Vera Wang Adds Some Dimension to the Matte Lip Trend

Bold lips and matte finishes are huge for Fall 2013, and the crimson version at Vera Wang was the focal point of the overall beauty look. The hair was left wavy and slight undone, and the nails were a soft gray.

Who would wear it: We can see Florence Welch rocking this look.
Key products: Clé de Peau Extra Rich Lipstick in Mister Lincoln and Tuscany.
Trends: Bold, matte lips.

Makeup: Lucia Pieroni for Clé de Peau Beauté created the bold matte lip using the Extra Rich Lipstick in Mister Lincoln and Tuscany. To add dimension to the look, she used the lighter shade on top of and in the center of the lip. She kept the face bare with a touch of shimmering shadow on the lids, while lashes went mascara-free to let the lips take center stage. Bold brows finished off the palette to balance the intensity of the lipstick.

Hair: "The hair is about texture," said lead stylist Paul Hanlon for Moroccanoil. The hair was left down and ultimately tucked into the clothes before models walked the runway, so Hanlon made sure he brought defined texture to the hair. After wetting the hair and prepping it with Volumizing Mousse, he twisted sections with his hands while he blow-dried. To better frame the face, he went back with a curling iron and finished the look with hair spray for hold.

Nails: Lead manicurist Jin Soon Choi used her JinSoon nail polish in Auspicious. "It's a light gray, but has a hint of lavender for a softer, more elegant touch," Choi said.
