Its hot and its bright.
And just so right!
Just look at those lips. Aren't they absolutely perfect. There, I've said it. I'm absolutely and utterly in love with fuschia lips right now. That traffic stopping lip color. I think its the best thing to have happened to my lips since my coral lip fixation.
This trend keeps cropping up from time to time and hits the sweet spot with me everytime. You'd think I would be bored of this color considering that its not exactly a new trend. But nope.
The color seems to work on any complexion. Its just such a bright happy color and can add that much needed pop of color to an otherwise grey dress.
Fuschia lips are much more feminine compared to the dominatrix appeal of red. They can give the girlie, flirty and young feel to a woman of any age.
This trend first appeared on the runway for Marc Jacobs S/S 10 show and since then has never quite left it. And I hope it doesn't. The world is a much better place with fuschia lips.
I like to keep my make up low-key when using this lip color to allow the lipstick to be the star. Kohl-rimmed eyes and a matte foundation usually do it for me. My favorite is Maybelline Colorsensational - Fuschia Fever. So go be pinkalicious!
You know you want it.
Special thanks to my friend Anna for being such a gorgeous model for this piece.
