At the latest awards function in Bollywood, a reigning trend that took over the red carpet was rouge. The fiery shade found favour with the likes of Deepika Padukone and Janhvi Kapoor who chose variations of the crimson gown. And their makeup didn't miss a beat either. An appropriate pairing was striking red lipstick, which complemented their chic outfits to perfection. Every beauty addict worth their salt needs at least one (or seven?) red lipsticks for every occasion and season.
