Celeb Trend: Bright Lips

Between the Cannes Film Festival and the Billboard Awards, there’s been no shortage of red carpets lately. Celebs need to be at their best and brightest to steal the spotlight at star-studded events like these, and the easiest way? A look-at-me bold lip.

Get the Look: Rachel McAdams’ Orange Lipstick

According to Pantone orange was the color of the year last year, but since you can’t exactly go out any regular old day in green lipstick (the color of the year this year), I’m all for the orange lips we’ve been seeing on the red carpet. Plus, orange is one of those colors that will […]

Get the Look: Elle Macpherson’s Nude Lip

Nothing goes better with a bold smoky eye than a nude lip, but what people tend to forget is that it’s a versatile look that would work just as well with a more neutral eye, as Elle Macpherson demonstrates in the image above. The key is to make sure your lips don’t disappear. For that […]
