BLURRED LINES FALL'S NEW MODERN LIP IS PERFECTLY IMPERFECT. BY CHRISTINA CLEMENTE PHOTOGRAPHY BY LUCA CANNONIERI (GIAMBATTISTA VALLI RUNWAY) Forget "Instagram lips," the all-too-ubiquitous look combining lots of lip liner with matte lipstick—this season's trendiest makeup trend is intentionally unpolished. From Rosie Assoulin to Giambattista Valli to Preen, smudged, blurred, and faded lipstick in an array of red tones was the star of this fall's fashion shows, making lived-in pouts en vogue. "Sometimes the beauty and modernity of a moment is in the imperfec- tion," says veteran makeup artist Val Garland, who created the "just-snogged" lip look for Preen, as well as Giambattista Valli's patchy, high-voltage gloss. Garland suggests first applying your lip color as you normally would, then using a fluffy eye-blending blush (or your fingers) to soften the outline of your lip shape. Try the full coverage Powermatte Lip Pigment from NARS ($26; Sephora, 605 N. Michigan Ave., 312-649-9343; and top it with Givenchy's Gloss Révéla- teur ($32; Barneys New York, 15 E. Oak St., 312- 587-1700;, a universally shaded lip gloss, at the center of the lips. Says Garland, "This gives you the gloss without the messy outline." . Artfully unkempt: "Sometimes, the beauty of a moment is in the imperfection," says Val Garland, makeup artist behind the on-trend lips at Giambattista Valli's Fall runway show.

Just as accents vary from city to city, the same holds true for eyebrow trends. "Each [region] takes its beauty cues from different places, which makes looks super distinct," explains Jared Bailey, global brow expert with cosmetics giant Benefit. And when it comes to the Windy City, says Bailey, it's a natural brow that's all the rage. "In Chicago, women like to enhance their natural beauty," says Bailey. "Natural brow styles can be seen from the Magni- ficent Mile all the way to Wrigleyville." Opt for a product that will create a "natural wash of color" throughout the eyebrow shape, like Benefit's Goof Proof Brow Pencil ($24). 852 W.
