FOTD: Two-Tone Lip Makeup Look

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 – again by MAC.

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!
