OSCAR HIGHLIGHT: BLOOMING ROSES
Spring is so close we can smell the floral bouquet in the air! And Oscar night highlighted the season’s pink lip trend beautifully in all shades + skin tones. Because as makeup artists, we know that pink is unquestionably the most universally-wearable + feminine shade. So I simplified things by showing you three skin tones (fair, tan + dark) and how three different shades of pink (pale, petal + bright) look on each. Here’s exactly what their makeup artists (including myself!) used:
FAIR: For a pale pink like Anna Paquin’s, try in Edition, the color I used Sunday night on her. For a petal pink like Emma Stone’s, makeup artist Rachel Goodwin used in Crystal Lilac. And for a bright pink lip like Michelle Williams’, makeup artist Angela Levin blended two shades together; in Paradis + Destinee.
TAN: For a pale pink like Selena Gomez’s, makeup artist Jenn Streicher used in 76. For a petal pink like Li Bingbing’s, unfortunately I couldn’t track down her makeup artist, but I’m obsessed with in Granache and it’s a close match. And for a bright pink lip like Cameron Diaz’s, her makeup artist Robin Fredriksz used in Love in Roses.
DARK: For a pale pink like Octavia Spencer’s, her makeup artist Valerie Noble used a light shimmer gloss like in Velvet. For a petal pink like Maya Rudolph’s, makeup artist Molly Stern used in Never Say Never with in Bonbon on top. And for a bright pink like Rashida Jones’s, makeup artist Jamie Greenberg used in Drama Queen.
Hope that helps you find the perfect pink shades that brighten your face and make your heart smile!
