The Lip Color You’ll Covet This Spring

Take a look at this wearable runway beauty trend through makeup artist Carmindy's eyes.

It’s on, ladies: another fun filled crazy month of fashion shows for spring 2013, and what I’ve been seeing I really like.

Think pink this coming spring, as we’ll see tones of petal pink hues ranging from the shocking to the sweet. At Calvin Klein, pretty rosy pink lips and dark brows looked incredible with the black, white and cream palette of the clothes. Ralph Lauren got really cheeky with a swirl of ripe flush on the apples of cheeks, a look that will not only look amazing on all women, but is a fast way to look fresh and youthful.

At Rachel Zoe, a berry-stained deep pink lip was a sexy new twist that will look fabulous with a tan when the weather heats up. At Oscar De La Renta, shocking pink was splashed on smiles that stole the show.

Marc Jacobs, always known for being cutting edge in the beauty department, went with a pale nude pink mouth that balanced 60s shadow and a super strong brow. Here, I’d stick with the nude lips and go with black mascara for a more wearable look.

Charlotte Ronson chose pink cheeks and lips on her models to summon up a romantic fantasy as the girls sauntered down the runway in floral patterned sundresses. This is the look I’ll be rocking when the time comes. The best part about pink? It’s universally flattering and keeps us all feeling girly!
