One of our favorite looks for fall, the dark lip worn with a nude eye, is also one of the season’s easiest to wear. At Rodarte, NARS Cosmetics makeup artist James Kaliardos used plenty of illuminators and highlighters to achieve glowing and slightly otherworldly skin. This allowed the very dark lip to be feminine and sweet, not gothic. Kaliardos says, “the makeup look is beautifully romantic, with a contrast of deep color.” See below for some of our favorite pieces to get the look, including the NARS Liv Audacious Lipstick used in the show.

NARS Cosmetics Audacious Lipstick in Liv is a new release this fall. This deep eggplant color has a satiny application and is available in 45 shades. Giorgio Armani Beauty’s Ecstasy Lacquer is a high-gloss, long-wearing lip stain. While it is deeply pigmented, you can layer to achieve the intensity you want. is a luxurious and creamy tint packed with ingredients for maximum hydration. Goddess is her most pigmented lip tint and is ready for a glamorous night out. We also love the chic packaging. The name says it all; Lipstick Queen. Long lasting and deeply pigmented, these lipsticks are ready for a full day of serious color and are available in some bold shades that most companies don’t make.
