Uhoh. It's the color that used to make me grimace when I'd see it amongst my grandmother Estelle's makeup collection. But I'm not grimacing anymore. Over the past two or three years, bright lips have been the new fashion accessory. It's nothing new, I know. Jcrew been doin' it for a grip. Well, it's finally crept its way into my life. I love it. And not only for spring! Typically we think muted lip colors for fall/winter, but I love the idea of muted clothes with a bright lip. Gets me all excited. I especially LOOOOVE pairing pink lips with army green. Just too good. And if you have reddish hair like top left, you absolutely must try the pink lip thing.
So what do you think? Too much? Something only these fancy-pants celebrities can do? I think not. I keep thinking of regular people I know who would really look great with some bright lips. Why not try something new and have a little fun! Would you rock it? It certainly wasn't too much for my grandmother Estelle! I so wish I had a photo of her with her pink lips to insert here.
And in honor of the 80's pink lip...
