Giving It Your Berry Best For Fall
As readers of this blog already know, a good red lipstick has become a must-have for your fall makeup bag, and the classic pout color is continuing its catwalk run in Milan with recent appearances at Dsquared², Just Cavalli, Dolce & Gabbana, Pollini, Moschino, and Versus. But if you’re looking for something a bit darker next season—in both hue and emotional affect—deep berry stains are picking up acolytes on both sides of the Atlantic as well. In New York, it was Tom Pecheux who set the bar at Peter Som, using a MAC Lip Pencil in Currant, which he topped with its burgundy lipstick in Kittenish and held in place with a few mattefying dabs of its Mineralize Eye Shadow Duo in My Dark Magic. The idea was “uptown with Woodstock on the mind,” Pecheux said of the good-girl-gone-bad color scheme. In London, makeup artist Gucci Westman went for a similar vibe at Antonio Berardi, where she topped Revlon’s Colorburst Lipsticks in Grape and Plum with a dark brown eyeliner for depth. The shade may have been at its best at Missoni yesterday, though, where Lucia Pieroni mixed MAC lipsticks in Cyber and Hang-Up for a rich purple that she made even darker by precisely blending a black eyebrow pencil around the lip line. The color has head-to-toe appeal, too; the mani/pedi-minded among you might be interested to know that that delectable wine-stained polish that was peeking out of those Louboutin gladiator sandals at The Row was courtesy of Lancôme’s Le Vernis in Untamed Plum.
