With the rich fabrics & textures of Fall 2008 demanding attention, beauty has resigned to a perceived simplicity. The key to Fall is flawless skin paired with one feature accented. No other feature portrays confidence like a strong lip.
Inspired by the rich color of Oscar De La Renta's Fall 2008 collection, we chose to accent the lips in a vibrant shade of plum. Makeup artist Jeffrey Dwayne used Givenchy’s Rouge Interdit lipstick in Stylish Purple on model Nana, though complimentary shades can be found for other skin tones. We like MAC’s Plumful and Lacome’s Color Design in Curtain Call. Honestly, it’s not about the shade of plum lipstick you wear, but the confidence you exude, a lesson we can all take from Oscar's confident woman.
In this week's Life & Style we are exposed to the best-selling heels right now. I love it when they do this sort of thing, because, well, I love any colorful lineup of fabulous shoes, but I thought some of them were ho-hum. So I went out and put together my own assembly line of some of the most Fabworthy pumps out there, in a range of prices. All you need to accompany these is the perfect LBD and va va voom Hollywood hair and voila: you are a force to be reckoned with.
