TopShop Dark Side of Nude Collection

Release Date: Mid-October 2012
Availability: TopShop

Company’s Description

Dark Side of Nude is the new timeless capsule collection from Topshop Make Up this Autumn Winter 2012. Chic nude and deep claret lip shades sit side-by-side, whilst high shine black, bright golds and silvers add rock’n’roll cool to this make-up uprising. Grown up gothic looks are translated with warm metallics, creamy skin and a polished, painted lip. Nails in muted grey and the deepest Ox blood contrast in both texture and pigment against high shine gold and black and silver glitter.

The new collection sits alongside Topshop’s enchanting Halloween fashion collection Witching Hour, a brooding collection full of bewitching charm. Delicate slip dresses in silk are contrasted with heavily studded leather biker jackets and cobweb printed leggings, while frilly ankle socks are toughed up with stomping brothel creepers; think gothic come seductive and dangerously rich in haunting prowess.
