Ready with your hot pink lipstick shade? We’ve got you some fun combinations for you to try!
It’s time to go monochromatic! Monochromatic makeup involves using colours from the same colour scheme. The combination may sound a little too-much-of-the-same-colour, but trust us, it’s not. Acing this look is no science; keep your eyeshadow light using a pastel pink shade while adding a pop of bright hot pink like the Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick – Romantic shade on your lips.
The pink-on-pink combination with natural pink eyes and hot pink lips creates a perfect harmony of style and elegance.
Irrespective of the season, this look can be worn any time of the year. It is perfect for those who prefer keeping the makeup look constant. The combination of icy silver and hot pink speaks of glamour and poise. Try the Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lipstick - Flaming Fuchsia lipstick shade for an effortless and comfortable feel of up to 12 hours.
They say, “All that glitters is not gold”. Well, in the case of makeup, it is! A bit standout than the ordinary, this combination of colours work best for party looks. The key to acing this look is to apply dark brown eyeshadow at the outer corner of your eyes while increasing the depth along the creases.
Then add a glittery gold eyeshadow in the centre and blend in well to get that smoky eye look. Line up your upper lash line with black eyeliner and to finish off the look, add a pop of hot pink lipstick like the shade Pathfinder from the Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick X Pinks Edition.
The combination of gradient eyeshadow and raspberry pink lipstick purely resonates elegance. Achieving the gradient eyeshadow might require some practice, but once you ace it, there’s no going back. Always start by applying primer, foundation and concealer as needed and set with a translucent powder.
Apply subtle burgundy shade on the outer corner of the eyes and blend along the crease line. Then apply nude-brown shade on the inside or centre, close to the outer edges followed by beige shade on the inner corners. Blend the edges of all three colours well to create a gradient look. Finish off with winged eyeliner and add a pop of colour on the lips with a hot pink shade.
Try the shade Pink My Red from the Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Matte collection for a perfect look. Be it college, work or party, this look works well for any occasion.
Embrace the boldness in you with a touch of drama. The combination of mermaid eyeshadow with bright Fuchsia pink lips is definitely something out of the box that will make you stand out from the crowd. The look may seem a little complicated or confusing at the beginning, but then practice makes one perfect!
The eye look can be achieved with a combination of baby pink, cobalt blue and aqua green eyeshadows in the same order from crease to the upper lash line. Blend the colours well and finish off with a stroke of winged eyeliner. Apply a hot pink or bright pink lipstick like the Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lipstick shade Mesmerizing Magenta. Wear this look for parties or occasions and watch heads turn.
If you are someone who likes to keep it minimal, then a coat of hot pink lipstick with natural or nude eye makeup works best too. Before applying any lipstick, make sure your lips are smooth and plumped. Use a lip scrub to get rid of chapped skin and then apply lip balm to moisturise them. Use a lip liner to define the natural lip line and avoid your lipstick from smudging out. This step helps you get an even and perfect lipstick layer.
