Stay on trend this spring and summer with makeup in vibrant shades! With names like "Just Bitten Berries" and "Sorbet"'ll look like a technicolored dream in sherbert colored pigment. Joy Bryant, featured in this month's Essence Magazine, shows us why these bold and audacious colors work on lips...Rihanna is a source of constant inspiration with neon nail varnish.
