How to Wear Neon Pink Lipstick

Learn the Key to Wearing Neon Pink Lip Color Like Ginnifer Goodwin

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.
