WELL RED

Elle (Canada) - - Beauty -

“It’s a slightly car­toony lip,” said Dick Page of the strik­ing red mouth at the Acne Stu­dio show in Paris. Page, Shi­seido’s long- run­ning artis­tic di­rec­tor of makeup, cus­tom mixed the rich cherry colour us­ing the brand’s Per­fect Rouge Lip­stick in Dragon Red and a bright-red lab sam­ple. Red, from carmine to crim­son, was ubiq­ui­tous on the spring run­ways and had an edgy feel to its ap­pli­ca­tion. McGrath, global cre­ative de­sign di­rec­tor for CoverGirl, cre­ated “back-lit” lips at Miu Miu us­ing a bur­gundy pen­cil and poppy lip­stick. Her in­spi­ra­tion? The English street girls of the ’70s with a tough at­ti­tude.
