This bright pink, matte lipstick Ginnifer Goodwin’s rockin’ is just about the coolest shade I’ve seen on the red carpet lately (and a slightly bolder version of the look Elizabeth Banks sported last month). The perfect, almost neon pink makes a major statement, especially in relation to her lady-like white lace dress. Pretty, pretty! I love how she kept the rest of her makeup and hair clean and simple. I mean, let the lips speak for themselves, right? To make ultra-bold lips fade- and feather-proof, follow these steps:
Step 1. Dab a tiny bit of your regular concealer over your lips and around the edges. This fills in any fine-lines so the color doesn’t bleed and creates a nice base for your lipstick to hang on to. I love Sonia Kashuk Hidden Agenda Concealer Palette, $10.
Step 2. Line your lips with a pencil in the same (or similar) bold shade to give your lips a sharp outline. Try MAC Lip Pencil in Embrace Me, $14.
Step 3. Finally, fill in with the crazy pink of your choice, like Nars Pure Matte Lipstick in Carthage, $25.
I’m wearing this color tomorrow. Would you wear your lips this bright?
