How to Make a Hot Pink Lip Pop in Your Minimalist Look
On 08/15/23 // Beauty
The minimalist aesthetic is all about the details, even in makeup. It’s an intentional and edited approach to aesthetics, taking out the most unnecessary items and paring down your wardrobe to its most essential components.
A hot pink lipstick is the perfect way to add a little bit of color and personality to your minimal look while still keeping it streamlined.
Let’s explore how you can make a hot pink lip pop in your minimalist look!
Choosing the Right Shade of Pink
The key thing when wearing a hot pink lip with a minimalist look is to choose a shade that works for your skin tone and that compliments your outfit. It’s less about the tone and more about the vibe you are going for, though. It does not really make much sense to say - if you have fair skin, go for something more on the light side like bubblegum or baby pink.
Anyone can wear baby pink as well as salmon or fuchsia, or even something deeper like magenta or raspberry. The only difference is that a berry pink will not make such a contrast on you if you have darker skin. That’s really all there is to it. Low contrast is a look, high contrast is a look - both can look stunning.
Minimalist hot pink lip will always have good skin and neutral eyes to keep the focus on the lips.
But still, now that you’ve chosen your shade of hot pink lipstick, it’s time to think about what colors of clothes will pair best with it in order to complete your minimalistic look.
Depending on the shade of pink you’ve chosen, complementary colors could include black, white, gray, navy blue, beige, taupe, copper or even some shades of green.

Adding Subtle Details
Sometimes adding subtle details is what makes an outfit stand out even more — and this applies to minimalist looks as well! Consider pairing your hot pink lip with other accessories such as jewelry or scarves in neutral colors with just a slight pink hint. That will give an extra pop without taking away from the overall aesthetic.
You can also experiment with different makeup techniques such as adding mascara or eyeliner for an extra touch without overwhelming the look.
