Red Lips Live On !!!!!!

It seems as if everywhere you turned during Fall 2010 New York Fashion Week RED lips were the look. From Velvety textured, to subtle, to FIRE-engine Red. As said by Make up Artist Val Garland backstage at Monique Lhuillier " Red Lips Live On "

Make Up Station

Lead Artist Val Garland explained the inspiration/look for the show to me as -
Breakfast at Tiffany's Brow ( the Brows were extended from the highest arch to capture that Audrey Hepburn-esque essence) , glossy 20's bare lid, no blush - BUT ton's of highlighter to achieve porcelain skin a la "film noir". Last but not least, a lolita lip - my favorite part of the look, which was achieved with lip mix on the lips, with the application of a powder blush to Matte the lip out completely . Garlands forecast for Fall 2010 - "Red Lips Live On ( I love this quote!) , Graphic Eyes ( lots of colors ) , Lots of Liner, Lots of Lash "

A Close up view of the products of the hour- M.A.C. Pro Lip Mix in "Crimson" along with M.A.C. Pro Powder Blush in "Apple Red" , Highlighter - which was in heavy use for the show as well .


Val Garland extending the brows : think "Audrey Hepburn"

Applying the Apple Red Powder Blush to give the lips that pure "Velvet" texture.
