Fall 2009: Dolce & Gabbana The Makeup

The Fall color collections keep rolling in and up next is Dolce & Gabbana The Makeup…

Inspired by Surrealism, the Dolce & Gabbana A/W 09 runway collection echoed both revolutionary sensibility and rebellious spirit and that inspiration trickled down to the beautiful (and a bit unexpected) Fall 2009 Dolce & Gabbana The Makeup Romantic collection.

“We worship the surrealists; they pushed the limits-and proved that anything is possible,” says Stefano Gabbana, “With the Romantic Collection, the idea is to break away from the expected to transform beauty, creating a look that is about ultimate fantasy.”"And the ultimate luxury,” adds Domenico Dolce, “After all, the ultimate luxury is to dream and, for the Dolce & Gabbana woman, the dream should always be a reality.” (Oh, those Italians!)

Legendary make-up artist Pat McGrath collaborated closely with the designers to create the beauty look that includes a few beautiful new shades of light, ethereal pinks.

For Lips:

Soft, a new shade of the classic lipstick and the lipliner.

The same hue adds sophistication to nails, through the new Soft shade of the nail lacquer.

Eyes are delicate, yet smoldering with the eyeshadow duo in Rose:

Cheeks appear lightly flushed with the blush in new Delight:

“Dolce & Gabbana wanted to take risks with colour, texture, mood – and at the same time capture the essence of each element,” says Pat McGrath.”While the focus is on the eyes – very sexy, very daring – the soft voluptuous lips add an intensity that’s erotic. The rose look is very romantic, almost ethereal – yet very sophisticated.”

I must admit – I find the pink palette an odd choice for Fall, which I normally associate with reds, wines, plums and a nice smokey eye! That said, shades like this really work for my skintone regardless of season, so I might just embrace the look.

What do you think of the Dolce & Gabbana Romantic Collection?
