The Magic Of Going Muted
We’ve been charting the rise of the “un-lipstick” here at Beauty Counter for a little while now. While the allure of a bold, opaque pout perfector is undeniable, sheer, less in-your-face colors have been cropping up with frequency over the last few months, making a case for understated glamour in the process. So it was only a matter of time before the trend began to appear on the red carpet. Kate Bosworth has had her fair share of big lipstick moments—her powdery pink, Jil Sander Spring 2011 runway reprisal immediately comes to mind, although her recent crimson turn at Sundance in January was equally noteworthy—but for last night’s premiere of Life Happens, the actress chose a toned-down shade of muted rose that managed to merely enhance her natural mouth color without completely overtaking her beaded, pale yellow Prada halter dress. It was a winning combination for Bosworth, who rarely makes a fashion or makeup misstep. Don’t you agree?
