in full bloom

It's not uncommon for exotic plants and flowers to inspire the fashion and make-up industries; the vivid colours and intricate patterns you can find on some of nature's masterpieces are undeniably mesmerising. That's why we love this Vogue Nippon beauty editorial, where they took that relationship to the next level, incorporating orchid overlays on top of the model's flora-inspired make-up. It's a quintessentially summery spread, with a sensual twist, and it's definitely gotten us in the mood for plum, citrus and crimson lipstick shades for the coming season.
