Pretty Fresh Looking in Candy-Pink Lipstick
Pretty Face Taylor Swift
Neutral candy-pink lipstick shades like pale pink, taupe, and brown have been all the rage of late.
However, it seems that eye-catching candy-pinks lipstick are about to make a major comeback, especially as Taylor Swift was photographed sporting a bright pink pout at the recent 2019 iHeartRadio Music Awards, with her pretty look courtesy of her go-to make-up artist Lorrie Turk.
Keen to copy Taylor? Isa Lavahun, digital brand manager at beauty discovery platform Cosmetify.com, is adamant bright pink is the ultimate day-to-night lipstick shade.
“Taylor absolutely rocked it at the 2019 iHeartRadio event for two main reasons. Firstly, lipstick of this colour makes you look youthful and it also works well for a toned-down glamorous day look. Secondly, in the right shade and at the right angle, it perfectly matched the pink shades of her Rosa Bloom play suit.”
But before you think about applying your new candy-floss hue, be sure to properly prepare your lips, especially if they’re chapped, dry or flaky. Swipe over a wet cloth or soft toothbrush, or try a lip scrub, such as Barry M’s Lip Scrub in Mango, to create the perfect canvas.
Candy-pink lipstick what is it?
“Then, you want to apply a small, light layer of foundation to your lips to retain your lipstick. NARS’ Natural Radiant Long wear Foundation is a great option,” said Isa, adding that it is important to line the lips, particularly if you struggle with lipstick bleeding. “NYX Professional Make-up’s Suede Matte Lip Liner in Pink Lust, a hot pink, is a perfect match for candy-pink lipsticks.”
Once the pout is ready to go, you can add a final dusting of powder to help the lipstick stay in place, and then take a lip brush and carefully apply the pigment from the tube. When it comes to candy-pink lipstick colors, E.l.f.’s Liquid Matte Lipstick in Berry Sorbet is a perfect blue-based pink, while NYX Professional Makeup’s Macaron Lippie in Rose, a lavender-pink, is another top pick.
Otherwise, look to splurge a little on products such as Shiseido’s Lacquer Rouge in Disco, a pretty fuchsia, Charlotte Tilbury’s Hot Lips Lipstick in Electric Poppy, or MAC’s Satin Lipstick in Pink Nouveau. Why don’t you try candy-pink lipstick. to make your lips always look fresh.
