One of my favourite things to do during the FWs (fashion weeks) is peruse the web for runway beauty trends. What is more inspiring than the world’s top designers, makeup artists and models (and all the other wonderful people involved in putting together a show) coming together for the ultimate showcase? Nothing! Nothing is more inspiring. Nothing. While exploring NYFW posts, I came across a couple posts about the look at Rag & Bone’s NYFW Spring 2014 Runway Show. It consisted of a bright, matte, orange lip look with a clean, fresh, almost nude looking face. This allowed the bold lip to be the centre of attention which it sure was!

The look was created using Revlon ColourBurst Matte Balm in Mischievous (available now) and Revlon SuperLustrous Lipstick in Carnival (available Spring 2014). Since Canada is always slow to get new drugstore items, I needed something to hold me over for the time being. So, I went through my stash to find a couple products that could help recreate the look and this is what I found.
1. Giorgio Armani Lip Maestro in 300
2. Maybelline Colour Sensational Vivids Lipstick in Electric Orange
3. L’oreal Colour Caresse Shine Stain in Coral Tattoo

While conducting this search, I realized that I do not own many orange lip products. Obviously, this has to change!! *adds MAC Morange Lipstick and Orange Lipmix to wish list*
Also, I wanted to mention that the MAC Cosmetics Facebook page posts lots of photos from shows where MAC was in charge of the makeup look. They are quite good at responding to comments about what was used so needless to say, my MAC wish list is now 2 pages longer. I literally spent a couple hours going through all their photos, drooling and lusting over all the looks and making notes on how to replicate them. Check it out for inspiration!
