I was terrible at drawing inside the lines..

Even though we see coming out of fashion weeks for Spring/Summer 2011 bright, block colours- a look  that I constantly see popping up and am inspired by is the 'goth' lip.

Paris Fashion Week Spring 2011 Beauty Trend: YSL

Yves Saint Laurent spring/summer 2011

Interpreted in all matter of ways- you can go strong or you could go soft; you can go matte or you can go glossy; you could go lined or you could go soft edged. In any way- a dark gothy lip asks many things of us- one being: can you pull off this sexy number?

MAC recommendations are:

- Diva (a beautiful deep burgandy colour)
- Rebel (mixing the brighter trend with the goth..)
- Cyber (amazingly dark)
- Dark Deeds from the Venomous Villans collection
- Any of the reds mentioned in my previous post on red lips

To matte them down further, use MACs mattifying gel and pat over lip after lipsticks applied or to gloss them up, use MACs clear lip gloss.
