This winter, eyes and lips glisten with the freshness of cool frost. Glossy looks are the rage throughout the runways. At Antonio Berardi, a coat of wet gleam evokes a sense of exclusive luxury. Red, lacquered lips against porcelain skin, creates a strong graphic impact. Hair is kept simple and parted in the middle.
Upscale and elite, the look is a nod to the slick, provocative world of fashion photographer Guy Bourdin. His elaborate scenarios, bold compositions, and perfectly painted women defined the glamour of the 1970’s and 1980’s. Hair takes a minimalist path with long, straight hair - an ideal complement to the simple, monastic clothing emerging this season.
So for your next holiday event, think glossy – for everything from eyes and lips to hair. Leave the cheeks dry though, and use a powder blush to create an interesting matte and shine contrast. Let red be the main color attraction and keep the rest discreet. The result is just pure sophistication.
Do you love this glossy beauty trend? Here's how to get the look.
