Bold lipstick is definitely having a moment, but punchy hues aren’t restricted just to the younger crowd. Julianne Moore recently wore a bright pink lip, and we loved how the 51-year-old actress made the high-octane shade more age-appropriate by pairing it with a neutral eye. The secret to this look, according to the star's makeup artist Pati Dubroff, is lining lips with a cool rose shade—not a matching bright pencil—before applying lipstick. “A cool pink would be best, as it blends with the lip color, but can be used with other shades as well,” Dubroff told InStyle.com.
