Rochas F/W 2012
We are slowly trickling into Fall makeup trends. I’ve been wearing this one for the last two weeks and don’t plan on stopping for the rest of the year. A clean, fresh face with a very dark burgundy lip. This look is from Rochas, although it was all over the runways, including Gucci. 
Clé de Peau #R1 lipstick ($65 at Holt Renfrew)
What I love about Rochas is the matte-ness — it gives the face less of a vixeny look without the shine. Makeup artist Lucia Pieroni used a brand new colour from Clé de Peau (#R10, a dark mulberry) and then blotted the shine with a tissue with some powder (you can just use your blotting papers). 
Train Bleu Velvet Matte Lip Pencil ($30 at NARS)
While I adore Clé de Peau lipsticks, they are also one of the most expensive on the market (it will set you back $65!). A lip product that I’ve favoured lately is NARS’ Velvet Matte Pencils.  (Here’s me, wearing the lighter shade in Never Say Never.) It’s brilliant: a pencil moisturising enough to be a lipstick. The deep aubergine of Train Bleu is dark, creamy and luxurious, plus no blotting required.  
What are your favourite burgundy lipsticks?
