Green Eyes, Red Lips

Lately I keep returning to two striking images of green eye makeup paired with orange-red lips. The first one is the ad for Tom Ford's upcoming beauty line featuring Lara Stone. It's hard to stop staring at her iridescent green eyeshadow and that perfectly defined pout. Gorgeous! (For an excellent rundown of the collection, check out this write-up by Anya of I'm the It Girl for The Block.)

The second is Chanel's take on the green eyes/red lips look. For the Jil Sander F/W 2011 show, Chanel makeup's global creative director Peter Philips lined models' eyes with Stylo Yeux Waterproof in 'Jade' and applied Rouge Allure lipstick in 'Enthusiast'. Both products are available at local Chanel counters right now, but if you're a Vancouver reader, please wait until I buy them first so I don't have to suffer the crushing disappointment of their unavailability!

Which of these two beauty looks do you prefer? Have you tried Tom Ford's lipsticks or are you a fan of Chanel's? Are any of you looking forward to the Tom Ford beauty line launch this fall?


  1. I personally don't think this color combo would suit me, but I do like the looks I see on the models. I didn't like Ford's perfume line at all (way to strong for my liking), but his lipstick line looks ok, though I've never tried it. I do like Chanel lippies though.

  2. Thanks for the mention!

    I'm loving strong colour right now. It's nice to see a bit of a 70s/80s throwback. The Chanel/Jil Sander one looks really wearable for us "normals."

    I still think Tom Ford lipsticks are divine!

  3. Haute World and Anya, it really is a very wearable look! I bought the lipstick and eyeliner last Friday (probably the first time I've run out and purchased the exact products used in a beauty look) and wore both to a barbecue yesterday night. One of the hostesses complimented me on the "original" colour combo.

  4. I love the drama of the Tom Ford look, but i don't really think I would wear either, just for fear of screwing up and looking like a clown! Post photos of your results? :)

    Hope you're having a good week Lisa!

  5. Jen, the Chanel for Jil Sander look is quite subtle and wearable. Think of classic black cat's eye liner but in a fun green hue.

  6. Love the green eyes and coral lips. My fav look is the Tom Ford one. If I knew anything about makeup I'd consider trying it for myself, but I'll have to leave it up to the experts lol

  7. this color combination looks great on her, I would try it but i am not so sure it will look half as good on my skin tone.
