TOP 10 FALL 2011 BEAUTY TRENDS
Bold colour surfaced in unexpected ways this season: not only on lips and lids but even on brows and hair. At Thakoon, Diane Kendal, consulting artist for NARS, created a brazen sunset-red and orange eye inspired by the collection’s rococo and Masai tribal themes. “I felt if we were going to do ‘colour,’ it would have to be focused on the eye, with one central colour and nothing else,” said Kendal. “Red was a natural choice, complementing the colour throughout the collection.” She applied a red lip pencil across the lid and layered pink, orange and red blush, blended out up to the temples. At Jil Sander, a precise teal cat eye was paired with a bold orange-red lip, while models at Balenciaga wore a swath of cobalt blue across their brows. Multicoloured streaks of teal, burgundy and tomato were interwoven into messy updos at Fendi, giving the hair a rock-chic edge.
