1) Simplicity is the Key
Hot pink lips are such a vibrant color that pulling this look off during the day probably seems impossible, well its not. All you have to do is keep everything else simple. Keep your eye and cheek makeup to a minimal so that your lips become the focus. Too much pink is never a good look especially when it’s on your face! So if you do need to wear blush choose a nude color instead.
2) Understanding Undertones
An undertone is the color that is said to lie beneath your skin and it can either be neutral, cool or warm. Most people have no clue what their undertone is but it’s a fairly simple process to find out. Study the color of the veins on your hands, if they are blue you have cool undertones, green is indicative of warm undertones while both would signify that your undertones are neutral. Generally speaking women with warm undertones are better suited to use a hot pink that is almost red based.
3) Trial and Error
At the end of the day however, you never know what might end up looking good on you. While such a bold look might not be for everyone, for those of you willing to try, you need to shop around first. Don’t just pick any random shade; take the time to test each one to find a hue that looks great. Natural light is always better than the fluorescent lights in department stores for testing what a particular color looks like on you, so take a sample or apply a coat of lipstick in the store itself before purchasing it so that you can check it out later.
4) Stay Confident
Why bother with something popular if you don’t have the confidence to pull it off? If you aren’t comfortable with walking around in broad daylight with bright pink lips then why not save this look for parties and special occasions where you won’t feel so out of place. This look works great when combined with white, black, beige or even grey ensembles. For the more daring woman you could try pairing pink lips with a light blue or even yellow outfit.
You only live once so why let your shy personality get in the way of you looking amazing? If you pick a shade of pink that works great for you then there’s no reason why you shouldn’t rock the look. Morning or night when done right this look definitely screams “fashionable”.
