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.

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..

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?
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.

While the fashion world is getting ready to show their Fall/Winter 2011 collections, the rest of the world is eagerly anticipating Spring! What better way to beat the winter blues, than by jumping into the warmer months with a bold, colorful lip?
Check out the bold lips that were all over the Spring/Summer 2011 shows:
In Milan, Jill Sander’s models wore a matte magenta lipstick.
At the Marni show, Tom Pecheux decided on a bright orange lip (he used MAC Morange lipstick).
Hot pink and coral lips were seen on the Fendi runway in Milan.
At Diane Von Furstenberg, James Kaliardos used MAC’s Pro Chromographic pencil in Process Magenta with MAC’s Magenta Madness pigment layered over.
One of my favorite makeup trends to emerge on the Spring 2011 runways is the “temple to cheek” blush, spotted everywhere from Madrid to Milan. In most cases, makeup artists applied color in a “C” shape from the model’s temples to the apples of their cheeks, and blended well for a seamless transition. Love it!!
At the Moschino show in Milan, models wore orange blush that not only was applied in the C shape, but was also blended onto the eyelids for a monochrome look.
I love the rosy pink blush at Christian Siriano’s show in New York. This is probably my favorite variation of the trend.
Richard Nicoll’s show during Londons Fashion Week featured models wearing an ochre colored blush applied just above the temples, and around onto the cheeks.
Edition by Georges Chakra showed a much more subdued and wearable version of the trend.
Hot pink was the color of choice on Lydia Delgado’s runway in Madrid.
