A couple of months back, classic super-red lips were THE talk of the town. For this Spring/Summer however, you can let your red lippies rest at the back of your drawer – for a while at least.
Bright pink lips are taking over and making huge waves right now! I have always wanted to try out the hot pink trend – and I guess this calls for the perfect opportunity to do so. So Barbie-esque and so very pretty.

Think this bright lip trend would be difficult to pull off? I bet you’d think again because we are going to share some tips on how you can embrace this trend without looking too 1980s!
• It’s best to apply your bright pink lipstick straight from the tube or use your finger to spread the fab colour all over your pout.
• Afraid that you might look OTT? Don’t fret – simply apply the colour onto the back of your hand. Then, use a lip brush and apply to your lips.
• To ensure that your lippie lasts for hours, try this trick: Smooth on a generous layer of lipstick. Blot with a Kleenex. Then, dust on a coat of translucent powder. Apply another layer of lipstick and you’ll be sure that the colour stays put!
• Please don’t even think of going pink form head-to-toe – that’s just a big no-no! Do remember to keep the rest of your face subdued. Too many colours will just make you look like Bozo the Clown! Smoky eyes work great with bright pink lips or opt for neutrals/taupes with eyeliner for elegant precision. Don’t forget a few lashings of mascara.
