Before Lip Smackers, before Dr. Pepper ChapStick, there was the simple cherry Popsicle: your first “lipstick” on hot, summer beach days. Depending on the flavor, Popsicles stained your lips that perfect tint — slightly rosy without being too glossy. Now that you’re an adult, though, that flush is hard to find, unless it’s on the cover of a men’s magazine. But Brigitte Reiss-Andersen, makeup artist to the likes of Karlie Kloss and Gisele Bündchen, assured us that the I-just-ate-a-Popsicle look is actually easy to re-create.
The look, she explains, involves “a reddish flush without shine that looks natural and tinted. It’s color, but no texture.” Her favorite product for achieving the look is “Moroccan lipstick,” a little piece of clay that’s a pain to find. But — in the interest of letting you in on things you can actually buy — Reiss-Andersen shared with us her favorite (mainstream) products to get that cherry-Popsicle lip flush.
