Bright neon lipsticks, like the hot pink seen on Coco Rocha
, are having a moment this summer. And what’s not to love? They’re an easy way to create a dressed-up look with minimal effort, and they allow you to take it easy on the eye makeup. Vivid hues like Rocha’s tend to bring out more flaws if your lips are chapped, so take extra time to prep your pucker before swiping on the vivid hue. Slough away dry skin by exfoliating with a lip sugar scrub, or use a warm, wet washcloth. Then, use a touch of hydrating balm before layering on the lipstick. This ensures a smooth color that won’t flake off. If the shade starts to fade or feel dry, wipe off your lipstick and start from scratch to avoid a caked-on appearance.
