Bright pops of color were all over the faces on the runways at the Spring fashion shows, either on the eyes or lips – but never both.
For example, the models in Jason Wu’s Spring 2011 runway show wore a rainbow of eyeshadow shades.
Here, actor Emily Blunt opts for a more wearable pale blue-gray, which complements her bare, pink lips. ColorOn’s Grace, Finesse, and Charm from the Eye Envy Rhapsody in Grey variety kit will give you the same color-washed lids.
From Fendi to Gucci to Jil Sander, bright lips everywhere in every shade.
Oranges, reds, and pinks were all popular, but this pretty fuchsia on Natalie Portman is wearable on a daily basis and appropriate for work. If you’re opting for a bold mouth, your eye makeup should be subtle – think colorOn’s Ibiza, 14-Karat, Pink Lemonade, or Platinum & Pearls.
Both of these runway trends are easily adapted to your workaday wardrobe of looks. They’re polished and professional, yet still allow your personality to shine through.
