Friday Night Painting Party: Fuchsia Lipstick
Painting your pout red is surely the most classic approach to pulling attention to your pucker, but if you prefer playing with a more of-the-moment hue, pull out a tube of fuchsia lipstick, gloss, or stain and go at it. From runways like Dior, Prabal Gurung, and Oscar de la Renta, and slicked across the lips of celebrities like Jennifer Hudson, Coco Rocha and Olivia Wilde, fuchsia is the latest incarnation of a fully painted lip, and a very modern veer away from a classic red.
If you’re looking for a more detailed look than simply slicking on the pink/purple hue, try dabbing the lips with concealer to erase your natural color, as well as highlighting your cupids bow for extra ethereal oomph. Then line the lips with a neutral or matching shade, and carefully paint on your favorite fuchsia. Blotting will help achieve that of-the-moment ink stamped look that everyone is so wild about — and voila! You’re ready to go.
