The Surprising Lipstick Hue We're Smitten With



We're all about reliving decades gone by — even those years we didn't necessarily experience the first time around. Case in point: the '60s. Ah, to be part of an era where the bouffants were bouncy, lashes were long, and pastel pouts were the norm, not the exception.

But, in an effort to avoid looking like we wandered off the set of Hairspray, we decided to tackle one trend at a time. The light-colored lip in particular seemed right up our beauty alley — something we've seen work well on others, but weren't sure how to translate on ourselves. So, we called in makeup pro James Vincent to set us straight. Will assistant beauty editor Tara emerge with a pastel lip that's mod without being costume-y? See for yourself.
