Deep, vampy berry lip colors are a perennial favorite for fall and winter, but this time around, things are getting shaken up just a little bit. A tiny change can make a huge statement, and right now, it’s that lip gloss is phasing out lipstick as the current product of choice. Take a deep breath—and come to terms with it, because it’s happening.
We spotted more than a few celebrities sporting the shiny look on the red carpet this week, with everyone from Alessandra Ambrosio to Emilia Clarke getting in on the formerly-reserved-for-teenagers fun. So what we’re really trying to say here is that we should all be giving the trend a try right now.
Could we be seeing the return of glittery lip gloss, too? We’d generally give that a resounding “no,” but paired with dewy skin and shiny, simple hair, Emilia Clarke‘s shimmery brick red lip color is surprisingly fresh and modern.
Low-key, yes, but Naomie Harris‘s red carpet look was absolutely radiant. We can’t pinpoint what makes it so great—the sultry black liner? The perfect Hollywood hair? The warm flush that perfectly complements her complexion? But we also can’t find a single flaw.
We unabashedly covet artist and “Girls” star Jemima Kirke‘s style and beauty sensibilities. Case in point: With this bold, bright lip, tossed-up hair, and perfectly groomed brows, it’s like she just rolled out of bed looking gorgeous.
It doesn’t take much for Lindsay Ellingson to look stunning—she was a Victoria’s Secret Angel, after all—but she looks especially lovely with glowing, freshly-scrubbed skin and a pretty raspberry lip color that we’re willing to bet came courtesy of her very own Wander Beauty Love Lock Hydrating Lip Gel ($24).
Whenever we need inspiration for how to wear both dark eyeshadow and bold lip color without looking totally insane, we look to Diane Kruger. With a wash of neutral gray shadow and the perfect berry lip stain, she’s got finding the right balance down to a science.
If anybody knows sex appeal, it’s Alessandra Ambrosio, and this expertly executed look doesn’t spare any drama, either. That smudgy brown smokey eye is total perfection, and her tousled side ponytail is everything we’ve ever wanted out of our own attempts.
