Firecracker Color

Plump up your lurid lips with iconic Blue Nectar lipsticks by MAC Cosmetics. My recommendation for July’s summer get-togethers: Barbeque, a matte orange red that complements this month in name and finishing look. I paired the bold lip color with my bronze-shelled African kimono dress to perk up the Western-inspired piece, and that hint of hue amped things up effortlessly.
