It's April Fool's Day! Let the celebration of shenanigans begin.
The art of the practical joke, or pranking, has become big business in Hollywood. Remember the "Worst Twerk Fail Ever: Girl Catches On Fire!" video hoax that went viral? It received more than 9 million views before TV talk show host Jimmy Kimmel finally confessed to staging the prank.
Before YouTube came on the scene, Ashton Kutcher created and hosted MTV's popular "Punk'd" in 2003. The hidden camera prank show played laugh-out-loud practical jokes on unsuspecting celebrities such as Halle Berry and Kanye West. Justin Timberlake almost broke down in tears after being convinced that the IRS was getting ready to repossess his home.
To pull off a successful prank of your own, let Hollywood's most seductive celebrity pouts serve as your inspiration. These mischievous and mesmerizing looks from A-listers such as Kerry Washington, Angelina Jolie, Scarlett Johansson and Rihanna possess the power to get away with just about anything, especially on April Fool's Day.
We've also assembled several luscious lipsticks to create a similar allure. They come in playful prankster colors such coral, wine, pink, red and nude. No one will suspect a thing--good luck!
