Now Trending: The Statement Lip

Gwenyth Paltrow said it best: “Beauty, to me, is about being comfortable in your own skin… That, or a kick-ass red lipstick.”  And I couldn’t agree more!

There is truly no better way to stand out and make a statement than with a really good lipstick, and now is the perfect time to be daring and try a few new hues.

We’ve seen all of our favorite Hollywood A-listers–from Zoe Saldana to Emma Stone to Rihanna–rocking the statement lip in all different colors, really proving the incredibly chic touch it can add to any look.

For example, if you don’t feel like wearing a whole lot of makeup to work or school one day, throw on a bright lip with a little mascara and voilà! You’re looking fab and ready to take on the day.

I also typically choose to rock a statement lip when I’m wearing all black.  It adds a cool pop of color to the style without being overbearing.

The awesome thing about trying different lipsticks this summer is that any shade is on-trend.  Even though you wouldn’t think a dark lip could work for these warmer days, Kim Kardashian proved to us it can totally work while she rocked it last week at Paris Fashion Week.
