Ginnifer Goodwin is the master at mixing the demure with the bold, and that's exactly what she did at last night's Young Hollywood Awards. "Ginny wore a very sweet white lace dress with some naughty shoes," said makeup artist Pati Dubroff. And as for the makeup look, the duo wanted to reflect a similar vibe. While the cheeks and eyes remained clean and streamlined, "For the lips we used a pop of brightest possible pink, bordering on neon," Dubroff explained. But before your mind conjures up images of days when Debbie Gibson was on the radio waves 24-7, give hot pink a chance. Learn how to get it right for modern times when you read more.
The key? "It's not about the shine — it's about the shock of color," Dubroff says. That's why she applied Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics' Lip Tar in Queen ($14), a vibrant, satiny red-coral, over Nars Pur Matte Lipstick in Carthage ($25), a richly pigmented hot pink. This way, by layering two ultrabold colors, you'll get even more intense, long-lasting results. And that's what you call hot stuff, hot stuff.
