Elle UK's August 2012 'Some Like It Hot' editorial definitely spices the style scene up. Model Leah de Wavrin sports a series of color-blocked cosmetics, taking the favored mismatched motif one step further.
Color blocking has become an instant favorite in the fashion world. The unlikely pairing of bright hues is one that instantly commands attention, and for many in the industry, this is a highly sought after effect, if not the only desired effect.
Stylist Natalie Wansbrough-Jones has put yet another twist on the in-your-face style. Stripes of blue and purple eyeshadow are placed next to one another, as are light green and off-white eyeliner. These Some Like It Hot looks push beauty boundaries in an approachable yet avant-garde manner.
