A sultry cat eye paired with nude lips is never out of style. Case in point, the “foxy ladies” created by Charlotte Tilbury, lead makeup artist for MAC, on the runway of the Blumarine A/W 2010 show at Milan Fashion Week. Read on for a breakdown of the 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.
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
To go with the black and gold color scheme, models were given an equally luxe look with super dramatic smoky eye and nude lips at the PPQ A/W 2010 show. What I love most about the look is how they blended the crease color all the way into the nose while using a dash of gold on the inner corner to keep the eyes opened up. Can’t wait to dupe this look!
I have always loved Make Up For Ever Alliance team member Lottie for her creative work and at Thuy A/W 2010, she created a fresh, easy-to-dupe look with pale gold eyes and stained red lips to complement the vibrant jewel tones of the collection.
