I have no idea what this recent fascination with neon pink lips and ridiculous eyelashes is about.  It's like the 60s impregnated the 70s and gave birth to the ugliest makeup trend ever!!  I mean, these girls are walking around looking like Snuffleupagus.

As a makeup artist I see nothing wrong with pink lips and long lashes, but there are so many shades,lengths, and styles to choose from.  Unless you are in an editorial photo shoot or fashion show, there is no excuse for wearing "day glo" lips everyday.  I do agree that pink lips are very pretty but please choose a complexion complimentary shade.  And if the shade is indeed 10 shades lighter than your complexion (sigh), please line and blend with a comparable lip liner a few shades darker.

Ok, let's talk about lashes, Snuffy!!  Please, please, please choose a natural pair of lashes to wear everyday.  Again, save the dramatics for special events, photo shoots, and fashion shows.  Also, it is pointless to wear thick ridiculous lashes and no other makeup.  It just draws all the attention to your eyes, Snuffy, duh!   If you don't know what you are doing and have the time/money to get them professionally done, please do so!  Individual lashes can have a more natural look, but be careful as they can pull natural lashes.  

So, with that said, let's have a moment of silence for all the Snuffy's and Janice's at work, on the block, at church, in the mall, and at the drive thru. May their bad decisions rest in peace!
