A good lip color can transform a look from simply pretty to jaw droppingly stunning.

Keeping the rest of your makeup minimal curled lashes, maybe some well-blended contouring, and groomed brows makes the drama of lips this dark all the more effective, says Black, who created this look. “The combo of intense dark lips and a fresh nude face is a modern way to keep this deep shade from sliding into goth territory,” she says.


The key to nailing this look is precision: To create crisp, sharp edges, use a lip pencil, then fill in lips with a brush. Liquid formulas can deliver that patent-like shine.


Allover peach—yes, on your eyes, cheeks, and lips—is a pretty way to warm up your complexion without having to cake on the bronzer. “It’s the perfect multiuse color,” says Black, who likes Clé de Peau Beauté Extra Rich lipstick in Cherish.


We’re totally behind the resurgence of the ’90s brown lip, but just in case you’re not, this purply take on the shade is likely a more palatable way to get in on the #TBT-worthy trend.


Purple lips with too much of a blue base can range from goth to hypothermic, but the warm, fuchsia-infused tone here is as fun as it is flattering.


Opaque, juicy tangerine lipstick is the anti-no-makeup-makeup choice.

Metallic lip

This look, the handiwork of makeup artist Robin Black, made us want to immediately run out and buy every matte pink lipstick we could find.


To get long-lasting color with a velvety matte finish, layer a liquid lipstick over a base of lip pencil in the same shade for staying power.


Lupita Nyong’o is the queen of pulling off any makeup color, but this vibrant orchid purple is surprisingly wearable for mere mortals, too.


So-dark-it’s-basically-black lipstick isn’t the easiest look to pull off, so props to Lorde for doing it so well.

A lip color this dark is usually moody and dramatic; but when it’s paired with rosy cheeks and dewy skin, there’s something upbeat and party-ready about it.


One glimpse at this photo and it couldn’t be clearer why Joan Smalls has a beauty contract. The key to nailing superbright matte lipstick—other than painting it on with surgeon-like precision—is to start with lips that are totally flake-free.


Jenna Dewan Tatum’s matte lipstick coordinates perfectly with her dress for a look that’s unapologetically bold.


Here’s proof that the pinkest, Pepto-est lipstick can look badass (when paired with a perfectly mussed topknot and thick black cat eyes, that is).
