LIPS AND TIPS

Hair - - Season’s Best -

When it comes to lip and nail colour, orange is the new red and nude is the mood. Mod­els at Nanette Le­pore, Donna Karan, Prabal Gu­rung, Chris­tian Siriano, Rag & Bone and DKNY sported vi­va­cious hues of cherry orange. At DNKY, make-up artists mixed Maybelline Color Sen­sa­tional Vivids Lip­stick in Elec­tric Orange and Neon Red and then blot­ted it for a slightly matte fin­ish. At DSquared2, make-up artist Char­lotte Til­bury gave the girls su­per-shiny man­darin-- coloured mouths to re­flect the col­lec­tion’s 1950s Hol­ly­wood feel. At Prabal Gu­rung, the red-orange lip was jux­ta­posed with an al­most opales­cent com­plex­ion. Cherag Bam­boatt rec­om­mends dark cherry to stain the lip fol­lowed by a bright lip­stick, “It’s an amaz­ing base to hold colour in place,” he adds. For stand-out fin­ger tips, choose from matt nails, me­tal­lic nails and matt, nude nails. An in­ter­est­ing look that we ab­so­lutely loved was at the NY Fash­ion Week where the French man­i­cure ap­peared with a twist: nail techs used matt and glossy fin­ishes in the same colour in­stead of the white and pink used for a tra­di­tional French mani. Seen at Ni­cholas K and Prabal Gu­rung in black and in­tense yel­low re­spec­tively, it’s a trend to watch out for. Matt nails have also made a come­back in nude as well as solid colours, the for­mer be­ing a lot more in trend, hav­ing been spot­ted at the Vic­to­ria Beck­ham, Proenza Schouler and DSquared2 shows. In colours, yel­low and black made the most ap­pear­ances — from Prabal Gu­rung to Burberry. Me­tal­lic and petrol hues are state­ment-mak­ing and in­trigu­ing. Elie Saab, Nina Ricci, An­tipodium and Sophia Web­ster all used shiny as well as matt me­tal­lic hues to dress up fin­ger­tips.
