with a vibrant mint green skirt that looked perfect paired with her neutral makeup.
