Dark mat­ter

ELLE (Canada) - - Beauty -

If a bold lip felt OTT for spring, the fall run­ways make a com­pelling case to try one now. Rich hues in near-black oxblood (Ro­darte, Louis Vuit­ton), blue (Ohne Ti­tel) and even black (Vivienne West­wood) were front and cen­tre. “Lips are a point of power,” says Pat McGrath, cre­ative de­sign di­rec­tor for P&G Beauty, who did the black lip at Fenty x Puma. These su­per-sat­u­rated colours play well with li­pliner; dif­fused shades make less of an im­pact. Pre­fer an up­town it­er­a­tion of this trend? Swipe a layer of gloss over­top, which is what Peter Philips, cre­ative and im­age di­rec­tor for Chris­tian Dior Makeup, did at Dior. h
