Bright red lips aren't for everyone, which is why we're crushing on Olivia Wilde's toned-down take on a crimson pout--the sheer pinky-red hue is much easier to wear and flattering to all skin tones.
Just because summer is over doesn't mean you have to put away those super-bright lip hues. Neon colors look gorgeous and dramatic against pale winter skin. Opt for a hot pink lippie like Jayma Mays to bring out skin's natural rosiness.
A creamy nude lip like Lea Michele's can be just as dramatic as a bold lip. The monochromatic look subtly draws attention to your lips without looking garish. The trick to making nude work is to go glossy with the finish--matte nudes can make lips look dried-out and sickly.
Kirsten Dunst's stained pout reminds us a bit of the tint your lips take on after drinking a few glasses of red wine. The velvety finish and deep hue are sophisticated and chic, but in an understated way.
To soften up a dramatic smoky eye, you need to keep your lips looking demure. Ciara's soft pink lipstick is girly, sweet and the perfect counterpoint to her sultry eye makeup.
For flat-out appearance and look-at-me you just can't beat a classic red lip. satiny red lipstick has blue undertones, which flatter her pale skin. Those with warmer undertones should opt for an orange-red shade.
Think pink can only look soft and sweet? thinks otherwise: Her metallic rose pout is feminine and edgy. To create this effect, take your lipstick and create a thick, chunky line along the inside rim of your lips, leaving the very center of your pout bare.
Coral lipsticks aren't usually a popular hue in the fall, but they're actually a great option for the colder months: The warm undertones in peachy shades help brighten up washed-out, sallow skin. Take a cue from Anna Faris and choose a coral that has more neutral undertones--too much orange can look clownish when isn't sporting a sunkissed summer tan.
Zoe Saldana's glossy, berry lips are a great, low-maintenance way to rock a bold lip color--the sheer texture means minimal smearing and the glossy finish guarantees less touch-ups.
