Haven’t done the red thing yet? In glassy gloss or creamy satin, and in every shade from almost-orange to crimson, the color was major this season.
THE GLOSSY MOD MOUTH
This orange hue may seem retro, but the shiny finish is futuristic. The result? A trendy lip great for day or night. Makeup artist Tom Pecheux created this look at the Moschino spring fashion show by applying a creamy orange lipstick, then layering a clear gloss on top.
THE PLUSH PUCKER
Who needs injectables? At Prada, makeup artist Pat McGrath exfoliated models’ lips to make them swell up a bit. Next, she lined and filled them in with red pencil, then coated with lipcolor. Final touch: eye crayon traced only along the Cupid’s bow.
SEXY LIP CLEAVAGE
This Kabuki-inspired shape is a flirty twist on the classic red lip, perfect for some daytime drama. Says makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury. She used a lip pencil to draw an extreme heart-shaped lip line that tapers downward before the corners of the mouth, then filled it in with lipstick.
Into compliments? This hot pink lip, spoted at the Dries Van Noten show, should get you plenty. (It’s not for work, though!) To do this look created by makeup artist Peter Philips, first trace lips with a bright pink liner, then use a lip brush to blend a luminous lip color on top.
THE BERRY STAIN
What we love about this wearable color: There’s actually no lipstick. At Jonathan Saunders, makeup artist Lucia Pieroni prepped lips with moisturizing lip balm, which then made it easy to line and fill them in completely with a burgundy lip pencil. Top with a thin coat of clear gloss.
THE POP-ART POUT
Models at Holly Fulton flaunted an old-school 1950s-California look, complete with a neon lip. Makeup artist Andrew Gallimore defined the bow and corners with a bright pink liner. Next, he brushed fuchsia lipstick on the outer edges and dabbed orange lipstick in a heart shape smack in the center.
