carey mulligan

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
