I am currently obsessed with this pastel story by Jamie Nelson from Elle Mexico June 2011! It makes me want pink hair and eyebrows with every ounce of my soul.

Lady Gaga is taking her role as MAC Vivia Glam Spokesperson to the next level with her new campaign “Glam This Way,” dedicated to raising awareness about AIDS. It’s no secret that Gaga fans are some of the most dedicated super fans out there, so she is relying on her “Little Monsters” to spread the word about this important issue.
To do so, she is inviting everyone to log onto VivaGlam.com to upload a photo of themselves. Next, spread the message of AIDS awareness throughout all the social networking sites and the more you do, the bigger your photo will appear on the site.
In the end, the photos will be printed onto a couture creation that her fashion stylist and best friend, Nicola Formichetti will create and Gaga will wear her fan’s faces on her body.
Remember when bold lips were popping up all over the Spring/Summer 2011 runways (here)? From Jil Sander to Fendi and Diane Von Furstenberg, it was obvious, hot pink (and we are talkin’ hot) was in.
Usually celebrities makeup artists will pick up on a runway trend and tame it down for their clients in order to be more appropriate for the red carpet. Not this time! As evidenced by the growing number of celeb faces wearing neon pink lips lately, it’s apparent that bolder=better.
Kelly Osbourne is a huge fan of the trend, as she has been seen rockin’ hot pink lips multiple times over the past several months. On the left, she wears a bright fuschia lipstick at the Tribeca Film Festival and on the right, she pairs her neon pout with a fierce cat eye and ponytail for the Maxim Hot 100 party.
Jessica Szohr at the Love, Wedding Marriage premiere this month. This color looks great on her tan skin.
Gisele Bundchen at the Robin Hood Foundation Gala. She kept the rest of her look very simple, letting her lips take center stage.
Another fan of the trend, Emma Stone! I love the pop of pink against her pale skin. On the left, she wore fuschia lipstick at the Met Gala, which looked fantastic against her muted Lanvin dress. On the right she was spotted at the Conde Nast Traveler Annual Hot Party with a slightly different shade of pink and a swipe of black liquid liner.
Milla Jovovich at the AmFAR Gala in Cannes this month.
Kristen Dunst at the AmFAR Gala in Cannes.
Taylor Swift finally took a break from the red lip she lovesss to wear on the red carpet and decided to go with hot pink instead. We like.
Kat Graham at the Young Hollywood Awards.
Jennifer Hudson at her album release party.
Gwen Stefani chose to wear hot pink lipstick and a black smokey eye to the Tree of Life premiere in Cannes. You’d think this combination would leave you looking like a $2 hooker but I’m surprised at how well she pulled it off! Only Gwen..
Get The Look:
The best thing about this trend is that it is extremely versatile- every skintone can pull off a bright pink lip! From paler girls, like Emma Stone, to olive skinned beauties like Jessica Szohr, to deep complexions like Jennifer Hudson, it looks amazing on everyone!
Check out my favorite hot pink lipsticks:
-Obssesive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar in Anime is my absolute favorite product for this look!! It’s so pigmented and bright. The perfect neon pink.
-Illamasqua’s Avenge Lipstick is a creamy yet matte hot pink.
-NARS Carthage Pure Matte Lipstick is a fantastic, full coverage hot pink.
-MAC Girl About Town is a little bit of a deeper hot pink. It’s opaque but still as a bit of a sheen to it, if you’re not one for matte lips.
What do you think of hot pink lips? Will you be wearing them this summer or leaving it to the celebs?

Not familiar with Cargo? Unable to Choose? I Reccommend:
Cargo bronzers are some of my favorite bronzers on the market. They even have a water resistant option so you can look sun-kissed on the beach or at the pool, without the melanoma!
Plant Love is Cargo’s 100% natural makeup line. The products contain no parabans, synthetic fragrance, synthetic dyes, petro chemicals or phthalates. The packaging is even made entirely out of corn!
I love Cargo’s blushes especially for darker skintones! Laguna is a favorite among makeup artists.
If you’ve ever wanted to look like you have a contagious disease festering on your lips, you’re in luck! Violent Lips is a new product which can do just that.
Instead of swiping on 1 single boring color, you can now tattoo your lips with various designs such as cheetah, roses and leopard print. The tattoos are temporary and last 4-8 hours, enough time to ignite some rumors that you are actively culturing a virus on your pucker.
Each package of decals comes with 3 applications and cost $14.95
What Do You Think? Would You Wear Lip Tattoos?
Woah, Megan Fox looks… refreshed?
In her newest ads for Giorgio Armani’s Regenessence Skincare line, Miss Fox is looking a little different than we’re used to seeing her. Too much botox? Too much photoshop? What the hell happened to her eyebrows?!
Can we also talk about why a 24 year old is fronting a national campaign for anti-aging skin care? Regenessence’s Youth Regenerator and Rejuvenating Cream are for reducing the appearance of wrinkles, refining texture and improving skin tone.
Megan Fox should stick to selling makeup and underwear because if I were to pick which skincare line to buy based off of their celebrity spokesperson, I’d choose Cate Blanchett for SK-II
Cindy Crawford (45), Cate Blancett (41), Sharon Stone (53)
While the dresses were predominately nude, the lips at the 2011 Metropolitan Museum of Art’s annual Costume Institute Gala were anything but!
Bold lips have been on our trend forecast for Spring (here) ever since they popped up all over the S/S 2011 runways. While the celebs definitely rocked the bold at the Met Gala, I just expected a little brightness as well. Emma Stone and Elizabeth Banks (below) went all out with the brights, but many of the other stars opted for deep red lips.
