OCC are incredibly good at blending theatrical looks with everyday make-up – colours we would never have thought to wear suddenly, put in context, seem possible. And before you wonder where I’m going with a sell on green lips, this is part of the Fragmented Alice collection, inspired by Gail Potocki, symbolist artist, whose painting series of the same name is an interpretation of Alice in Wonderland.
Make-up never has to be simply about every-day wear; it’s expressive at any level and I guess it’s about how far you want to take that. There is more to the collection that just the green-gold metallic lip tar; some loose shades that look fun, too as well as a bright red nail colour. This is wearable; heck if I can wear grey gloss, I can certainly have a go at this – the key is to wear it really, really light so nobody is quite sure if it has a green tinge or not.
It’s not in the UK yet as far as I know but it’s on its way.
