At a recent Henri Bendel and YSL Beaute's party, Leighton and Taylor were flaunting two of fall's biggest makeup trends--carnation-colored lips and shimmery charcoal shadow.
Leighton was rocking: carnation lips.
Why it worked: The bold pink shade played off of her pale eye shadow and dark pink dress perfectly. A rich look named after a cheap flower. Clever girl.
Carnation colors Allure editors are loving: Lancome Juicy Tubes Smoothie Ultra Shiny Lip Gloss in Autumn Jasmine and Bobbi Brown Metallic Lip Color in Ruffle.
Taylor Momsen was sporting: shimmery charcoal shadow.
Why it worked: The shade that rimmed Taylor's eyes looked tough, but its finely milled shimmering particles kept her from looking hard. (Her leather jacket took care of that bit.)
Charcoals we're loving: Elizabeth Arden Color Intrigue Eye Shadow Duo in Illusion, Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadowliner in Skinny Jeans, and Make Up For Ever Professional Star Powder in 950.
