NYFW SS12: Bold Lips

As NYFW SS12 is well under way, the world’s fashionists await trends to adorn the catwalks. However, i am more interested in what the makeup artists have to offer!
From the pics i have seen so far, there is a fair bit of bold lipping going on.
Richard Chai‘s blue and purple lips are striking against smooth nude skin, and almost bare eyes. I have seen a few celebs sporting purple lips lately. One to add to the ‘want’ list?

Charlize Theron, recently at the GQ Man of the Year 2011 Awards flashing deep fuchsia – purplish lips combined with an otherwise natural face.

Jason Wu was bold with red at his show. His retro look models wore bright red, matte lips teamed warm cheeks and defined brows, created by MAC. Wu’s collection was inspired by street artist  KAWS and the pop art of the 50’s and 90’s which is reflected in the make up. Makeup artist Diane Kendal, who was leading the MAC team, used a vibrant scarlet red lip colour and covered it over with MAC Neo Orange Powder to achieve the final look.

OPI nails in Monsooner Or Later matched the  red lips
