First Frost

-------

Full disclosure: The words “frosted lipstick” haven’t crossed our lips in decades. The pale, iridescent pigments that were a sixties mainstay experienced a revival in the eighties before becoming relics of times past when dark, opaque brick reds and berry bullets dominated the nineties and clear, shimmering glosses entered the picture in the aughts. But the pearlescent pout perfectors have become a topic of conversation in our lives of late, which we can attribute to two things: a) Fashion loves a throwback, and b) the hard-to-pull-off icy hues happen to look best against summerized skin. Enter Vogue Taiwan’s July issue, which stars a thoroughly bronzed Hanna Wahmer as a retro glamazon with carved-out cheekbones, built-up brows, and lots of lashes, courtesy of makeup artist Tiziana Raimondo. The story caught our eye on a recent glossy run because of the frosted pink lipstick, though, as one of our more stylish friends has been singing the praises of the snowy lip look—Revlon’s SuperLustrous Lipstick in Apricot Fantasy, specifically—for weeks. We’re starting to come around; would you go there?

Pastels, Still In Power

-------


If you take a peruse through our new Year In Beauty feature, you’ll be reminded of the 2011 hair trend that just wouldn’t die: ombre hair streaks. The dip-dying technique has persisted long after we ever thought it would—on the runway, on the red carpet, and even in high-end glossies, which continue to propagate the coloring method on newsstands world wide. The latest streaking session comes courtesy of hairstylist Jean Luc Amarin in this month’s issue of Vogue Taiwan. Rather than go for full-on blocks of pastel lavenders, deep reds, and aquas, Amarin opted for sporadic bursts of color that vary in width and length so the rainbow accents are more of a surprise, rather than an in-your-face statement. Will the style will persist into 2012? All signs point to yes—make that yellow.
