AMA 2012 Makeup Trend: Pale-Pink Lips

The music divas and on screen queens walked the red carpet for Sunday’s American Music Awarda, flaunting their flawless makeup, striking shoes, and one-of-a-kind dress. Each stunned in their own styles but the one look that seemed to reappear on the carpet was the sweet and subtle pale-pink lip. From Ginnfer Goodwin’s 60s take to Carly Rae Jepsen’s gold and pink pairing, pale-pink lips undoubtedly stole the show. Take note from the stars and try the subtle hue in inspiring couplings.

 60s Mod

Channeling the 60s trend made popular by beauty icons like Twiggy, Ginnifer Goodwin went for a pale lip and bold lashed out eyes. Apply lashes to both your top and bottom lashes, extending the bottom lashes out (or draw them out with a liquid eyeliner) and apply a pale-pink lipstick. To make eyes appear wider, take white eyeliner and apply to the inner lash waterline.

Purple Haze

Try pairing a pale-pink lip with a colored smoky eye, like Christina Aguilera’s purple smoky. The lips will perfectly complement the heavily done eyes, making for a sensual yet subdued look. Dip in a light silver to the inner tear ducks to brighten up your eyes.

Gilded Glow

Both Carly Rae Jepsen and Heidi Klum opted for gold eye shadow to set off their lips. Gold and pink create a soft glowing look. You can try the gold shadow on the inner lid like Klum or lower lid like Jepsen, or both. Try falsies or mascara and give a matching pink blush a go.
