Lip Noir

Bella Hadid backstage at Rodarte

Islands of candles flickering in a sea of white flowers in the St. Bartholomew Church in New York City, tulle and organza floating through the holy hall – But instead of cliché romantic looks, Rodarte presented Dracula-vibes instead of diademic glitter.
And Nars Make-up-Artist James Kaliardos created a make-up-cult to match this style: precise rimmed lips with sharp edges, lips filled with the midnight bordeaux shade Train Bleu. „When you have a dark lip, it’s important to go to the full extent of your lip, or else you can look like Edward Scissorhands“, Kaliardos explains the accurate shape.
Another commandment: Skin has to look healthy to balance the gothic pout. A base enriched with metallic pigments  – Tinted Glow Booster – and subtle blush application did the magic – So well that we are seeing a bright and wearable future for dark lips.
