How To Make Pink Lips Work On Anyone
As much as we love trying a new hair color, finding flattering lipstick to go with it can be tough. Switching from red hair to blonde? No problem, just do as Emma Stone did and use a really rich pink rose. Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Lovesick ($9, Drugstore.com) has blue undertones, so whether you’re red, blonde, or something in between, it’s going to add a pop of color to your face without washing you out.

Hot pink isn’t for everyone; sometimes you need to take baby steps to build up to your perfect pink. That’s why we loved this Selena Gomez look.

Brunettes, we’ve got fab news for you: pink is your color, so work it! Take Mandy Moore, for example. The singer rocked this hot pink lipstick at an event recently, but truth be told, she could have chosen any shade of pink. Pink is a great contrast to dark colors– dark hair, skin, eye makeup etc.–so if you fall into one of these categories, take advantage of it and let your pink pop! Want to get a color like Mandy’s? Try Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Intense lipstick in Satin Fuchsia ($19, Sephora.com).
