Pucker Up For Pink

I learned during New York Fashion Week that the current lip color de jour is pink! I noticed that many of the models and the fashion forward folk were all about the rosy lips. A fan myself, I think a pretty pink lip looks youthful and healthy. It’s almost as if your lips are blushing. Bold colors can be difficult to pull off, so how do you find the perfect tone for you? Read on!

Pale or light skin:
Go for a soft, peachy shade or a sheer rose. Lip tints would be the best for you because they won’t be overpowering.

Benetint in Rose $30

Revlon ColorBurst in Coquette $8

Medium, olive-based skin:
Great news for you… pretty much every shade of pink is going to look gorgeous. Natural fruit inspired colors like cherry and watermelon will be the best as opposed to anything too vibrant such as hot pink.

YSL Rose Tropical $36

Rimmel Lasting Finish in 05 $5

Deep skin tones:
The brighter and bolder, the better. Magenta and fuchsia will look stunning on your beautiful mug.

Dior in Oversize $35

Maybelline in Faint For Fuchsia $6

  1. My go to …..YOUNIQUE Moodstruck Opulence Lipstick in “AFFLUENT”

    It is a long-wearing, buttery-soft lipstick that smoothly glides
    on and provides full, colorful coverage for a glowing and modern look. Infused with crushed ruby gemstones. My choice because I am a Younique Presenter!!

  2. I adore the clinique chubby sticks, they have a lot of pink shades ?.
    During the day i dont wear a lot of makeup (or no makeup at all) so a tinted lip balm (labello) is my go to!
    I tend to “bite” or “scratch” lipstick of my lips with my teeth (i know gross) so labello or the chubby stick work for me ?

  3. Cooler tones like pink, red and purple look better on me. I want so badly to do the dark lip for fall, but it seems to work better on me if it has a purple tint. One of my favorite bold lip colors is Candy Yum Yum by Mac. It looks kinda crazy in the tube, but I went to the store wearing it this past summer, and two different ladies stopped me in the aisle to tell me how great it looked.

  4. I an not allowed to wear make up since I am only 11 but let me just say that you are my idol. Even though some tips might not be for me I am always inspired by your efforts to keep empowering what you believe in. Also #DWTS is my favorite tv show!!
