Alright. We may only be three days into the spring shows, but we’re going to go ahead and call it: the Statement Lip is here to stay, with the season’s predictable nudes and sheer pastel glosses being replaced by the deep, opulent pouts popular for Fall. Lucia Pieroni’s handiwork backstage at Jason Wu yesterday sealed the deal. In an attempt to recreate a “Tim Burton girl with big, simple sparkling eyes and amazing lips,” Pieroni came up with three different lip shades, each more decadent then the last. Some girls got a shade of wine, which Pieroni painted on using MAC PRO Lipmix in Burgundy, others got a blood red courtesy of MAC Lip Pencil in Brick and Lipstick in Classic Dame, and a lucky few walked the runway sporting a dark plum shade crafted using MAC Lip Pencil in Currant and Lipstick in Media. Pieroni kept the eyes light and more traditionally Spring-like to showcase the lip, patting MAC’s new Crushed Metal Pigment on top of a “soft wash” of taupe-y brown shadows. The combination provided a young sophistication that worked well with Odile Gilbert’s Minnie Mouse inspired chignons. “If you go too much into perfection, you can look a bit old,” Gilbert said as she took sections of hair and spontaneously looped them over a piece of black tulle for what resembled a beautiful, haphazard bow concoction. “Today, it’s about looking cute, funny, and attractive.” Let it be known.
