If you love pink, then you're in luck: it's officially a major beauty trend for Fall 2015! And of course there's no easier way to incorporate it into your look than by wearing it on your lips! Delicate and romantic, more discrete than red but bolder than nude, pink is the perfect color to dress up your pout this season.
50 shades of pink
The color of peonies, blushing cheeks, French macarons... pink is the quintessential feminine color. From blush to bubblegum, flamingo to fuchsia, pink comes in a such a wide variety of shades that there's truly a color to suit every kind of woman! Here are some of our top tips for working this lovely shade...
Choose your color
Fair complexions are often cool-toned so look to bluish-pink candy hues for a bold look. Olive skin tones are quite warm, so you should consider soft coral and watermelon shades. If you have dark skin, don't be afraid to opt for a rich magenta or hot pink for a bright pop of color!
For perfectly kissable pink lips, make sure you apply your color carefully. Bright colors draw attention to the lips, making any dryness more noticeable, so always start by exfoliating! To do this, gently brush your lips with a toothbrush and then cover them with a hydrating balm.
Next, use a nude lip liner to trace the shape of your lips, preventing any "bleeding" of the color and ensuring it stays in place longer. Apply your lip color straight from the tube, then follow up with a lip brush for the most even coverage. Blot, reapply, and you're all done!
