The hottest red lips in Tinseltown

Thursday, 15 August 2013

The red lip never goes out of fashion, and just about every celeb has graced the red carpet with a fiery red pout. Here, our selection of the top red lips in Hollywood.

Celeb red lips
Pursuit of Happiness star, Thandie Newton, pulls off the red lip effortlessly thanks to her gorgeous skin tone. With a complexion like hers, pretty much any red shade will do.

Lets jump to the other end of the colour spectrum with Emma Watson and her Snow White complexion. She’s wearing a beautiful red lip with a slight blue undertone that complements her skin tone. Pair that with flushed cheeks and a subtle smokey eye, and you’ve got a pretty, feminine look.

We love how L.A.M.B creator Gwen Stefani pulls off a crimson red lip with glowing skin and peroxided hair.

If there’s ever a star that resembles a porcelain doll, it’s got to be Dita von Teese. With impeccably kept dark brows and the perfectly positioned beauty spot, the burlesque dancer adds a classic red lip and is ready to turn heads.

Who said that red heads can’t wear red lips? We’re crushing on the magnificent Jessica Chastain. Her hair, eyes and red lips are enough to make any girl jealous and any man swoon.

Who do you think wears the red lip best?

    These ladies are all beautiful but Gwen Stefani’s makeup is too pale for me to carry off the colour. Such a classic and stong colour. Dita is gorgeous

    I am obsessed with the red lip trend at the moment! By using a lip liner in the same shade, colour in the entire lip for an all day red lip.

    Dita is the reason why I adore a beautiful rich red lippie. Such a classic look and she carries it off so elegantly.

    I’d say Gwen, she’s been rocking the red for years and it has just kind of become part of her image. She’s amazing!

    Looks best on dark haired beauties with fair skin like Dita von Teese. Like Snow White.
