Archive for the ‘Hot Pink Lip Gloss’ Category
I get a lot of questions about the hot pink lips I’m wearing in my Twitter avatar, so I figured I would go ahead and do a quick lip tutorial for you guys. Everything I use to put this together can be found at any drugstore, and all these products are less than $10 each!
For this look you will need:
NYX Lipliner – Currant (for a deeper hot pink) or Dolly Pink (for a lighter hot pink)
Covergirl LipPerfection Lipstick- Spellbound
NYC Liquid Shine lip gloss- Fashion Ave Fuchsia
Once you’re done, just pucker up and prepare to bask in the compliments as your pretty pink pout gets you noticed!
Kim Kardashian sported this look at the premiere for The Orphan and I freaking loooooved it! The winged eyeliner and hot pink lips are just gorgeous, so I had to replicate the look on my own!

Stila Pressed Powder – Dark
Nars Blush- Oasis
Urban Decay Primer Potion- Sin
Stila Eye Shadow- Starlight
L’Oreal Lineur Intense Liquid Liner- Carbon Black

This is the nighttime mermaid look. Its the first of 3 mermaid inspired tutorials.
I found this ad for one of my favorite shows – Samantha Who – in an issue of US Weekly last month and couldn’t wait to try this hot pink look out for myself. Since I’m not feeling quite up to doing video tutorials just yet, I went ahead and created a little step by step guide on how to achieve a similar look.
I wore this to work a few days ago and got tons of compliments on my make-up, so don’t be afraid to try it out – even if it is hot pink. Live a little bitches!
- A good eyelid primer like Urban Decay Primer Potion
- Stila Eye Shadow Pans in Moonlight (shimmering white), Cloud (shimmering neutral gray) and Black Cat (shimmering soft black)
- Black liquid eye liner. My favorite is L’Oreal Line Intense in Carbon Black
- A rich, black mascara like Benefit Bad Gal Lash or L’oreal Voluminous
- Make Up Forever Aqua Eyes liner in 01 (black)
Brushes: - Sephora medium size all over eye-shadow brush
- Sephora rounded crease brush
After applying your primer, use the all over eye shadow brush to dust the entire eye lid with Moonlight, or any other shimmery white shadow you chose. Then, use the same brush to apply Cloud to the lid using a dabbing motion. With the rounded crease brush, sweep a small amount of Black Cat to the crease, starting at the outer corner of the eye working your way inward. If you overdo it, sweep a touch of the white shadow over the lid to tone the darker colors down a bit. Using your liquid liner, draw a medium thick line across the top lash line. Line the inner rim of the lower lash line with Make Up Forever Aqua Eyes liner in 01 (black) paying special attention to the outer and inner corners. Finish by curling lashes and applying two coats of mascara.
Cheeks: Sweep a light, shimmering pink blush across cheeks. I used Nars blush in Oasis (shock!) but you can use any light pink. Whatever you do, don’t try to use a dark pink blush with this look or you’ll end up looking crazy. And not in the sexy, mysterious way either. I mean in the “I stockpile old newspapers and cats” sorta way. *shudder*
- DuWop Prime Venom
- Urban Decay 24/7 lipliner in Envious (a medium berry color)
- Urban Decay Pocket Rocket Lip Gloss in Doug (shimmering hot pink)
Apply your DuWop Prime Venom balm to the entire lip area and allow to set. Avoid using a cream based primer because it’ll alter the color of your lip liner, turning it from hot pink to a hot mess. Next, line and fill in lips with the Urban Decay Lipliner, and blend. Then apply a generous coat of gloss, adding an extra amount to the center of your lower lip for added fullness.
And viola! Now hit the streets and bask in the compliments!
