Rocking a daring lip used to be all about the right red lips yet it seems that's it out with the old and in with the new, with new being bright pink, of course. Bright pink lips are a great way to add some much needed colour to a drab outfit or give you a 'pick me up' when you feel like you're getting into a make up rut. It's the perfect all round brightener! 

If you plan on rocking the neon pink lip, it's important to keep the rest of your make up quite understated. You definitely want your lips to be the focal point! 

According to what I've read, blue undertones will work best for cool undertones, whilst orange and red based pinks will work best for those with warm undertones. When it comes to knowing what shade of pink will work best with your skintone, I'm definitely not an expert but I've found a site that might give you a bit of an indication of what will look best. Want to see? Click here.
To achieve this look I used a lipstick I bought specially for this post, Covergirl's Lip Perfection Lipstick in Spellbound. It wasn't the best I've ever applied lipstick, as I'm sure you can tell, but it was very difficult to neaten it up once applied. I didn't realise quite how pigmented this lipstick would be!

If a bright pink lipstick is too much for you and you're looking for a good transition colour, I'd recommend you check out Revlon Colorburst's Lip Butter in Sweet Tart. It's a fairly bright pink, especially if you're not a bright pink person, but still sheer enough to be wearable.

**I know I said keep the rest of your make up nude but the purple eyes are for an upcoming post. In saying that though, I think it looks kind of cool..

So, tell me, what do you think of the neon/bright pink lip look? Will you be rocking it this Spring and/or Summer? If so, what are your favourite products to create it?

  1. BRIGHT PINK LIPS ARE MY OBSESSION!!!!! I have 3 Mac Lipsticks that are so bright and I love wearing them with a winged liner. I love Blue Pinks because they are so much brighter and I pair them with a warmer pink lip liner because I have pink undertones in my skin

  2. This line of Rimmel has the best bright colours: http://rimmellondonlook.blogspot.com.au/2010/07/steal-show-with-rimmel-london-colour.html
