Beauty Trend Watch: Candy Pink Lips

What’s the best complement to the season’s super-bold lash look?

Decidedly pretty, sweet rosy lips, as seen on Blake Lively last night at a benefit event hosted by Chanel fine jewelry.

Angela Levin, the A-list makeup artist who created the look, wanted something that matched the stunning simplicity of the star’s diamond camellia brooch -- with dark, sexy eyes, but the rest of the face light and fresh.

To get the look, Angela lined the upper and lower lashes with shimmering black liner and stroked on three coats of mascara. She then created the perfect pink shade for lips by blending two shades (sometimes to get the best shade, you have to work a bit of magic!). First, she swiped on Chanel Rouge Allure in Mythic (a nude shade), then she layered on Chanel Rouge Allure Laque in Ming to get the perfect pink shade.
