Seasonal beauty trends: The Colour Purple

Make-up trends autumn/winter 2009-2010: purple make-up

 

Traditionally the colour of royalty, purple has been prominent on the fall winter catwalks, particuarly at Dior, Oscar de la Renta and Marni, while Pringle and Roksanda went for more winter berry shades. Inspiring mystery and magic, shades of plum, violet and mauve are invading make-up collections too - swept onto eyes, lashes and lips.

Sensual and majestic purple was everywhere at the fall/winter 2009-10 catwalk shows. At Dior, it was found on silk jumpsuits, dresses and coats (above left). At Nina Ricci, purple took possession of extravagent, sparkly boots (right) and at Léonard , splashes of purple shook up a little black dress (above right). Black and purple made an appearance at Gucci and Marni too.
