The Secret to...Boardwalk Empire Lips by Maura Lynch, Beauty Detective

Macall B. Polay

I felt like I needed therapy after watching last night’s episode of Boardwalk Empire. It was so unsettling (here’s a recap for those interested). But despite all the insanity, the thing that’s remained bright and beautiful throughout is Margaret’s lipcolor. It’s just the perfect, not-too-bold, sheer red. 

So naturally, I hunted down the makeup artist (like Jimmy no doubt will be doing next week with Manny Horvitz) and begged her for the formula! And here it is, straight from lead makeup artist for the show, Michele Paris: Chanel Rouge Coco in Gabrielle, Revlon Color Burst in Raspberry and Just Bitten in Frenzy, and Shu Uemura Supreme Shine in RD 185. I'm totally wearing one (or all) of these at the Lucky staff holiday party this week.
