We’re Crushing on Ashlee Simpson
Ashlee Simpson hasn’t let Nemo slow her down at New York Fashion Week. The “Pieces of Me” singer and actress braved the oncoming snowstorm to sit front row at Richard Chai Love, Rebecca Minkoff and Nicole Miller in a range of beauty looks that had many, including us, taking note.
This look with the bold orange lip was one of our favorites. While it can be difficult to wear both a bold lip and eye, Simpson pulls it off without a hitch. “We wanted to go with a modern twist of the ’20s look—dark smoky eyes with bold lips—but to add a modern and more rad spin to it,” says Nick Barose, the makeup artist behind the combination. Barose said the look was a result of Giorgio Armani Maestro Foundation, Ramy Perfect Brow Wand, Chanel Duo Eyeshadow in 37 Sables, YSL Waterproof Eye Pencil in Patent Leather, Maybelline Volum’ Express Mascara, Votre Vu Vu on Rouge in French Tulip, Lancôme Le Crayon Lip Contour in Coral and MAC Lipstick in Morange.
“Bold orange is an interesting color for lips,” Barose says. “It’s less expected than red and it’s glam, but still quirky and fun.” And that is the perfect description of where Simpson is with her style these days. She has tried out punky black roots, sexy flaxen waves and a straight auburn mane, but this latest transformation has us finally seeing a super style star in the making.
