The two-tone lip first made its debut on the runway at the Emanuel Ungaro A/W 2009 RTW show where beauty guru Tom Pecheux used an orange lipstick (MAC Morange) on the upper lip and a dark fuchsia (MAC Violette) on the lower.
This year, a similar look was created by MAC for the Nanette Lepore A/W 2009 show. Lip Pencil in Magenta and a new lipstick launching this fall topped the upper lip while the lower lip was painted with Lip Pencil in Burgundy, Lipstick in Odyssey and Pro Lipstick in Charred Red.
I personally think the look is cute but it’s definitely not for everyday. Depending on the colors you use, it can also be a great look for spring. Read on to see my take on it!
Emanuel Ungaro A/W 2009 and Nanette Lepore A/W 2010
Here is me wearing MAC Morange Lipstick on top with MAC Show Orchid Lipstick on the bottom.
And here is a twist on the look with MAC Lavender Whip (a light lavender) on top and MAC Impassioned Lipstick (a fuchsia) on the bottom.
Do you guys like the look? Will you be rocking it this spring/fall?
