Bright colored nail polish was one thing but now there are lipsticks of every color of the rainbow. It is almost impossible to find a girl not wearing a bright shade of lipstick during a night on the town. What is it that made lipstick the thing to be wearing?
There are so many different colors of lipstick that you could choose one based on your skin tone. Oddly enough, bright red lipstick looks good on pale people because it makes them stand out. On a person with tanner skin, it stands out but not as much. When you go to any makeup store or counter an associate will help you to find your best match. If it does not look as bright as you would like in the bottle, odds are when you put it on it will look a lot brighter than you expected.
Many celebrities have been seen with brightly colored lips as of lately. Celebrities such as Sarah Jane Crawford, Alina Baikova, and Kaya Scodelario have made bright red lipstick such a big trend. Christina Milian has worn black lipstick, and Beyonce wore plum colored lipstick in her new Haunted music video. Beyonce has been loving the bright lipstick as a matter of fact. In her blow music video she wears neon orange lipstick and it was said to be “very entertaining and sexy from start to finish. Beyonce and her girls looked like they were having so much fun in all the scenes…” (Brightlipsticks.com).
