Carey Mulligan’s glossy brown dusted with golden caramel tips isn’t just pretty, it’s decadent. The hues are reminiscent of an artisanal chocolate treat. The warmth of the colors gives them a bit of softness so they accentuate Mulligan’s pale skin without washing her out. The color also matches the tones of her eyes, creating a soft, monochrome effect. Get the formula for this delicious shade in the notes. –– Laura Martin
