FOTD: Fendi SS 2011 Inspired Bright Lips

Not surprisingly, bright lips are in again this Spring/ Summer season and I had to put my spin on the look using some very affordable but fabulous products. It's a super simple, yet very polished look that when done right, suits almost everybody. This is my interpretation:

I kept the eyes quite simple using a shimmery warm gold cream eyeshadow and a sparkly brown from my Sleek Chaos palette to emphasize the lashline (it seems however that I must have forgotten to blend it properly afterwards ;). I put a fair coating of mascara on, added a hint of blush... and painted that bright pink coral on my lips!

Products used:
Smashbox Photo Finish Light Foundation Primer
Coastal Scents Honey Light Flawless Finish mineral foundation
Inglot Perfect Concealer stick in green
MAC Studio Finish concealer in NW20
Stila Cheek Color in 'Hint'
Benefit Creaseless Cream Eyeshadow/Liner in 'Slippin 'n Dippin'
Sleek i-Divine palette in 'Chaos'
Maybelline Full 'N Soft mascara in Very Black
Wet'n'Wild Silk Finish lipstick in 'Hot Paris Pink'

I will follow up this post with my recommendations for brightly colored lip products ranging from the boldest hues to some more toned-down options, all from very affordable brands. There's also going to be another swatch of the Wet'n'Wild lippie in slightly different lighting conditions, so stay tuned! Do you do bright lipstick for Spring and Summer?


  1. You have such a beautiful face and incredible bone structure, that never ceases to amaze me!
    And you do rock that bright lip!
    Of course I do wear bright lips - and not only in Spring and Summer :)

  2. Bright lips never fails! Love this look very pretty.

  3. @Marie Ella: Awww, hun :) You look amazing in orange lips!

    @Hell Notes for Beauty: So true, bold lippie is an absolute staple in any girl's make-up arsenal! x

  4. What a pretty look! Your eyes are absolutely amazing!

  5. Love this look on you!:)
    Fendi look was one of my favourites, very similar to DVS by the way. They actually pressed the pigment into the lips, I know the exact products that were used if you are interested:
    MAC pro process magenta chromagraphic pencil - Lining and filling the lip
    Magenta madness pigment - Brushed over the pencil for a neon pink matte lip

  6. I love your hot pink lips! <3 Suits you <3 so pretty :3
    I don't think that shade compliments me too well >< although I love that color!

  7. that cream shadow is pretty...I have to go find that!

  8. Oops, that was how to create the looks from DVS, not Fendi. Sorry.

  9. What a pretty eye shade.:D

    I love bright lips!:D
