Go Pink Be Fierce

A friend of mine asked how she could get a magenta pink lip, a lip color that is commonly worn by Pop Rock diva Rihanna. This look is pretty simple to do but a little harder to pull of, because you must have a fierce attitude to wear with it lol!

When wearing the magenta lip keeping that the main focus is key, just like with a red lip.  Keep your eyes simple with some strong black pencil lining your eyes along with lots of mascara, then the face will look balanced with your lips being the focal point.

Now to get that fantastic magenta color you should first line your lips with a pencil that is close in color to that of the lipstick you’ll use. After you’ve lined your lips then fill in the inside of your lips with the broad side of the lip pencil ( this will help prevent bleeding & will keep the color on your lips way longer).  Now use a lip brush to put the lipstick on, the lip brush is best because your lipstick application will be more precise and the outcome will be more polished looking. You can keep your lip matte during the day and to add more pop for the evening just put a clear gloss on top…
