MAC Lorde Makeup Collection

Dark lips has always been a signature look for fall. And this year, the ethereal gothic look was turned up a notch with shades ranging from deep rose, wine stained to dark purples. At Derek Lam, various shades of brown, maroon and burgundy were mixed together to create a saturated stain while Bibhu Mohapatra (top right) paired dark cherry lips with a wet, metallic eye. Taking things to the extreme was Veronique Branquinho (top left), where models donned an ultra sophisticated glossy purple lip, courtesy of red lipstick mixed with purple eyeliner.

For the third season, Estée Lauder sponsored the beauty look at the Anthony Vaccarello Fall 2013 show. “Anthony’s collection is bold, graphic, a strong statement in black and white. I created a monochromatic makeup look with a strong focus on lips, using deep burgundy, and repeated it on lids for moody eyes. This intense pop of color is striking against perfectly matte skin, pale and translucent.” said Tom Pecheux, Estée Lauder Creative Makeup Director.
