If you're looking for a way to jazz up your makeup look this summer, Cyndi Lauper's vivid lipstick puts a magenta spin on a classic bold lip - and it's perfect for any upcoming event...

Bright shades have been at the forefront of lipsticks this season, and Cyndi Lauper just debuted a new standout shade that rivals your go-to best long-lasting lipstick that you pull out for every occasion. Performing on stage for the fourth day of Glastonbury Festival, the singer's choice of lipstick caught our eye, thanks to its unique purple-esque hue and non-budge formula - which also convinced us to take notes of the best lipstick tips to keep it in place all day.

So, if you're on the hunt for bold yet chic lippie that is sure to make an impact for your summer events, or perhaps the '80s pop star's look also grabbed your attention, here's why we're following suit...

Why we're loving Cyndi Lauper's hot pink lipstick

Performing at Glastonbury Festival on Saturday, 29th June, the singer adorned a silver corset and tulle-trimmed blue blazer, whilst her silver locks complemented a neutral makeup look and slight smoky eye. But, it was her hot pink lip that took centre stage.

While the bold lip has been taking red carpets by storm this season, Lauper opted for a cool-toned fuchsia hue instead of a classic Hollywood red - which, combined with her tousled grey tresses was a match made in heaven. Although, it's unclear the exact lippie shade Cyndi Lauper is sporting, we've scouted the market for a few chic options to add to your makeup arsenal...

How to recreate Cyndi Lauper's bold lipstick

Before perfecting your pout, it's important to prep your lips using a lip scrub - like this easy-to-use e.l.f. Lip Exfoliator - to remove any dead skin cells, before moisturising with a hydrating lip balm to help the products glide on easily.

With a bold lip, it's really important to ensure your lip products are kept neatly within the lines, in order to help sculpt and define. For this look, we'd recommend opting for lip liner in a slightly darker pink hue, before using your chosen pink lipstick to fill in the centre of your lips. If you'd like to take your pout to the next level, finish with a subtle rosy-hue gloss in the centre of your lips - like this Maybelline Lifter Gloss Hydrating Lip Gloss.
