Carefree beauty certainly does not mean sloppy, especially when the mercury rises and our patience for adhering to a makeup routine dips. This month, our Beauty Insider, celebrity makeup artist Kerry Malouf says, “Long live the bohemians who live for and by their art.” Beat movement is modernized with Lauren Moshi’s perfect balance of artistic creativity and vintage shots.”

Inspired by the American fashion journey, Lauren Moshi’s summer collection features gorgeous silhouettes, alluring color and distinctive motifs, all of which are paired unexpectedly to embrace the free spirit present in all women! Designed to encourage people to simply be true to themselves, to go with the flow, and flow with how you go. The line instantly provokes individuality in perfect sync for the season.

Lauren Moshi brought her vision to life with a team that shares her same beliefs and they are equally passionate about their craft. Photographer Kesler Tran, Malouf and hair guru Anton David created colorful, chic pictures that would make Andy Warhol proud. The creativity and fun embody the spirit of the fabulous accessories, which take everyday ordinary to extraordinary. The icing on the cake, though, is the colorful makeup and the feathers.

Malouf said, “To make Lauren ‘pop’ even more, I used MAC’s Dare to Wear summer makeup collection. It’s full of vibrant yellows, serene blues, true corals and feisty fuchsias that will take your look and summer to the next level. Lady Gaga, eat your heart out.” Malouf pointed out that this summer set is “geared towards the woman who does not play by the rules but instead makes her own! She is a muse, a free spirit who believes the only place drama belongs is in her makeup. A girl who dares to rock a matte orange lip with a blue eye, or flushed red lip. She dances to the beat of her own drum, she takes chances, she is bold, and she most certainly lives her life in living color.” Amen, sister! Summer makeup is about taking chances with colors as bright as the sun at noon!
