I love a bright lip look. It’s a cinch to do — no fancy application techniques required. It’s low commitment in terms of cost. And, it can instantly make you look pulled together — even when in reality you’ve spent less than two minutes on your makeup.
That’s why I’m beyond thrilled that bright, in-your-face lips are a huge trend for spring. I’m embracing it for sure. When I wore the bold look last week, one of the girls in my office told me the bright shade should be my new go-to. I might just take her advice. Well, that’s if I can resist all of the other great products and shades on the shelves right now.
The bright lip color I’ve been using: Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Lip Balm Stain in Smitten, $8.99. This fuchsia shade looks great on my fair skin tone. And, the formula is devine. The pigments are rich and long-lasting (similar to a stain), and the balmy texture hydrates your lips just enough so that they’re not totally parched (a feeling that often comes along with wearing a lip stain), but not so much that the color seeps into fine lines. I can slick it on in the morning and still have a decent amount of color left on my lips at night — without touchups.
It’s practically perfect.
By the time some of you true Twihards out there read this, you’ll have already seen the highly-anticipated final flick in the Twilight series. And, if you’ve been paying attention to all of the hoopla surrounding the release of this film, then you probably know that the lovely Dakota Fanning showed up at the premiere as a brunette. What do you think of her new hair color?
I think it definitely adds a level of sophistication to her look. And, the makeup she sported was the perfect complement to her new hue. One of my in-the-know friends gave me scoop how to copy her look. Here’s the breakdown:
Dermalogica Age Smart SkinPerfect Primer SPF 30, $48. (Love this stuff!)
It’s the perfect makeup look for day or night. A classic go-to.
