Olive skinned girls have no problem pulling off the hot pink lip look as long as the pinks are warm-toned. This is important because warm tones will work with the olive skin color. A good way to check to see that you are purchasing a good pink is to swatch it on your arm. A good pink will compliment the tones of your skin, rather than clash against them.
In case you are unsure how to judge what clashes and what compliments, I swatched four hot pink colors that will work for any olive skinned girl. The hot pink lip is the perfect option when you are on-the-go during the summer. It works in the same way that a red lip does in the winter months – a sophisticated look that works best with simple makeup, since the lips are such a powerful element to the look.
Therefore, in the summer, to look somewhat put together in minimal time, I sweep on some bronzer, apply some mascara, and slap on a pink lip. In this look, I am using Jane Cosmetic’s lipstick in Glam – a vibrant, electric pink color. It works beautifully with minimal makeup because the lips are such a strong focus to the look. Be sure not to pair too many other colors or elements to your makeup to ensure the lip isn’t too overwhelming.
