Allure Backstage Spring 2008 makeup trends – Deep Red Lips. Spring 2008: No doubt—crimson lips are daring and very unexpected for Spring. At many of the shows makeup artists made the nearly always matte lipstick feel informal by putting them on casually with a finger tip. There was a theme running through all the shows of a certain artsy-ness. It was this really done up, artistic, urban girl.
Backstage at Dolce & Gabbana makeup artist Pat McGrath explained the inspiration
“..she’s running around with the art crowd, she’s very contemporary looking and she’s very artistic. I think people are really excited about makeup and I think there’s a whole lot going on with clubs and people just doing what they want to do and I think that whole freedom reflects what’s going here backstage”.
