New York Fashion Week just packed up, but we’re bookmarking these ace makeup looks to wear this fall -By Parizaad Khan Sethi
The two-toned lip is a surefire way to double dip into your lipstick stash. Red lips are somewhat of a Jason Wu signature, and we loved seeing this season’s interpretation. Wear Bobbi Brown Art Stick in Hot Orange on the top and vamp out the bottom with Estée Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick in Carnal. Or fall back on the classics: M.A.C Lipstick in Russian Red and Ruby Woo on top and bottom, respectively, for times when one is much better than two.
La Perla took bedroom eyes to another level, with this smudgy purple look. We love how effortless this seems, both in visual appeal and execution: rub and smudge Estée Lauder Magic Smoky Powder Eye Shadow Stick in Charred Plum all over your top and bottom lids, to look like you’ve been out partying all night. Bhumika Arora shows us how it’s done.
There seem to be many days of staring into the sunset ahead of us in the fall. Peach-orange-rust eyes are going nowhere; in fact they’re only gaining ground. We love this look on model Archana Akil Kumar at Bibhu Mohapatra. If you don’t have eyeshadow in a shade that pops this hard, Bobbi Brown Blush in Apricot will do the job.
If there’s a coloured smoky eye that tops the list, it’s navy. This colour works on the palest to the darkest skin tones, and brings a modern sexiness to this classic eye look. M.A.C Mineralize Eye Shadow in Blue Flame or M.A.C Spellbinder Shadow in Aphrodisiatic can both be smoked out to create this eye that just won’t quit.
