Like the classic red lip, there’s something timeless about pink lipstick. Maybe it’s because you can’t really get it wrong and that it seems to work with any and all ensembles. It could also be the fact that there are various avenues you can take with a pretty pink lippie. You can go the bold and bright route, or you can opt for a softer, more demure shade. We want to know what side of the bread your butter is on, so we are presenting you with a classic lipstick debate: bright pink or light pink?
Benefits: This high-octane shade takes bold to a whole new level and is not a look to be ignored. Swiping on a bright pink shade is a great way to show off your brave side. It’s also a great way to spice up a plain or basic fashion look (little black dress, jean and white T-shirt combo, jersey dress, etc).
Benefits: A soft pink lipstick can be approached in the same way one would approach a nude shade. This low-key hue is great for toning down and balancing out a bold eye look or it can give your everyday makeup a boost (and make it look like you put in some effort). The beauty of a soft pink is that it’s ultra feminine and ultra classic, so it will always have a place in your makeup routine.
Considerations: Like nude lipstick, light pink shades have the ability to wash you out if not selected and applied correctly. Make sure you choose a shade that works with your skin tone and not against it! Find out what pink hue works best for you by checking out these tips.
