Barbie Pink Lipstick!

11 Jun

Barbie was on to something when she always had those bright pink lips. I have been loving this color and I cannot wait to try out some new lipsticks. There are a few things to remember when wearing a bright lipstick like Hot Pink.

(Click photo for original site)

-Less shiny, more matte. A matte finish gives the lips a more grown up and sophisticated look. There are many types of lipsticks with a matte formula in them. However, if you happen across a shade of lipstick that you can’t bare to pass on, there is a way to “matte-fy” it. You want to blot the lipstick with a tissue then use a powder brush to brush on a small amount of transparent powder on. You don’t want to over-do it because your lips will end up looking chalky.

-Moisturize. Matte + Chapped lips = disaster. Make sure to take care of your lips before putting on matte lipstick. The finish will accentuate any dryness on your lips. One way to take care of dry lips is to lightly buff your lips with a soft toothbrush. This will help slough off some of the cells. Also, drink plenty of water to keep your body, and lips hydrated.

-Simple everything else. You don’t want to take any attention away from your gorgeous pout with heavy eye makeup. Keep the eyes simple so you can let your lips be your star. Also, a great way to frame your face is to fill in your brows with a pencil. I love the YBF eyebrow pencil in Universal Taupe. It looks really great with my brows and doesn’t look too light or dark.You can buy a pencil from Birchbox.

With these tips your lips will be looking more fabulous than Barbie EVER was! I haven’t been able to try and hot pink lipsticks, so if you have a favorite I would love to hear about it (and see pictures!)
