Quick... What color comes to mind when you think about bubble gum, cotton candy and watermelon margaritas? Five, four, three, two, one--pink!
Beautynistas predict that eye-popping, pretty-in-pink colors will be this summer's hottest trend. In fact, when celebs wanna turn heads on the red carpet, they think pink. Everyone from Gywneth Paltrow to Nicki Minaj to Lea Michele has made style statements with this sassy shade to create show-stopping hair, gowns, nails and makeup.
Anne Hathaway kick-started a couture craze when she floated down the aisle in a pink-dipped tulle Valentino gown on her wedding day last September. Jessica Biel then took the trend to the next level when she tied the knot with Justin Timberlake in a whimsical petal pink princess gown last October.
The color now dominates cosmetics counters, so it's an ideal opportunity to add a pop of pink to your summer look. Check out the latest luscious blushes, eyeshadows, glosses and lipsticks. You'll be tickled pink with the results.
