How to Wear Hot Pink Lipstick

4 Ways to Wear Hot Pink Lipstick: Daring or Wild

Hot pink lip color was all over the Spring 2011 catwalks, and was seen in shows such as Jil Sander (pictured above) and Diane von Furstenberg. And now that the season has arrived, we're seeing the trend making its way on red carpets everywhere. Want to wear the trend, but just aren't sure how to do it? See four different ways to get the look — both daring and wild — when you read more.


For the daring: Take a hint from Katy Perry and pair your bold pink lip color with a pastel blue polish. Long lashes and champagne shadow keep it from going too far. For something that puts the emphasis on the eyes, however, try Jennifer Hudson's approach. Start by lining the eyes with black waterproof liquid liner for a cat-eye effect. Then, sweep on a silvery shadow on the inner portion of the eyes, followed by a rich coffee brown hue on the outer creases for added drama.


For something more tame: Hot pink lipstick is bold on its own, so keep it simple with just a touch of baby-pink blush and a hint of black liner just on the upper lash lines, as did Emma Stone. For something with more warmth, look to Eva Pigford for inspiration. After applying a generous amount of bronzer to the hairline, cheeks, tip of the nose, and chin, apply a golden shadow to the lids, and just under the lower lash lines. Ground the look with a touch of mascara and a pop of caramel-toned shadow in the creases.

I have to admit I didn't recognize her when I first saw this particular photo of her.

That hair color on Eva ages her considerably IMO. I feel that she should go back to that honey-colored blonde which suited her much better.
