Lip LaquerCinco de Mayo – the day the Mexican army defeated the French in Puebla in 1862 – is the perfect day to show support for your Latino compadres, party in the middle of the week, and give the latest new lip colors a try. Mexican fiestas by nature are bright and bold, so there’s no better time than now to give the daring colors of Kevyn Aucoin and Paul & Joe makeup a whirl.

Go Bold

Bright red isn’t the only way to go when dressing up your lips for a fiesta. Go bold, saucy and smoldering with Paul & Joe lip gloss. First, line your lips with the darker color of a Paul & Joe Lip Pencil Duo in Dual Melon or Dual Scarlet. Then fill in your lips with the lighter color that comes with the lip pencil. Give your pout some oomph by pairing its color with one of Paul & Joe’s Lip Lacquer. Pair the Dual Melon lip pencil with the Lip Lacquer in Serenade, or the Dual Scarlet pencil with Tenderness.

Go Bright

Kevyn Aucoin makeup is the go-to source for bright lip colors. The Elegant Lip Gloss collection includes this season’s hottest lip shades: Vizcaya (coral), Valentina (bright fuchsia), Molasses (terra cotta) and Elizabeta (pink). To match the Mexican flag, go with Anastasia, a brick-red lip color. If you can’t make up your mind between all of Kevyn Aucoin’s fabulous, fashion-forward lip colors, go with the Lip Palette, which comes in five popular shades of red and pink.

As you show off your bright pout, remember to keep your eye makeup simple. Skip the smoky-eye look and opt for muted eye shadows and a coat of mascara.
