Karlie Kloss at Louis Vuitton RTW Fall 2009

My personal make-up rule: strong eyes or strong lips, never both. Make-up artists behind the Louis Vuitton and Marc Jacobs’ Ready-to-Wear Fall 2009 shows seem to agree with me. Both shows featured extremely nude lips with strong eyes. Same theory, different execution: the Louis Vuitton girl is a fresh minimalist beauty while the Marc Jacobs girl is glam and little bit 80s retro. I love them both.
