Catwalk Trends: Make up & Purple

Catwalk Trends: Make up & Purple

Before the news from the current fashion weeks eclipses previous seasons, my two favourite key make up looks from last season's catwalk were the bold brows on the blonde girls at Chanel Spring/Summer 2009:

And Zac Posen's icy violet lips on ice blond and clear, pale skin at his Spring/Summer 09 collection. Playing with purple lips is such a great way of updating a look and giving a classic, clean face a modern update:

Purple is still going to be big player looking at the Autumn/ Winter 2009 collections, as seen at New York Fashion Week with (from left-right) Jill Stuart highlighting violets and lilac throughout her (stunning) collection, J Mendel using rich plum shades, gorgeous smoky lilacs at Max Azria and Lela Rose opting for bluish indigo.
