In many shows the models had a very natural look. The make-up made them look pretty and fresh but it was not exaggerated. Sometimes it was as if the models had no make-up on at all.

Of course there were exceptions. We could see dark smokey eyes, white-painted faces and strange-looking eyebrows. We also noticed some colorful lips passing by. Altogether nearly every possible shade of red was used for the models’ lips. Some bright colors like blue (Paul Smith, Doo Ri), green (Iceberg) and orange (Loewe, Prada) were shown as well.

At John Galliano’s show the models had ultra-thin eyebrows and small dark-purple pursed lips. The models at Viktor & Rolf had bright red lips with an extra gloss. Vivienne Westwood’s models had red lips that ended halfway their chin, looking somewhat like a bird’s bill. It made perfect sense, since all models had the looks of a tropical bird.

There is no specific trend when it comes to the color of the lips. It seems next summer any shape or color will do.
