Spotted Backstage at NYFW Fall 2014: Wine-Colored Lips And Tips

(Source: ImaxTree)We may only be a few days in to New York Fashion Week Fall 2014, but we've already started to notice some trends brewing. Two looks that keep popping up seem to involve our dinnertime beverage of choice: red wine. The lush hue has made beauty appearances several times on the runways, and we're already calling this vino-inspired look a must-try for your lips and tips this fall.

For nails, we've noticed several manicurists pairing the rich color with a deep, dark black or gray color to create a two-toned effect.

At Rebecca Minkoff, manicurist Michelle Saunders blended masculine and feminine elements by creating a modern French mani. She applied two coats of Essie Bahama Mama followed by a skinny French tip using Essie Midnight Cami.

Katie Jane Hughes for butter LONDON complemented the collection's hardened, feathered look with an appropriately feathered nail. First, she applied butter LONDON nail lacquer in Union Jack Black as a base and then layered on butter LONDON nail lacquer in Knees Up at the cuticle using a striping brush to create a feather-like design.

Keri Blair for MAC Cosmetics created this two-toned airbrush-like nail using a pair of new MAC shades: Midnight Sky, which is a blackened gray, and a hot red color that's still yet to be named. She started by painting two coats of the red shade as a base, then dabbed a makeup sponge into both the red and gray varnishes and blended them on the nail until she reached the desired ombre intensity.

Tadashi Shoji channeled Moorish antiquity with his collection, so makeup artist Lisa Houghton for MAC Cosmetics complemented this Moroccan vibe by dabbing on MAC Hearts a Flame lipstick (available fall/winter 2014) with her finger and then used a tissue to blot for softness.

He applied Maybelline Red Revival lipstick onto his finger first, then smudged it on the models' lips. He then dabbed Maybelline Espresso Exposed right in the center of the lip for extra suppleness.
