National Lipstick Day: Perk Up Your Pout with Hollywood's Hottest Shades & Looks

Time to out your pout. National Lipstick Day has arrived!

Back in the day, we're talkin' more than 4,000 years ago, women ground precious gems into fine dust to decorate their lips. Fast forward to 1923, the first swivel up lipstick tube appeared on the market. Today, ingredients such as fruit extracts, vitamin E, mica, and jojoba, castor and safflower oils produce luxurious matte and glossy varieties. 


To pick out the perfect shade, consider your skin tone. For the most part, light pink and peach palettes suit pale complexions, and orange and coral colors complement fair skin with warm undertones. Red and orange tones tend to work well with olive complexions, while the sky's the limit for medium- and dark-skinned women. 

If you're looking for the latest pout-popping looks, see which shades Demi Lovato, Lea Michele, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, Zoe Saldana and Nina Dobrev rock on the red carpet. Plus, check out our luscious lipstick picks that no makeup bag should be without.

Enjoy our tribute to the tube!
