So-easy summer lip trends snagged from the red carpet

We’re snagging perfect pout ideas from our fave red-carpet rockstars, Emma, Taylor and Selena. Summer’s all about easy beauty and perfect pairings. So whether you wanna go nude, hot pink or vibrant red, we’ve got your instant style guide. Read on!
First, some tips on how to prep your pout and apply your lip color!
Tip 1: Use a lip scrub or a mixture of sugar and olive oil to get rid of any flaky pieces on your pucker.
Tip 2: Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize!  Use a lip balm to make sure your lips don’t dry out.
Tip 3: When applying your lip color, use a lip brush to make sure you don’t end up with bright pink on your teeth and face!


Punchy pink

Emma Stone totally works the bright pink lip look by keeping the rest of her makeup neutral and toned down.  Use a lil’ blush to brighten up your cheeks so that your lip color doesn’t drain your complexion.  Next, sweep liquid liner on your upper lids to define your eyes.  You can even try adding wings to your outer corners for a cool, Hollywood look.  Emma perfectly balances out her bright lips with a fresh face and poppin’ eyes!

Natural beauty


Selena’s got the natural look down, but adds some pop with colorful eyeliner.  Apply a nude lipstick and bronzer to get a glowy look.  Then, line your eyes with dark blue eyeliner to make your peepers pop!  Smudge it up a little bit, add some mascara and you’ll look glam and natural all at the same time.

Radiant in red

Taylor Swift always knows how to get the perfect red-carpet look, and recently she’s been workin’ ruby lips! The secret to red lips is to keep everything else simple, making your lips the focus of your makeup.  Add some blush/bronzer to keep your natural flush.  Taylor added heavy lashes and liner for big drama, but you can tone it down with just liner on your upper lash line and a swipe of mascara.  Taylor’s secret for sparkling eyes?  Shimmery white liner in her inner corners.  Try a soft pencil and lightly smudge to get glowy!
