With lips drenched in eye-popping neon shades of orange and fuchsia on the runways of Jil Sander, Fendi, Marni, Diane von Furstenberg and more, the bright lip look has been taken to a whole new level this spring.
Look#1: Underground Society
An aerodynamically misplaced streak of liner. A lip packed in Pigment or duo-chromatically constructed… a hardass brow. “It’s more of an attempt to project an attitude of individuality and a sense of ownership than about looking gorgeous in any traditional sense,” explains Terry Barber.
Of difference: we’re at a moment in beauty when identikit perfection looks positively passé. Touching on tribal elements with striking originality (Underground Society), taking a couture approach to nude makeup (Pale ‘N’ Dandy), feeling the heat of a carefree, sun-warmed vibe (American Nomad) or getting creative with the murano-glass palette being passed about (Dye-A-Tribe) feels eminently more interesting and appropriate. “The essential point with makeup this season is that it’s about projecting emotion and attitude, about not looking the same as everyone else,” explains Terry Barber.
Ladies, let your inner goth/emo side out this fall/winter because black is back and bigger than ever! From the runway to the latest beauty campaigns, sooty black liner smudged all over the eyes and vampy blackish red lips are everywhere!

At the spring 2010 Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, we are seeing all kinds of nail colors and designs. My favorite are definitely the ones with the rhinestones (if only my nail bed was longer!) What about you ladies?
