From neutral to neon, we saw it all painted on the lips of models strutting the spring runways. Powerful pouts of pink, peach, red, and even blue made statements at Louis Vuitton, John Galliano, Ruffian, Valentino, and Thakoon (waiting lists for this Lancôme designer series lip color open this month). Local makeup artist Sara Domi created this look using spring’s hottest hues: pink, blue (even on nails), and gold. Her tip for working with the season’s bold palette: “When using shine on the eyes or lips, keep the rest of the face matte.”
