While cherry red says "fun, fabulous and fierce", it takes a pretty edgy style to pull it off in the daytime (think Gwen Stefani). For the rest of us, we need a daytime go-to shade. Cue soft pink. Every skin tone from dark to fair can pull this shade off as long as it is semi-sheer with a hint of gloss—go matte and your lips will look chalky rather than cherub-like. You can even use a dusting of pink blush to get a gorgeous sheer hint of pink if you don't fancy wearing a lipstick or gloss! Check out these light pink lip looks:
Ciara has the right shade going on for her skin tone and hair color, although her lips are a bit matte looking. To modernize her look for spring 2013, she could gently pat on some lip gloss to get a soft shine going on those gorgeous full lips.
Our model looks stunning in pearlescent pink lipstick that matches her glowing complexion.
How will you wear soft pink this season?
