If you choose a bright red, coral or hot pink lip shade, and make it the focal point of your makeup, choose complementary makeup that won’t upstage the bright lip. You might want to go bold read with the bright red lipstick – MAC Viva Glam Cyndi ($14, maccosmetics.com)
Pair bright lipstick shades with pale pink blush. Then pick cooler, more pastel shades of eye shadows like lilacs and mauves. They’re great shades that won’t overpower the lip. Finish it off with plenty of eye liner and mascara.
The hot item of the season is Makeup Forever’s HD Microfinish Blush ($25, hsn.com). It’s a cream blush with 14 shades to pick from- each blush creates a subtle, natural flush of color on your cheeks without making them seem too dolled up.
Choose a lipstick shade that is not too over powering so the focus is on your cheek. A high shine lip gloss instead of a lipstick will work nicely.
