Try cotton candy & Barbie pink lips like at Moschino. I like Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Stormy Pink Matte. I’m always surprised at how good this colour looks on women of different ages. Sometimes the colour looks brighter in the tube than on your lips. To me it doesn’t say Barbie it says youthful, especially when done with fresh skin, blush and a neutral or cat eye. If you’re not sure how to test a lipstick colour, squeeze the tip of your ring finger so some blood flows into the pad of your finger and apply lipstick there. This will give you a rough idea of how it will look over your natural lips.
Another great colour this spring is tomato or classic red, which is always chic. Red was seen at Burberry Prorsum & Zac Posen. It’s also fashionable not to look too done – so try using a damp Q-tip instead of a lip brush to blur the lips slightly. Try peach and beige lip colours too! Pair them with a lilac eyeshade or graphic eyeliner.
If you get a chance to visit Sephora, check out Marc Jacobs Beauty Le Marc Lip Crèmes, a collection of lipsticks that contain plumping peptides, meranti, and hydrating cocoa butter with pigments that promise to stay put for 10 hours. With no less than 20 shades of pink and red to choose from, you’ll definitely see me in store!
