The Four Faces of Fall Beauty
Fall 2012 Beauty Trends: Goth
THE GOTH ROMANTIC
Sleepy Hollow was in the air—complexions were paler, lips were deeper and silky strands floated like ghostly apparitions. “My little tendrils soften the effect,” says Redken creative consultant Guido Palau about his “creepy” wisps at Marc Jacobs—the only trace of hair to be seen beneath ginormous fur hats by Stephen Jones. Fall’s makeup mood was equally sinister-slash-sexy—marked by blackened-burgundy lips at shows such as Gucci, where CoverGirl global creative design director Pat McGrath dubbed the trend “dark romance.” Consulting for M.A.C, Tom Pecheux had Tim Burton by way of Gustav Klimt in mind at Badgley Mischka: Bordeaux eyes and lips contrasted stark, blush-free skin. “The look is very preciousbut twisted,” says Pecheux. A gold streak under eyes kept girls looking more gorgeous than garish.
