Anika Noni Rose Nailed This Perfect Summer Look—Here’s How You Can Too!
Vincent Sandoval

It goes without saying that summer time was made for bold lips and sun-kissed skin. Lucky for us, we’ve got the sun-kissed bit year-round (Thanks, melanin). And if bold lips are that special something that you only pull out when the mercury rises, then Anika Noni Rose’s beauty look at the SAG-AFTRA Foundation Conversations for “Roots” is just for you!

The Tony Award winning actress was a vision on the red carpet sporting matte tangerine-red lips and a slight flush in her cheeks. For an ethereal edge, the actress lightly dusted her lids and the inner corners of her eyes with a metallic steel hue and topped her peepers with a set of feathery falsies.

We love the look for its elegance and sheer simplicity, and if you’re looking for a summer look that’s a little more than just the bare-bones beauty look of dewy skin and balmy lips, this look is definitely a winner. Besides, red lips are the perfect way to up the flirty factor in your beauty look this season!


Here are three products to try to recreate this look:
