Sunday night’s SAG Awards were all about bold lips (and ponytails, but that’s a story for another time). Paired with an otherwise fresh face or soft smoldering eye, these stunning lipstick shades are a surefire way to turn heads. Try one. I promise you’ll agree. Here are my five favorite bold lips of the night with scoop from these starlets’ makeup artists on the exact lip products used to create them.
Reese Witherspoon: Lips by makeup artist Molly R. Stern
Stern used Laura Mercier Crème Smooth Lip Colour in Cocoa as a base and brightened it up by applying Laura Mercier Paint Wash Liquid Lip Colour in Orchid Pink (launches March 2015) over top. For an “added punch,” she applied another hue: Laura Mercier Paint Wash Liquid Lip Colour in Vermillion Red (also out in March) to the center of her lips. She finished the look with Laura Mercier Lip Glacé in Black Cherry to give Witherspoon’s lips “depth and sheen.”
Lupita Nyong’o: Lips by makeup artist Nick Barose
Laura Carmichael: Lips by makeup artist Lauren Andersen
Andersen applied Avon Ultra Color Lipstick in Poppy Love to create Carmichael’s classic red pout.
Rosamund Pike: Lips by makeup artist Melanie Inglessis
Inglessis created Pike’s matte red lip with longevity in mind. “I used Make Up For Ever Aqua Lip Waterproof Lip Liner Pencil #25C Orange Red to line the lips and filled in with CHANEL Rouge Allure Velvet Luminous Matte Lip Colour in La Pétillante.”
Emma Stone: Lips by makeup artist Rachel Goodwin
