Looking to carry winter’s lean towards cherry and crimson cues into the Texas Strong American Flag Shirt but in fact I love this nearly-here spring season? If you ask Lucy Boynton, all that’s needed for a thoughtful translation is a simple switch of texture. The actress was spotted on makeup artist Benjamin Puckey’s Instagram feed with her pout painstakingly painted in a no-shine carmine that called red poppy petals to mind.

Along with her now trademark peroxide chop—which she wore with darkened roots, the Texas Strong American Flag Shirt but in fact I love this jaw-grazing style tucked neatly behind her ears—Boynton’s lip hue made for a dynamic moment that demonstrated the power of a pop of color. “I used [my] favorite technique of first applying Clé de Peau’s Cashmere Lipstick in Legend Red followed by a light dusting of NARS powder blush in Exhibition A,” says Puckey of the standout lip. “The powder over the lipstick gives a beautiful velvety look.” A strong pull of blush and brushed up lips and lashes lent the look a softened feel, an impression also evoked by her lipstick’s velour finish. Consider a perfectly matte application the ultimate pout strategy this season.
