Runway Beauty Trend: Violet Lips at Marchesa S/S 2014

Revlon Global Artistic Director, Gucci Westman,  creates a striking goth-inspired violet lip for the Marchesa Spring/Summer ‘14 Runway Show at New York Fashion Week on Wednesday, September 11, 2013.  She pairs naturally luminous skin with a subtle brown eye and deep purple on the lips.

“Overall the inspiration is gothic romance. It adds toughness to the feminine and enchanting look of the dresses and it plays in well with the body art,” says Westman. “The clothes are so pretty and I wanted to do something to compliment the overall look, but still be unique and a little cheeky.”

“We went with a lavender shade (for nails)  because it’s a cute and feminine color that really matches with everything. It works beautifully with the colors that the collection is made up of,” says celebrity manicurist Jin Soon Choi. “To recreate the look, carefully apply two coats of the lavender polish and then be sure to add a shiny top coat to finish it off. When applying any pastel the most important thing is to take your time so that the color looks even and smooth throughout.”
