Risto's Burgundy-Colored Lip Was Done With Only A Pencil!

The dreamy knits and futuristic prints at Risto were thrilling as always, but what really captured our hearts were the dark burgundy lips and ultra-matte foundation. The grunge revival was in full swing backstage, with each model wearing a look that was equal parts Kurt Cobain, Kevyn Aucoin, and Steven Meisel. Hair was flatiron-waved, parted down the middle, and straightened at the ends for a stiff bedhead effect. Risto said of his muses, "I finished school in Paris in the '90s, so it's the first time that I can recycle my own decade." We also loved the nails, which were painted the electric blue of a Razz Berry Blow Pop. Get the look at home by drawing with MAC's lip pencil in Mahogany (draw on two layers of color with just the pencil and blot in between for the mattest possible finish) and OPI nail polish in Blue My Mind.
