From the it-girls attending hot parties like last month’s Green Tie Ball to the models strutting the catwalks at New York Fashion Week, it’s easy to spot trendy makeup. And on trend this season is a penchant for a pink pout.
While today’s pink is far from a demure shade you might choose for everyday wear, it’s the perfect lip hue for a night out on the town. “The hot pink lip is a derivative of the red lip with a more laidback feel to compliment some fall fashion trends,” shares Neiman Marcus Cosmetics Manager Doug Meekhof. Furthering the emphasis on a statement lip is the idea of minimalism. “A clean, fresh face keeps the attention on the true statement piece: your lips,” says Julie Saunders, marketing director, Saks Fifth Avenue Michigan Avenue. The names of some of these dynamic shades are as appealing as the lip colors – Candy Yum-Yum, All Fired Up, Flat Out Fabulous, Tart & Trendy, to name a few.
