Candy Painted Lips

A trend that we began to notice in 2011 that will definitely carry over in 2012 is the candy paint lip. Nontraditional lip color that's making its way off the runways and magazine pages and into our make up bags. It's a great way to spice up your look without doing much of a change to your make up regimen. The eyelids and nails aren't the only thing that can have fun with colors. The trick is wearing these funky colors without looking like a complete clown.

1. Get an awesome mascara. You'll definitely want to pump up your lashes to build contrast between your eyes and lips. Stick to black, brown, or navy. 

2. Don't be afraid to wear face makeup, but avoid blush. Tinted moisturizer, translucent powder, and a touch of concealer are fine, but you don't want to look like you're part of the circus. 

3. Reapply the right way. You want your color to last all day, but that may require a quick redo after meals. Be sure to blot your lips, dab a touch of concealer around your lip line, and swipe away.
