Candy-colored lips make for a delicious sight

Ever since Katy Perry burst on the scene several years ago, there has been a tasty trend seeping into the world of makeup. The singer crafted a signature look by boosting her beauty routine with bright candy hues for a look that is all her own. Fortunately for the rest of us, some aspects of Katy Perry's style are wearable for the rest of us, as anyone can use her candy-colored lip makeup to achieve a fun and flirty look.

Candy-colored lipstick is perfect for summer, but you've first got to find the right color for you. Bold berries or vibrant pinks are classic choices, as they offer the red tones that many are comfortable trying out. If you're a bit more daring, you may want to look into options like an orange creamsicle color, which will have peachy hues that could work well with your bronze-y summer makeup. 

Products like Sothys Hydra-Glide Lipstick offer long-lasting coverage in a variety of popular colors. Not only will you be able to embrace the candy-inspired trend with colors like Grenadine or Prune, but you'll also get to rock a flawless, smooth pout. 

Lip gloss and lipstick are definitely among the essential products you need for a summer getaway, so be sure to shop around for a color that will have you looking fun and feeling great no matter where you are.

Amber Rose looks flawless with glossy pink lipstick

One woman who knows a few things about turning heads is Amber Rose, and the model isn’t shy about showing a little skin. Recently, Rose was seen on the arm of rapper and fiance Wiz Khalifa during Memorial Day weekend in Las Vegas. She wore a low-cut white tank top and large gold hoop earrings as she waved to photographers at the Palms pool.

Rose is renowned for her buzz cut look, which gives her an edginess while she maintains her sexiness. However, Rose has beautiful facial features that she frequently accents with top-quality cosmetics as well – it’s not all about her (lack of) hair!

At the Palms pool, Rose piled on the black mascara to give her peepers a dramatic look. She kept it simple on the rest of her face, topping off her appearance with glossy pink lipstick that shimmered on her pout when she smiled.

Do you like wearing lip gloss but find it challenging to maintain over the course of several hours? Daily Glow recommends using a bit of face powder on your finished pout to help the gloss adhere better to your lips for long wear.

Michele and Meester don bright yet subtle eye makeupWhether you slick on a fruit-hued lip gloss or a bold shade of nail polish, infusing your look with a punch of color is always fun. And, it looks like some of Hollywood’s most glamorous starlets are opting to add some pizazz with colorful eye makeup.

However, unlike so many celebrity trends that border on over-the-top, this look is subtle enough for a fun night out, whatever the occasion may be.

At last weekend’s Teen Choice Awards, Glee star Lea Michele dazzled in a sparkling green and nude dress. It was her sultry stare, however, that really wowed the crowd. Michele dusted her lids with a kelly green shadow, and kept the rest of the eye makeup minimal, using little more than a touch of black liner and black mascara.

Leighton Meester embraced this trend at the awards show as well, though she opted for a slightly different application. Instead of adding color with shadow, the Gossip Girl donned a simple streak of blue liquid liner, and paired the colorful swipe with a nude eye shimmer and a bit of liner on her eyes’ inside corners.

To keep this trend from becoming overwhelming, remember to follow Michele and Meester’s leads – keep the color carefully confined to a small section of your lid and accompany it with little more than a coat of mascara.ADNFCR-3538-ID-19925058-ADNFCR
