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.

Margot Robbie In Paper London – Jameson Empire Awards 2014

Margot Robbie In Paper London - Jameson Empire Awards 2014

Margot Robbie attended the Jameson Empire Film Awards 2014 held at The Grosvenor House Hotel on Sunday (March 30) in London, England, where she picked up the Best Newcomer Award.

Still working her brunette ‘do, the actress wore a Paper London Spring 2014 rich-red off-the-shoulder jumpsuit.

The look, which features a clean-lined silhouette and relaxed wide-leg trousers plus a V-neckline adding a plunge for a more daring twist on this staple piece, was styled with a black waistband and black sparkling clutch.

A perfect alternative to a dress or are the pants too long?

Solange Knowles & Margot Robbie In Hugo Boss – Boss Hong Kong Grand Opening

Solange Knowles & Margot Robbie In Hugo Boss - Hugo Boss Hong Kong Grand Opening

HUGO BOSS hosted an event to celebrate the grand openings of its two new BOSS Stores at Central Building and on Canton Road in Hong Kong.

The ribbon-cutting ceremony to mark the openings was attended by Solange Knowles and Margot Robbie.

Solange Knowles: Still working that directional ‘fro, the singer donned a shimmering gold filled jacquard sleeveless Boss dress from the Fall 2014 collection. The pops of red really enliven the look, giving it an edge. The rest of the styling included a black box Rauwolf clutch and Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist’ black sandals.

Margot Robbie: The actress’s look was considerably more classic, working a timeless old-Hollywood screen-siren look. She also wore a Boss dress from the Fall 2014 collection; the black embroidered mesh design cut at a modest tea length was styled with black pumps, a black clutch, IPPOLITA’s Stardust branch reef ring and a punchy pink lip, which is definitely the trend of the week.

Miu Miu Fall 2014 Front Row

Miu Miu FROW

A host of stars, including many faces of the brand, took to the front row of Miu Miu’s Fall 2014 show in Paris, France this morning (March 5) during Paris Fashion Week.

Rihanna: After looking chic in Chanel yesterday, she looked a hot mess today at Miu Miu. Over-styled and overworked in garish colours, nothing from the knees up is appealing to me. She wore a Prada red nappa leather and black shearling overcoat, paired with a tobacco and yellow intarsia-knit cashmere sweater and purple silk scarf, all from the Prada Fall 2014 collection.

Lea Seydoux: The French beauty cleanses my eyes from Rihanna’s car-crash Couture, wearing a pretty pastel look featuring a petal-pink printed silk blouse and ‘Ciré’ vinyl pencil skirt with Jimmy Choo bronze heels. While the look reads spring, it is so very pretty and styled effortlessly that I just can’t help but fall in love with it.

Margot Robbie In Saint Laurent – Vanity Fair Oscar Party 2014

Margot Robbie In Saint Laurent - Vanity Fair Oscar Party 2014

Margot Robbie was pretty much unrecognisable at the 2014 Vanity Fair Oscar party on Sunday (March 2) in West Hollywood, California.

That’s because the blonde is no longer. She’s now a working a dark brunette shade.

She gave the new hue its first outing by wearing a Saint Laurent black strapless gown.

With enriching embellishments on the bodice and a bow detail at the back, she accessorized with Forevermark diamonds.

I hope the new hair will grow on me soon.

Margot Robbie In Elie Saab – 2014 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards

Margot Robbie In Elie Saab - 2014 Critics' Choice Movie Awards

Margot Robbie took to the red carpet for the 19th Annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards held at Barker Hangar on Thursday (January 16) in Santa Monica, California.

During awards season, we get gown fever, but the Australian actress opted for something different on this occasion, wearing an Elie Saab Spring 2014 black jumpsuit featuring long black lace sleeves which she styled with an Alexander McQueen black clutch and Ileana Makri jewels.

The look is effortless, with a laidback vibe with her tresses blown out and a nude lip colour giving her a flawless finish.

After a slight wobble at the London premiere of ‘The Wolf of Wall Street,’ it appears she’s back to her best.

My only quibble is that I wish the pants were a bit shorter.

Margot Robbie In Gucci – 2014 Golden Globe Awards

Margot Robbie In Gucci - 2014 Golden Globes

 

Margot Robbie was one of the first stars down the red carpet of the 2014 Golden Globe Awards in Los Angeles this evening (January 12).

The ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ actress wore a one-of-a-kind cream Gucci silk crepe gown with embroidered crystal and emerald gemstones.

This is such a ‘wow’ moment for the star. The plunging neckline and high slit are just the right amount of sexy, while the white is superbly chic, and the gem detailing is completely unique.

Green Christian Louboutin ‘Volpi’ sandals, rosy cheeks and lips plus a chic updo complete this stunning look.

Margot Robbie In Oscar de la Renta – ‘The Wolf Of Wall Street’ London Premiere

Margot Robbie In Oscar de la Renta - 'The Wolf Of Wall Street' London Premiere

Margot Robbie attended the UK premiere of ‘The Wolf Of Wall Street’ held at the Odeon Leicester Square on Thursday (January 9) in London.

My first reaction to this was, “oh dear”.

While I applaud the newcomers fearless approached when it comes to her carpet choices, I don’t believe – by any stretch of the imagination – that she manages to pull of this Oscar de la Renta Pre-Fall 2014 gown with a tulip shaped skirt.

In fact I’m struggling to picture who could, as I don’t find the silhouette to be particularly flattering; the material is so heavy that it’s stretching at the seams, and for someone as hot as Margot she comes off quite boxy here.

A side pose and a seamless bra could have saved this look.

The only thing I like here are her metallic bronze Christian Louboutin ‘So Kate’ pumps plus her hair and makeup.
