To achieve a poised glow, pair bold tones like Viva Magenta with muted tones such as soft pinks, so if you’re planning on using a bright pink-hued blush or bronzer, you’ll have something more delicate to match it with. A flush of pink can really liven up any look and give colour to your complexion. Barbie-fied makeup is perfect on every special occasion and looks romantic for weddings.

For a striking look, rely on a sensational eye to do the trick. Pick a palette with a long-lasting blend, that you can rely on to brighten up your look. If traditional is not for you, using a vibrant hue could be the way to stand out such as a bright or neon pink. Using this type of shade on your wedding day will give you an ethereal feel if paired with subtle tones, or if married with glitter or bold products, it can give you a super modern appearance.
Your lipstick or gloss serves as a finishing touch to your beauty look. As a very versatile colour, a Viva Magenta shade of lips caters beautifully to everyone who wants to add a touch of glamour to their on-the-day look. You can tone it down when it comes to your eye makeup and leave your lips to do the talking. On the other hand, if you’d like something a bit more subtle, you can delve into pastel and softer pinks to enhance your bridal glow. The W7 Fashion Lipsticks offer a range of satin lipsticks, with everything from a deep 'Raspberry Ripple' to a shimmering 'Lollipop' shade! The options are endless when it comes to curating a Barbiecore lip. From matte to glossy lips, base your decision on the style of wedding, you can always add an extra pop of colour as you transform your look from day to night with a hot pink.
