The “Blackened Nude” Lip Will Be Your New Favorite Look This Fall
All this week, the Couture shows in Paris have been showing surprisingly wearable beauty looks that are just statement-y enough while still being real world adaptable (silver eyeliner, anyone?). At yesterday’s Giorgio Armani Privé show, the brand’s international makeup artist Linda Cantello continued the theme with a black and white monochromatic look. In her words, “Pale, natural skin, with elongated and blackened eyes give an air of mystery, finished by a transparent blackened nude lip.” And it’s that lip color in particular that’s about to become our late summer/early fall staple.
Cantello created the blackberry-colored stain by mixing Giorgio Armani Rouge Ecstasy Lipstick in shade 201 (a deep rosy nude) with inky eye makeup — the brand’s new-for-fall Eye & Brow Maestro in shade 1 (Jet Black). The color is an easier to pull off spin on the ‘90s-inspired dark lipstick trend we’ve been seeing since last winter, which shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon.
