Beauty Trend Spotting: The Perfect Pink Lip

Beauty Trend Spotting The Perfect Pink Lip

Spring usually comes in the form of florals or soft pastels, but this season, it’s all about the hot, poppy pink lip.

We’ve been seeing this flash of flush all over the red carpet-Shailene Woodley, Margot Robbie, Caitlin FitzGerald, Kaley Cuoco, Debby Ryan and Lea Michele have all been donning the gorgeous shade.

For a seriously bold look, go for a semi-matte lipstick, like the NARS Lipstick in Schiap. But first, prime your lips with a waterproof lip liner, like the Make Up For Ever Aqua Lip. This will make your lipstick truly budge-proof. After applying the lipstick, you can opt to add just a bit of gloss in the center of your lips for fullness.

To go a bit sheerer, a lip lacquer is the perfect product. It marries the beautiful pigment of a lipstick as well as the dewy finish of a gloss. Try the YSL Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Stain in Coril Fauve, a lovely, shiny pink. Plus, the gloss is super lightweight, so you won’t feel that icky greasy residue on your pout.

Just want a hint of pink tint? A lip stain is as subtle as it gets! We love Benefit Benetint (you can also use this as blush!) for the ultimate rosy-colored lip look. You can be as heavy-handed or light-handed as you’d like.

Kaley Cuoco In Rebecca Minkoff – Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards 2014

Kaley Cuoco In Rebecca Minkoff Pre-Fall 2014 – Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards 2014

Kaley Cuoco also attended the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards, hosted on Saturday (March 29) at the USC Galen Center in Los Angeles, California.

The actress, who recently showed off a new shorter ’do for spring, piled her freshly shorn locks into a messy topknot.

Her ensemble, however, trended far less spring-like than the summery exits seen on other starlets.

She wore a Rebecca Minkoff shorts-and-blazer Pre-Fall 2014 ensemble that came off rather dark and heavy, with its mix of black leather-like accents and graphic, tweedy prints. The oversized jacket also appeared in need of some tailoring.

The chunky black BCBG sandals didn’t relieve any of the heaviness. Not even Rona Pfeiffer jewels, a bright pink lippie and flushed cheek could perk up this look.

Yay or nay?

Kaley Cuoco In Philosophy – 22nd A Night At Sardi’s

Kaley Cuoco In Philosophy - 22nd A Night At Sardi’s

Kaley Cuoco joined Lizzy Caplan on the red carpet for the 22nd ‘A Night At Sardi’s’ held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on Wednesday (March 26) in Beverly Hills, California.

The actress wore a Philosophy white draped high-low layered dress with beaded details which was gathered to give it some shape.

I wanted to get on board with this but I am not a fan of the silhouette.

Effortlessly styled, she added two pendant necklaces, nude Jimmy Choo sandals and a Ashlyn’d perspex clutch which revealed not only that the actress carries her Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick in Ballet Pink with her, but also that she travels with a large wad of cash.

Kaley Cuoco In Jonathan Simkhai – QVC 5th Annual Red Carpet Style Event

Kaley Cuoco In Jonathan Simkhai - QVC 5th Annual Red Carpet Style Event

Kaley Cuoco attended the QVC 5th Annual Red Carpet Style event held at The Four Seasons Hotel on Friday (February 28) in Beverly Hills, California.

The actress wore a Spring 2014 jacquard silver-and-cream striped crop-top and skirt with a reflective textured finish from up-and-coming designer Jonathan Simkhai.

Opting for complementary silver accessories including Aldo ‘Margetts’ metallic sandals and an Ann Taylor ‘Jewel’ satin clutch, she completed the look with wavy tresses.

I think I prefer the runway dress to Kaley’s two-piece ensemble, as I love with the figure-skimming A-line silhouette.

Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting from the CBS comedy series ‘The Big Bang Theory’ made a guest appearance on the ‘Late Show with David Letterman’ on Monday (February 24) to talk about her recent wedding.

Opting for a white dress, the actress wore a Camilla and Marc ‘Alteration’ dress from the Resort 2014 collection featuring a long-sleeved top and a slanted hem enhancing the swing of the skirt.

Opting for a black manicure, black Jimmy Choo ‘Rocks’ sandals, one stud earring and bracelets by W. Britt, a Dalla Nonna necklace and an EF Collection ring, she completed her look with wavy tresses.

Do you like this ‘here comes the spring’ look?

Kaley Cuoco In Vera Wang – 2014 SAG Awards

Kaley Cuoco In Vera Wang - 2014 SAG Awards

Kaley Cuoco also attended the 2014 SAG Awards, held on Saturday evening (January 18) at The Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California.

Newly married, ‘The Big Bang Theory’ starlet was perhaps still channeling wedding-day bliss in a dove-grey, strapless mermaid gown by Vera Wang.

The classic bustier neckline cascaded into hand-draped silk tulle detail, accented by large bows, and a silk organza pleated skirt.

She accessorized with a metallic Ferragamo clutch, Lorraine Schwartz statement earrings and bracelet, and Jimmy Choo ‘Raven’ platform heels.

While this was undeniably a fairytale dress, she edged up the ensemble with a dark, moody manicure, kohl-rimmed, smoky blue eyes and long ombre waves.

Too much, or just enough?
