80s Glitter Lips Take the Spotlight at Rodarte

Rodarte - nyfw


There's something about Rodarte that seems to set the fashion crowd into a frenzy, and this season, the beauty addicts were right there alongside. The Mulleavy sisters always show plenty of style along with their substance, and this season's look devised by James Kaliardos did not disappoint. There were two major elements, the eye, which featured a heavily shaded upper lid and has been a significant trend for this season so far, and a lip that packed a serious metallic punch. Kaliardos got this look by layering lipstick, one of two shades from NARS Cosmetics we can expect in store later this year, with a blend of glitter and gloss (packed on with a brush for precise application). This look is a bit much to try at home, unless you're really going for it, in which case we recommend not eating or drinking or you risk ingesting more glitter than is recommended. But you can get a more subdued look by applying a glitter-finish lipstick or gloss over your favorite lipstick. Focus the glitter in the center of the lips to make them appear fuller.
