Beauty

Bright and bold

Published

In this week's Stylist we celebrated the return of bold lips. Looking for some red carpet inspiration to help you achieve the look? Have a look at our A-list gallery below.

  • LADY GAGA

    With makeup so bold that MAC even named two lipsticks after her, the queen of all things bizarre is never afraid to sport a loud mouth.

  • RIHANNA

    Could the world be any more in love with Rihanna and her quirky, unique approach to beauty styling? Probably not. And rightly so, the singer defiantly uses colour to her own advantage – and we’re taking notes.

  • KATY PERRY

    Her love for colour doesn’t stop with the infamous blue wig; Mrs Brand has a penchant for bold lip colours in a smattering of fuscia shades which work to posit her azure blue eyes to centre stage.

  • GWEN STEFANI

    Her signature might be the classic combination of white-blonde hair and a slick of red lipstick, but the mother of two recently admitted she likes to shift between two colours. “I change colours, I was wearing pink lipstick the last day but I wear red for my husband because he likes the red.”

  • KATE BOSWORTH

    The California girl often experiments with her look, but it was after she emulated the Jil Sander Summer 2011 makeup that she became our beauty crush overnight. This is the lip we covet this season.

  • DITA VON TEESE

    A true burlesque beauty connoisseur, with not a hair out of place, nobody rocks a bright scarlet lip quite like our red-carpet favourite, Dita.

  • MARILYN MONROE

    Marilyn Monroe trail blazed the bright lips trend as immortalised in the eponymous Andy Warhol pop-art depiction and still, half a century later, she remains a constant source of beauty colour optimism.

  • NICKI MINAJ

    She’s new on the music scene, but we instantly noticed her bright lip habit. As did MAC, who released its sell-out limited edition lipstick, Pink Friday, named after Nikki’s debut album.

  • FLORENCE WELCH

    The avant garde songstress wears technicolour lipsticks with minimal, neutral makeup to perfectly complement her porcelain skin and flaming red hair.

  • CYNDI LAUPER

    She’s been sporting bright lips since the eighties and her love for bold makeup has never faltered through the decades. But we’re just amazed we managed to refrain from a ‘Girls Just Wanna Have Fun’ pun.
