Roguishly dark and exquisitely glossed, they act as a raven anchor to her smoldering nude eye, and punctuate the fact that the statement lip is sticking.
A mainstay on the Fall 2010 runways, deep purple lips stood out on the Dolce & Gabbana, Peter Som, Proenza Schouler (who's also featuring dark lips in their Fall ad campaign) and Doo.ri fashion shows. It's a racy, heart-pumping and fiercely feminine trend that stands in welcome rebellion to the neutral, sculpted face we saw at many other top shows.
For the lips, McGrath dipped into Dolce & Gabbana's fall "Evocative Beauty" collection. She achieved the deep purple glisten courtesy of Classic Cream Lipstick in Amethyst with Ultra-Shine Lipgloss in Amethyst layered on top for extra shine. The nails match thanks to Intense Nail lacquer in Dahlia.
"We wanted to discover a look that truly reflects our 'story' from the very beginning- yet truly reflects our reverence for today's women, epitomized, of course by the divine Scarlett," says Stefano Gabbana.
"It addresses what's so ineffable about a woman -- her fierce sensuality anchored by her innermost femininity," adds Domenico Dolce.
Dark lipstick certainly does anchor a look. For more on this trend, plus more of Fall's hottest looks, check out our roundup of Fall 2010 beauty trends.
