Pretty in Pink!



Last year I noticed the trend of hot pink lips, but it seems to be even more prevalent this summer. During my visit to Miami's swim wear fashion shows last weekend, I noticed that the majority of the models on the runway were donning hot pink lips and cheeks. Although I have yet to paint my pucker pink, I have opted to go bold with an electric shade of pink on my nails. I've also gone for bright pink blushes because they instantly add color and dimension. The eye-catching candy-colored hue always seems to add a bit of girly flirtiness that seems so suitable for the summer!

Pink is nice but I think it's better suited on you younger BGs. How I envy you cause back in the day I would have had a pink pout for sure! Now I will put pink on my toes WITH a couple of rhinestones and I dare anyone to say anything about it!

I love pink everything, and if I could get away with it I'd wear all of that pink make up - at the same time!

Rebee said...

Um...not sure if I would try pink.

ADT said...

Hot pink makeup, mmmh. I would wear a dark pink though. The Iredale lipstick is a nice color. I would wear a hot pink accessory.

I love pink but with my skin color it doesn't work.
I'm going to try pink on my toes this weekend.

I'm a fan of hot pink lips on other folks. I'm afraid I'd look like a low budget barbie. I heard lilac was in for nails this summer too and I saw someone wearing it and it's CA-YUTE!!!

I love muted pinks though, almost white for nails. :)

Kwana said...

I don't know if I can pull it off. I'd give it a try though.

Love MAC's 'Girl About Town' paired with bronzed/sunkissed cheeks... I think its the out of the norm contrast it gives that makes me do this look all the time... it's yet to feature on my blog though (but definitely will now -you've inspired me!!)

Another similar and great lip/nail colour perfect for summer: violet & lilac hues. Abslutely LOVE MAC's 'Up the Amp' <3

Great post =D

I want to try a pink lip but for now, I've done hot pink nails. I use Sinful Colors in Cloud 9.

I wear hot pink lips, and also red. I love MACs "Girl About Town" pink lipstick and also their "Fanplastico" red lip-lacquer.

Hot pink is not for me, but it looks good on other people
