The Fall 2011 Gucci show in Milan made a statement hinting at fall trends for hair and makeup. To sum up the maquillage in one word: luxurious. Sleek and sharp ponytails ruled the runways as intense lashes captured the camera, however it was the dark and rich reds that really stole the show. Decadent and dark ruby reds paired with high definition lip gloss puts the focal point on the lips, sexy and bold. Along with the bold and decadent reds, similar hues were spotted on the runway for nails.
Models channeled Morticia Addams combined with Rihanna’s "Rated R" phase with the burgundy nail polish in Rouge Noir by Chanel Le Vernis. As the Fall 2011 Gucci show proved, it’s either dark lipstick or bright eyes for the upcoming season since to do both looks would qualify as prepping for Cirque du Soleil auditions.
