We went quite wild for the lilac eye and red lip combo backstage at the Christian Dior S/S '10 show, and have been pondering the possibilities of trying the look ourselves ever since. Sadly, after considerable thought, we concluded that while fabulous on the models, it is doubtful whether us civilian types could pull this combo off. Hope was almost abandoned until a rummage in the Grazia beauty cupboard today produced a pair of amazing feathery black and lavender Shu Uemura lashes... It’s just a thought, but combining these fabulous falsies with a classic red lipstick like MAC Ruby Woo might just result in the perfect pared-down Dior-esque look...
