Beauty Inspiration: Berry Lips for Fall 2012

August 22, 2012

Dramatic and deep, these lovely berry toned lips always look glamorous when paired with Fall favorites such as prim laces and bright golds. Make-up artist Francelle Daly, adds “Young celebrities like Jessica Biel and Jessica Alba are wearing it,” she adds. “A deep lip provides a punch with miminal other makeup.” a look that make-up arist Lucia Pieroni describes as “sexy, sultry, decadent and a little bit dangerous.” . . .


↑ At Gucci Fall 2012 makeup artist Pat McGrath gave the models a dramatic bordeaux lip color that she called “ethereal, but dark and strong.” Suggestions: I’d try MAC lipstick in Diva and MAC lipstick in Media blended together.


↑ Bottega Veneta Fall 2012 makeup artist Pat McGrath used a rich mulberry lip that was beautiful and truly attention-grabbing. Suggestions: I’d line with MAC Nightmoth Lip Pencil and then use MAC lipstick in Smoked Purple layered on top.


↑ At Rochas Fall 2012 makeup artist Lucia Pieroni went with a really strong blackberry lip “we’re making it very matted-out; it’s quite ‘stamped on’ in a modern kind of way.” Suggestions: Pieroni used a new Clé de Peau lipstick coming out in the fall, called R10.

    I love this trend, too. Already found my perfect berry lipstick, although I have been wearing it for a while, before the colour became “the trend”. :)

    This is too funny! I was buying some lipsticks, and was given one in this very shade! So happy to wear it this Autumn, and thank you for the inspiration :) xx

    I like this rich, gorgeous shade for fall. Will certainly wear it and seeing it paired with those beautiful kitted and green sweaters at Rochas make me covet it even more. :)
