Balenciaga Runway Shows Bold Black-Cherry Lips In Spring 2012



Many wonderful trends come off the runways each season, and although we shouldn't copy EVERTHING we see on the catwalk, this is one little beauty tip we think you will like:

Black cherry lips. All glossed up.

Fashion and beauty editors were going ga-gag over the dark, sexy mouths that ruled the Balenciaga and Louis Vuitton 2012 spring runways. You couldn't help but notice the striking lip color sitting pretty beneath the low-sloping hats of the Balenciaga show and boldly standing out on the Louis Vuitton models.

Celebrated makeup artist Pat McGrath tells Vogue magazine about the strong black-cherry lips trend she started, "It was about about power."

And you can get the runway look here, too. Pat gives out the details:

1. Layer CoverGirl Queen Collection Lipstick in Fine Wine($6.99) OVER CoverGirl LipPerfection Lipstick in Euphoria($6.99).

Okay, so black-cherry lips aren't for the shy gals, but think of the shade as a great Spring 2012 accessory. Like a gorgeous pair of shoes, you don't need much else.
