Sophisticated Lıp Colour
There are myriad hues to play with this year, with bright reds, deep espressos, and even cobalt blues and emerald greens walking down the runways. So you can truly pick a colour, any colour. The finish, however, is more focused: Look for a lipstick (rather than a gloss or a balm) in a matte or velvet. “These have more pigment and impact, which makes them perfect for fall’s refined and structured styles,” says Kristy Noga, Givenchy’s national makeup artist. You’ll find the latest offerings to be surprisingly lightweight and more moisturizing than a classic matte lipstick. “Liquid hydrators and blurring pigments added to the formulas create a fresh feeling and a smooth result,” Noga says. You’ll find them in two types of formulas. The first, a liquid lipstick (like YSL Beauty Tatouage Couture, RM148.50, yslbeauty.com. my), looks and glides on like lip gloss, but there is a method: You should not press your lips together after you swipe on the colour. You want to apply, then let them dry, so the tint and finish can set properly, Noga says. Your second option is a lipstick bullet, which can go on straight from the tube and then be blotted with a tissue. “Sometimes I also soften the edges of the lip with a clean finger,” Noga says. “The blurred lines create a stained effect that looks romantic and modern.”
