As my fellow TheVogueCity.com writers Arianna, Brenae and Mirela have all agreed upon, we don’t blindly put on whatever a designer tells us we should wear. Sometimes they’re geniuses, but sometimes their out of their frickin’ minds.
The Christian Lacroix spring 2008 runway show had lots of poofy dresses that I’d never wear. Several of the models there had a look I did want to copy, though – a fuchsia lip. While they paired their’s with vibrant purple eyeshadow – that’s too much for daily wear.
Style tip: When you go bold with makeup – go bold with just one aspect.
The model’s for the (ultra ladylike and romantic) Valentino Couture spring 2008 runway show also donned fuchsia lips. The eye makeup there mostly consisted of heavy black eyeliner on the top lids that were drawn to wing out at the sides. Again, a bit much for most of us. But I can’t get over the lip color, I love it. It’s fun and really girly. And what am I if not fun and really girly? (I was going to buy a little Hell-o Kitty change purse the other day!)
So, I scoured the web for how to copy the look. You can use just a gloss, just a lip stick, or layer them.
#1.Dior Addict Ultra Gloss Reflect ($24.50) at Sephora. The color name? Fuchsia Poplin!
#2. Bourjois Effet 3D High Shine Lip Gloss ($15.50) at Sephora. The color name? Framboise Magnific!
#3. Dior Addict Lipstick ($25.00) at Saks. The Color? Optic Fuchsia!

Psst, do you have a lip brush?
And do you want more brightness? Brenae’s got you covered.
Anyone else have a crush on Heroes star Milo ventimiglia? So yummy…
Here’s to living in sublime style,
