Color Crush: Cheery Cherry

Not that we need a reason to crush on the vibrant red hue of cherries, but in case you haven’t heard, February is National Cherry Month! In honor of this very cheery celebration, we’re showcasing our fave cherry-inspired accessories and, of course, makeup! Check out our ‘cherry pickings’ and be sure to indulge in a few tasty, tart (or sweet) slices of all-American cherry pie. Pretty please, with a cherry on top?

Ravishing Red Accents

We know it’s only February, but we’re already looking forward to the sweet retreat of warm weather and lounging poolside with an ice-cold cherry pop cocktail. Until then, throw on your retro Anthropologie Cherry Ice Sunglasses and classic red Keds with a modern twist.

 

And nothing says cool like a boho-chic fedora — that’s why we’re lovin’ this Sole Society Wide Brim Wool Fedora. It’s the perfect pop of color to add to your distressed jeans and white tee ensemble. If you reaalllyy want the world to know of your love affair with sweet, sweet cherries, wear them — literally (but not really)! We mean wear them in the form of a ShopBop Santi Cherry Clutch because it doesn’t get any sweeter than this ... plus, you can stash your classic cherry makeup inside!

Classic Cherry Beauty

Cherry-colored lips are the perfect complement to your daytime OR nighttime look, and we’re in lipstick love with Giorgio Armani Rouge Ecstasy in Teatro.   

And while we’re at it, let’s go all cherry-red everything! Land perfectly flushed sweet cheeks with the YSL Kiss and Blush in Rouge Libertine, a multi-purpose whipped mousse that also highlights your pretty pout. When it comes to your gleaming eyes, forget the typical smoldering shadow and go for a bright smoky eye with Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Woodstock. Then, top it all off with a glossy, sheer-red nail polish look using essie in Cherry Pop

Just don’t wear them ALL at the same time because while may love cherries, we don’t want your face to look like one!

What’s your fave very-cherry inspired beauty look? Let us know in the comments below!
