As celebrities walked the red carpet during Sunday’s MTV Movie Awards, certain beauty trends stood out, mainly in the form of neutral makeup, and white eye shadows and liners paired with pale pink lips.
Take Zendaya, for example. The 17-year-old singer/actress kept things decidedly simple, opting for a low-maintenance blowout and minimal, neutral-looking makeup.
Zendaya’s “Shake It Up” co-star, Bella Thorne, choose a similar look. She sported wavy tresses and makeup that accentuated her pale skin, including white eye shadow and light pink lipstick.
Also among the fair-lipped celebrities was Iggy, who like Thorne, favored white eye makeup and a pale, pink lip. She also rocked a super-full, crimped ponytail. Victoria Justice also wore pink lipstick, although hers was a bit brighter.
Stars such as Nicki Minaj and Rihanna puckered up with neutral makeup, but accentuated their eyes with dark, cat-eye inspired eyeliner.
You might be wondering how the average, everyday person can get away with some of these looks. After all, we don't have professional stylists at our beck and call.
In terms of light pink lipstick, be sure your lips are moisturized. As lipstick dries out, it can look flakey, especially in lighter colors. Hydrated looks just look better, period. Also, don't use any type of dark lip liner. In fact, it's probably safe to skip lip liner all together. Finally, pink lips need neutral eyes. Avoid bright blues, greens, purples and other crazy colors that will make you look like a clown.
