Model: Cici Ali @ Ford Models
Lipstick: Nars, Fire Engine Red Matte
The organic assimilation of runway trends into everyday life, with ease and context is the dream that floats inches above the reach of thousands, nary millions of women. And yet? My friends takes this fresh face with crimson pout thing to the next level. With no effort. Like no curled lashes, no contouring, no blush. Cici broke a myriad of life-draining rules spouted by beauty editors that don’t know sh*t and emerged radiant, vacillating between crowned carnival samba queen and urbane elfhood. Twinkling eyes beneath cat-eyed wayfarers, chrome popping against caution yellow nails.
We can attribute her reigning success to flawless bone structure and perfect skin, but that’s the EASY answer. I spotted perfect brows— 8 bucks on 11th st and Avenue A, and smart dressing that borrows from iconic style imagery and clever color pairings to make sense of a ‘night’ lip for the day.
