THE TIP-OFF: INTENSE MAGENTA LIPS BY BITE BEAUTY
Sephora PRO Artist Ilde Goncalves shows us how to get a vibrant look with Bite Beauty.
You can have dirty, disheveled hair and mascara everywhere except for your eyelashes. But if you have a gorgeous lip, you will look impossibly chic and put together. In this how-to, expert beautifier Ilde gives us pointers on achieving the perfect lip. BECKY PEDERSON
STEP ONE Exfoliate with Whipped Cherry Lip Scrub. This will help prevent feathering, plus your lips will look plumped and hydrated.
PRO TIP Ilde suggests letting the scrub sit on your lips for at least two minutes to reap the full benefits.
STEP TWO Apply BB For Lips in Natural directly from the bullet—no lip brush necessary. This acts as a treatment to further hydrate lips.
PRO TIP “If I’m doing full-face makeup on someone,” notes Ilde, “I always prep by moisturizing the lips. I work on the face for about 30 minutes and leave the treatment on the whole time. But before you put on your lipstick, you definitely need to remove the excess product with a tissue or blotting paper—otherwise, the lipstick won’t stick.”
STEP THREE Apply the Luminous Crème Lipstick in Violet. Because this magenta color is intensely vibrant, Ilde applied the first coat with the SEPHORA COLLECTION Pro Lip Brush #81 to see how it looked as a wash. We decided we wanted a brighter lip, so we applied the second coat directly from the bullet.
PRO TIP Ilde says, “You should always harmonize” and match the rest of your makeup to your lips. For this color, use a pinky blush instead of a peach.
STEP FOUR Apply a layer of Lush Fruit Lip Gloss in Mangosteen. Ilde swipes a spot of gloss on the back of his hand and then carefully dips the applicator in, like you would when applying concealer. This method allows for more control over the distribution of the product.
PRO TIP Ilde shares a tip he got from Dany Sanz of Make Up For Ever: “Don’t forget to do the corner of your lips. Women will often forget about the corners, and then your lips look smaller than they actually are.”
STEP FIVE Dab concealer around your lips. Ilde likes to apply Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage with the SEPHORA COLLECTION Pro Precision Concealer Brush #45. Evening out your skintone with concealer will make your lips pop.
PRO TIP “I also like to use shimmering highlighter on the Cupid’s bow. It really enhances the lips, especially for pictures.”

Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPTheGreatIndoors

Weekend Hashtag Project is a series featuring designated themes & hashtags chosen by Instagram’s Community Team. For a chance to be featured on the Instagram blog, follow @instagram and look for a post announcing the weekend’s project every Friday.

The goal this weekend is to take beautiful and creative photos of interior spaces. Some tips to get you started:

  • The make-or-break part of shooting any interior is the light. Shoot when the space is flooded with soft, natural window light and turn off any electric lights you can control.
  • Before you start shooting, take some time to declutter the space. If it’s a room of your own, tidy up and make sure decorations are simply and elegantly arranged. Don’t be afraid to rearrange your home to get the shot you want!
  • For a polished look, pay careful attention to perspective and aim to keep vertical lines parallel. Many mobile phone cameras let you enable a grid when shooting. Turn it on to help you get your lines nice and straight.

PROJECT RULES: Please only add the #WHPTheGreatIndoors hashtag to photos taken over this weekend and only submit your own photographs to the project. Any image taken then tagged over the weekend is eligible to be featured right here Monday morning!

CAMEO: MARC JACOBS X SOFIA COPPOLA TALK DAISY DREAM
The designer and director duo got together in NYC for the launch of the new fragrance Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream.
A huge group of international press convened on New York City’s West Side last month to fête the launch of Marc Jacobs’s new scent, Daisy Dream. The charming, romantic take on the original Daisy perfume is floral and fruity, spiked with notes of blackberry, jasmine, musk, and coconut water (which also is an ingredient in some Marc Jacobs Beauty products). Behind a giant indoor MJ-shaped hedge, Jacobs and his close friend, the filmmaker Sofia Coppola—who directed the TV commercial for the Daisy Dream campaign—discussed all things Daisy. Read on for an excerpt. HOLLY SIEGEL
ON THE DAISY GIRLMARC JACOBS: I think it’s a characteristic that exists in a lot of people, maybe in Sofia. A lot of Sofia’s work and the way she portrays women—there’s a bit of strength, vulnerability, and virility—is in line with the Daisy girl. There’s that Daisy quality, although there’s the dark side perhaps.
ON THE COLLABORATIONSOFIA COPPOLA: I was really happy when Marc said they wanted to create some short film commercials for Daisy Dream. It was great because I had complete freedom to make something pretty that I hoped captured the feeling that Marc wanted to portray. So for me, it was a great pleasure to create something beautiful that I hoped Marc would like. I think because we have similar tastes, it was easy for me … I felt that we like the same kinds of things.
ON THE COMMERCIALSC: I guess because it was Daisy Dream, we wanted it to feel dreamy. Fragrance is so abstract so how you convey it—you know the feeling that you want or the girl—it matters. I do like to think of things as a memory, or an impression.
ON DREAMING IN SCENTMJ: I think that sense, that olfactory sense, does take you somewhere. I mean you always go back to a memory. I think certain things evoke certain places you’ve been … a certain feeling you get. We always talked about this when we were making the fragrance: Does it have this kind of freshness, does it have a sparkle, is there a lightness to it? With Daisy Dream, we wanted to create something that was more ethereal, a sophisticated version of this Daisy girl that we first started making.
