When it comes to makeup, we tend to wear colors that parallel the vibe of a particular season. Colder months usually evoke darker shades on the spectrum of blues, purples and browns, while the warmer seasons are all about bright hues that scream vacation and piña coladas (ugh, is it summer yet?). Even though it’s fun to wear makeup that jibes with the season, we’re switching up our lipstick game with an unexpected shade that’s everywhere on Instagram. Pink lipstick, whether it’s matte, glossy or a little bit of both, will add a fun feel to any outfit — including that dressy winter coat. So leave the dark shades at the door and welcome a bright, sweet hue just like these Instababes that will remind you of bubblegum, Barbies and basking in the sun.


1. Statement Lips: Grasie lets her lip color really pop by leaving the rest of her makeup minimal and fresh — just a dusting of light pink across her lids and a matte finish to her cheeks. We really love how the striking lip hue makes her highlights pop. (via @grasiemercedes)

2. Sultry Cat Eye: Pair your pink lips with a smokey cat eye for an ultra dramatic look. Add a bit of shine by highlighting your cheeks and the bridge of your nose for an extra glowy finish. (via @naptural85)

7. Rosy Finish: Rosalina is not afraid to make a statement. But while her hair and eyebrows have a mind of their own, her mauve-colored lipstick helps tone down the look with a matte finish and subtle pencil outline. (via @ahitsrosa)
