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!

How To Wear Fuchsia

On The Lips
The easiest way to make a statement with fuchsia is to wear it on the lips. Pair it with a clean face and muted eye makeup for a natural, feminine look like models did at the Diane von Furstenberg Spring 2007 show or dial up the drama with smoky eyes like I did on the right.
