STATEMENT LIPS RETURN FOR SPRING

While it may be too early to call it a bonafide beauty trend, the statement lip seems to be making a welcome return for Spring 2011. Bright fuchsia and orange mouths amidst an otherwise mostly bare face were painted on models at both the Diane Von Furstenberg and Erin Fetherston runway shows respectively today. Call it a comeback: lips in vivid, colour-pop hues were big for Spring 2010, so it makes sense that this bold yet minimalist beauty look would return this season. This time out, the finish was decidedly matte. At Fetherston, MAC artist Lucia Pica created an opaque, almost chalky look that delivered maximum pigment impact. Get the effect at home by blotting lips with tissue and dabbing on powder to cancel out shine.
