Cre­ative choices

Hong Kong Tatler - - Style -

Don’t be afraid to experiment with strong, sat­u­rated colours—they will lift the com­plex­ion. Priscilla Yu, makeup stylist at NARS, sug­gests wear­ing shades of pur­ple that con­trast beau­ti­fully with yel­low un­der­tones such as Char­lotte Au­da­cious by NARS, Color Riche RW513 by L’oréal and Rouge Un­lim­ited in BK099 by Shu Ue­mura.

Dig out a deep bur­gundy such as Lip­stick Queen’s Pos­sessed Sheer in Bête Noire for a sul­try chic fin­ish. For a great all-rounder, look no fur­ther than Tom Ford Beauty’s Black Dahlia—a long-last­ing cool bur­gundy with strong red tones. With its semi-matte fin­ish, this lit­tle gem will brighten the skin while sub­tly scream­ing so­phis­ti­ca­tion.

If you’re dar­ing enough to wear a very dark pur­ple or black lip, it’s im­por­tant to en­hance bone struc­ture and cheek con­tour­ing for a di­men­sional fin­ish, rec­om­mends Gabe Ku, se­nior make-up artist at Shu Ue­mura. Just be sure to avoid shades of brown, as they can make the skin ap­pear sal­low.
