From candy apple to cranberry to carmine, we've seen just about every shade of red become a lipstick trend. Wondering which crimson hue has got next? Surprisingly, it's neon.

Take a good look at it on former Pussycat Doll Ashley Roberts; at first glance it looks like a true red, but when you look closer, you'll see the color has been kicked up a notch or two. (Quick cosmetic chemistry lesson: Regular red becomes a bright neon when it's mixed with a touch of white pigment.)

To pull this trendy lip color off, follow Ashley's cue by wearing it matte, and making it the focal point of your look by paring down everything else, i.e. the rest of your makeup, your hairstyle, and even your outfit.
