ELEC­TRIC CUR­RANT

It is the sea­son for deep crim­son, but there’s more than one way to do a dark lip

ELLE (Malaysia) - - RADAR TREND -

Back­stage at Gi­ambat­tista Valli this sea­son was a con­struc­tion site, as makeup artist Val Gar­land and her M.A.C team built a bold bur­gundy lip on mod­els, af­ter prep­ping them with mir­ror-shine ra­di­ant skin and glossy brows. They started by colour­ing in the mouth with a bur­gundy lip pen­cil, keep­ing edges feath­ery and blurred, and then pressed in a cus­tom mix of M.A.C Retro Matte Liq­uid Lip­color in Car­niv­o­rous, Dance With Me and High Drama. The fi­nal touch was a lac­quer of clear Lip­glass for a fash­ion take on some­thing faintly vam­piric, or, as Val de­scribed it: “nat­u­ral, hot, sexy and sweaty”.

As the sea­sons deepen typ­i­cally so does the makeup, but some of the back­stage moves felt es­pe­cially fresh this Au­tumn/Win­ter. Take Jour/Né, where lips were vel­veteen, and no spe­cial­ist prod­ucts re­quired. A blend of creamy reds was sim­ply dusted with pow­der blushes in a dusky orange and am­ber brown. Yes, you can try this at home. It doesn’t all have to be goth city, ei­ther. Erin Fether­ston’s ro­man­tic girl gang had nude lip liner ap­plied all over their lips, care­fully avoid­ing the edges, and then a wine lip­stick lightly tapped into the mid­dle of the lips. The re­sult: a win­try pout we can eas­ily fake for a mood shift in any heat­wave.
