Lips and eyes were painted in rainbow shades. Blue lipstick contrasted with the vibrant prints at Mary Katrantzou, while chartreuse mouths glistened against green rhinestones at Thierry Mugler. For a real-life take on bold colour, the coral pout at Jason Wu had editors swooning. The precisely drawn orange-red lips appeared ladylike at first glance, but a dollop of orange powder in the centre lent a modern edge. Erdem’s imprecise, girlish vermilion lips were “from the night before,” says Andrew Gallimore, consulting makeup artist for M.A.C. He created a kissed-away stain by concentrating colour in the centre of the mouth and blurring the edges with cotton swabs. The colour play continued on eyes. Mod aubergine arcs appeared at Peter Som, turquoise eyeliner popped at Pringle of Scotland and lavender washed over lids at Cacharel. Emanuel Ungaro was a standout for gorgeous colour. “She’s sun-kissed, sexy and slightly sporty,” notes makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury, consulting for M.A.C. The slick indigo eyes were inspired by vacationing girls out for the night in Capri. Tilbury applied creamy blue eyeliner all around eyes before sweeping gloss on lids to create “a fresh, watercolour effect.”
