Oscar 2010 Beauty Trend: Bold Pink Lips

Hollywood glamour was all over the Oscar red carpet last night! I don't think there was anyone's look that I was underwhelmed by. I thought many of the women looked fabulous but the clear winner for me was Sandra Bullock!

When I first saw the cameras on her, I immediately fell in love with her entire look. She was definitely dressed to win in her silver beaded and embroidered column gown by Marchesa. From head to toe she looked absolutely exquisite! I'm glad we didn't see the classic red lip which would have been an obvious choice. Bullock's bright bold pink lips added an element of surprise and radiance. 


This photo of me was taken a few weeks ago at my friend's charity event. I usually do a red lip when I want to glam it up but I was bored of the same old look. After seeing so many pink lips on the red carpet, this is one beauty trend I'll be rockin' for Spring!

Looking hot!
I didn't watch the Oscars (as I was working) but from the little I've seen I admit I love Miley Cyrus' dress.

You look Stunning, as usual!
I too have been wearing a bold pink lip! I absolutely love it!
Do you wear a Bold Pink look with just about anything (Clothing), or only when you are wearing black or white?
I've played it safe so far, not sure how I feel about it!

Thanks Ladies! My wardrobe is pretty basic anyways so a bold pink lip would be good with anything I own lol. For day I'd probably opt for a stain or a gloss but for night velvet matte texture all the way!

I'd say if you are into wearing a lot of prints or bold patterns I'd stick to a neutral lip and save the bold lips for neutral tones. :)
