Fashion Week Lip Trend: Bare!

So, I have been perusing various photo galleries from New York Fashion Week, paying particular attention to the makeup. Something that jumped out at me was a trend toward bareness for spring 2010. I have seen a number of faces with a dramatic eye and bare lips. I have also seen plenty of looks that included a pretty eye and blush, but again, bare, or nearly bare lips. Take, for example, this look from Davidelfin (which I happen to like quite a bit). It has more lip color (which I suspect is natural for the model), than many looks that I have seen:

And then there is this look done by MAC Cosmetics for BCGB. Bareness at its finest!

I can’t really complain when it looks as good as it does on these BCBG models:

So what if you don’t want to be completely bare this spring? Well, you can still follow the trend by applying a nude or natural lip look—something that will never go out of style for either your lip look or your entire face.
