Like braided hairstyles, vibrant pink lipstick has become a hot red carpet beauty look, with several trendy celebs wearing the daring shade to premieres and parties.
On Tuesday Amber Heard, 25, attended The Rum Diary premiere in New York City in a black long-sleeved Jean Paul Gaultier dress, but her makeup was anything but somber.
"I chose a bright pop of color (on the lips because of what Amber was wearing," mark celebrity makeup artist Mai Quynh tells Us Weekly. "Her dress was black and covered a lot of her skin, so I wanted to make sure she looked chic and polished. Plus, Amber loves wearing red lips, so I thought it would be fun to do a bold lip but in a different color family."
A night earlier Camilla Belle stunned in a skin-tight black gown by Ralph Lauren at an event honoring the designer in the Big Apple. The actress, 25, worked slicked-back hair and a similarly standout lipstick.
"We decided that the focus was all about her face, so she kept the hair simple," the star's makeup pro Hung Vanngo tells Us. "Red lips or dark smoky eyes are usually the obvious choice to go with the dress like that. But Camilla is always open to play with makeup, so I suggested we go with a bright pink lip instead." Vanngo used Tom Ford Lip Color in Violet Fatale.
