As a general rule, runway makeup trends aren’t for the faint of heart (especially those inspired by the 1980s ) but every once and a while something so wildly quirky begs you to give it a go—even if it’s only in the privacy of your own bathroom. Turn the pavement into a veritable catwalk in statement-making lipstick , the brighter the better. Hot pink has long been the uniform of the rebel and the rock star , but the bravest makeup look of all is two toned lips: one distinct neon color on the top lip and another on the bottom. This super trendy makeup look is best worn with barely there eye makeup and cheek color. See for yourself by trying on two toned lips and real-life makeup in our virtual makeup studio.
Is this brave runway makeup trend wearable in real-life? Maybe not at the office, but you can get a toned down two-toned lipstick look by rocking one bright shade on both lips and applying a shimmery gold eye or silver shadow to the center of the top and bottom lips for a glossy effect (without the gloss). This trick echoes the two-toned trend without overpowering your face and appears to plump your lips . --Stephanie Simons
