It might be a look that’s best associated with the Wicked Witch Of The West but, sure enough, green lips are making a comeback.
Just look at Dolce & Gabbana’s newly launched limited-edition Sicilian Jewels collection, which features the bold emerald hue.
It’s certainly a striking look but is it one that’s particularly wearable?
“This lip look is incredible, so feminine but striking at the same time,” raves celebrity make-up artist Pat McGrath in an interview with Vogue.com.
“It can be worn in a young, ironic interpretation or with a more grown-up, sophisticated vibe. Just like a piece of jewellery,” she insists, suggesting gold-toned make-up to enhance the jewel-like tone of the lipstick.
Dolce & Gabbana make-up artist Christian McCulloch explains that this line is about experimentation and having a little bit of fun.
“I would wear the green in a sheer way, mixed with a gloss or with a sparkle,” he says.
“You could also use it on the eye, used as a cream eyeshadow, with a slight gloss. Obviously, if you are doing green lipstick, the rest of the face would be minimal.
“With black eyeliner, mascara, and pale skin, it would be a little bit goth. It’s a directional color; it’s not a suburban look.”
