One of my favorite trends this summer is actually a beauty trend. And it is a trend that initially frightened me. Apparently, I scare easily.
Instead of playing the mind games I usually play with you (and because I am still somewhat sick and consequently not my witty self) let me get right to it. I am talking about hot pink lips.
I think this trend speaks to me because it makes a statement on its own. Plus it’s fun. And like I always say— fashion & beauty should be fun.
So, I decided to try it out. I went to Sephora with Lukus and basically tried on a million lip shades. Part of why this trend made me nervous is because I have an olive complexion and I wasn’t sure I could pull it off without looking sickly (the irony here of course, is that when I took the photos of me wearing it I was sick). I narrowed it down to 2 shades- one by Dior and one Sephora’s brand. I ended up with the Sephora version because I still wasn’t totally sold on the idea. Like I said, I was scared.
When I got home and played with it I realized I really liked it, but with most things there are some keys to wearing it:
1) Try a lot of colors. Not every shade of hot pink will work on every person. You’ve got to try things out until you find one that works for you.
2) Moisturize your lips. A bright color is not forgiving! So make sure your lips aren’t chapped.
4) Be confident! Lips like this can’t be worn timidly. So have fun with them.
(Yep. This is the week’s NoH Does!!! So send me a photo of your best pucker. All photos due by the end of the day Friday, July 15th. Email them along with your info and the name of the lip shade to firstname.lastname@example.org.)
