Look To Love: Hot Pink Lipstick

Hot pink lipstick: I'm about 98.7789% sure I could never pull this look off, but I love it nonetheless.

 Of course Lauren Conrad looks amazing flaunting hot pink lips.  This girl always looks flawless and I always adore her outfits and makeup.  I was excited to run across her makeup artist's blog recently, Amy Nadine Beauty Blog.  She gives step-by-step directions as well as the exact products used to get Lauren's makeup looks.  For the above photo's deets click here.  She uses a lot of mark products, (most likely because Lauren is a spokesperson for the company) which I have always wanted to try.  

Moving on...



When I saw this picture of Lake Bell is People Stylewatch I knew I had to scan and post it.  She looks all kinds of amazing.  Those are some serious dagger eyes though. Simma down Lake, we're your friends.  We come in peace. 

According to the mag she is wearing Nars lipstick in Funny Face.

The mag suggests lining your lips in a nude liner to allow for precise application of such a bright color.

Here are a few more beauties rockin' the hot pink lips:

Alexis Bledel

Eva Mendes

Jessica I-hate-you-because-you're-dating-my-man Biel

Sandra Bullock

A few things I have noticed about these pics: 
Most have matched their blush to their lip color for a cohesive look.
Most are wearing very neutral colored tops/dresses. Such a bold statement on the lips shouldn't compete with much else.

So what do you think? Do you like it? Would you rock it? Have you rocked it? Will you send me a picture so I can live vicariously through you?

All pics from google images, except Lake Bell's which was scanned by moi from People Stylewatch.

  1. I'm scared of anything other than clear lipgloss so obviously there's no way I'm rocking hot pink. However, if it would make my eyes look like Bledel's, I'd consider it.

  6. i love it and i've rocked it! but i have a couple rules when wearing pink lipstick...

    1. wear the right shade for your skin color. some are just wayyy too barbie-esque for me.

    2. if the pink makes your teeth look yellow (as i've seen on many woman). do not, i repeat, DO NOT wear pink lipstick.

    k thanks :)

  7. I was just on the Mark website yesterday for the first time and fell. In. LOVE.

    I want everything! And at their reasonable prices, it's even more appealing.

  8. Oh I think you could totally rock it!

    I'm a big chicken when it comes to lipstick, but for a party during the holiday season I went for a daring red shade on my lips. At first it took me a little bit to get use to it, but then I just owned it and got many compliments on it. So even though I was a bit uncomfortable it actually looked good.

    Try it! I didn't want to spend a lot of $$ on something I wasn't sure what I was going to use it again so I went with a 99 cent pick at the drugstore.

  9. I totally agree with High Heeled! I usually buy a tube of Wet n' Wild (yep, and I'm 35!) to test out a new shade. One of my super-trendy friends told me that coral was really in for spring, so I'll probably try that before the hot pink!

  11. Looks great. Couldn't pull it off. Maybe if one of their makeup artists applied the whole package for me... That would be fun!

  12. I can't handle it. Been there, done that already and I don't think I want to go back. But I'll try to remain open-minded.

  15. Ha! the other day I was admiring pink lips in a mag and my husband looked over and said how awful. I am thinking it may be only a girl thing. Then again my husband really doesn't like makeup much at all.
