Rihanna's Hot Pink Lips Tutorial

Applying bright hot pink lips is great for a night out! Wouldn't try this for day:) Here are my steps for applying any bright coloured lippie and getting that full lips look without a lipliner!

1: Apply powder around your lips - NOT on top of your lips. This will prevent bleeding of lipstick.

2. Get a gold shimmer shadow such as Stila "Oasis" or MAC "Goldmine" and apply this to your cupid's bow and center of your lower lips for a great highlight.

You can stop here and just apply lipgloss and you're lips will look nice and full already! But read on if you're game enough to wear some hot pink!

3. Apply your lipstick straight from the tube or if the lipstick has lost its sharpness, then its best to apply with a lip brush to get a perfect edge. Wipe the edges of your mouth to clean it up. Then pop your fingers into your mouth and pull it out (to avoid lipstick on your teeth!)

Reapply the gold shimmer highlight to your top and bottom lips. Don't apply too much on the outer edges otherwise you might look like you're drooling or just ate some KFC chicken!

MAC Hello Kitty Lipstick "Straying"

Rihanna has a more fuschia colour on her lips. You can try Revlon Wild Orchid!

TIP: Apply your foundation and makeup first before applying bright lipstick. Applying foundation after your lips will mess up all your hard work!

I love the shimmer on cupid's bow trick! It's super sexy and looks great with just chapstick. But your hot pink color is actually better than Rihanna's!
