It is certain that after shoes the best accessories a woman can have are their lips and how well they use it ( if u know what I mean).It is proven fact that in Egypt and the most famous Cleopatra used to put red lipstick on her sexual oriented power; in ancient Greece mostly the prostitutes use red tint in their lips, to provoke men all over town, but as time pass, the trend became elite for the women's of the era.
In the silent era superstars enhance their lips w dark colors to make notable their almost mimic expressions to on screen appearances ; in the 40's recession women put their makeup on to bust their ego in difficult times. In the 50's and 60's we saw the power in our self to bust the yummy red lips to enhance our woman sex appeal.
Today we expressed our feelings and moods with a simple touch, with the combination of great outfit and a oh so yummy lipstick, we achieve the look we love and enjoy.
In this spring-summer 09 the designers presented a no makeup- makeup, that involved nude color lipstick and simple clean makeup, to enhance the natural beauty. On the other hand for fall 09 designers like Alexander McQueen, John Galliano, Betsie Johnson, and much more, presented their dramatic trend in a sour note and not so ready to wear dark lipsticks. Seemed to reflect the time we are experiencing with the world recession and most of all in the fashion industry.
So if u are fashion forward this is the trend to do, and for my point of view its is oh so delicious to experiment and find our inner little girl to play with make up.
p.s.Just remember that when using this trend keep the eye makeup very subtle, so we can admire the beauty in u in this dramatic look.
