Fall’s new mod­ern lip is per­fectly im­per­fect.

For­get “In­sta­gram lips,” the all-too-ubiq­ui­tous look com­bin­ing lots of lip liner with matte lip­stick—this sea­son’s trendi­est makeup trend is in­ten­tion­ally un­pol­ished. From Rosie As­soulin to Gi­ambat­tista Valli to Preen, smudged, blurred, and faded lip­stick in an ar­ray of red tones was the star of this fall’s fash­ion shows, mak­ing lived-in pouts en vogue. “Some­times the beauty and moder­nity of a mo­ment is in the im­per­fec­tion,” says makeup artist Val Gar­land, who cre­ated the “just-snogged” lip look for Preen, as well as Gi­ambat­tista Valli’s patchy, high-volt­age gloss.

Gar­land sug­gests first ap­ply­ing your lip color as you nor­mally would, then us­ing a fluffy eye-blend­ing blush (or your fin­gers) to soften the out­line of your lip shape. Try the full cov­er­age Pow­er­matte Lip Pig­ment from NARS ($26; 8412 Mel­rose Ave., West Hol­ly­wood, 310-623-1730; nars.com) and top it with Givenchy’s Gloss Révéla­teur ($32; Bar­neys New York, 9570 Wil­shire Blvd., Bev­erly Hills, 310-2764400; bar­neys.com),a uni­ver­sally shaded lip gloss, at the cen­ter of the lips. Says Gar­land, “This gives you the gloss with­out the messy out­line.”

Art­fully un­kempt: “Some­times the beauty of a mo­ment is in the im­per­fec­tion,” says Val Gar­land, makeup artist be­hind the on-trend lips at Gi­ambat­tista Valli’s Fall run­way show. be­low: Pow­er­matte Lip Pig­ment, $26, at NARS.
