Trends may come and trends may go but classics last forever. Like a little black dress or tailored trousers, red lipstick too is a classic that never falls from grace. It's a colour that suits absolutely everybody (even if they don't know it) and is highly preferred by celebrity folk too. Whether it's for awards night or a weekend bash, the stars of Hollywood and Bollywood never shy away from a rouge pout so here are 10 of them who wore the red lip to perfection.
1. Alia Bhatt
How incredible does Alia look when she puckers up in rouge? The Bollywood sweetheart pairs a red floral number with slicked back hair, brown eye makeup and for the finishing touch, a crimson coat on the lips.
2. Kangana Ranaut
For a look that screams retro chic, Kangana paired a pin-striped plunging-necked suit with a blonde faux bob, winged eyes and a rosy red lip to finish it off.
3. Jenna Dewan Tatum
Well, look who we have here. It's the lovely Jenna Dewan Tatum wearing the red lipstick we've been dreaming about all our lives. The punchy pop of colour on her lips takes all the focus of her look, so she's paired it with a side-parted wavy bob and heavily blushed cheeks.
4. Katrina Kaif
While Katrina usually favours a nude glossy lip, once in a while she makes an exception for red and rightly so. Along with a red suit and flowing tresses, Katrina wears a muted red lipstick that's ideal for days when you don't want your red lipstick to go overboard.
5. Julianne Moore
One thing's for certain - age has nothing to do with what shade you wear on your lips, as proven by Julianne Moore. The Hollywood talent sports a piping hot red lip with strobed skin against gentle waves in her brown hair.
6. Sonam Kapoor
Of course Sonam Kapoor features in this list, what did you expect from an actress whose style is always on point? At the airport, Sonam pairs an off-duty jacket and maxi with loose hair, large sunglasses and a rich red pout, showing us just how to wear red lipstick on our off days.
7. Olivia Munn
It's easy to get speechless when you spot Olivia in this look because it's possibly the closet we can get to makeup perfection. The actress wears a deep red lipstick with a pulled back hair, pink cheeks and light eye makeup, keeping it as classy as they come.
8. Kate Bosworth
The magic of red lipstick is that it doesn't only need to be bright and attention-grabbing. Like Kate Bosworth's look, it is possible for it to be muted yet defining. For a red carpet appearance, Kate wears her hair in a tight bun with bronze eye makeup, rosy cheeks and brick red lips.
9. Saiyami Kher
Worried if red lips will go with a traditional look? Saiyami Kher has got you covered. In a resplendent Indian wear with chunky gold jewellery, Saiyami pairs her sideswept curls and bronze eye makeup with creamy red lips.
10. Shay Mitchell
Can it get any hotter when Shay is slaying it in a red lip? We think not. The actress wears a bold rouge pout with pulled back wet hair, sculpted skin and thick brows to turn up the sexy quotient by a few notches.
