Whether you prefer your lipcolor bold (think a swipe of scarlet!) or subtle (a nude hue anyone?), today’s the day to celebrate the one makeup item women turn to whenever we need to face the world with confidence. So, in honor of “National Lipstick Day 2015” we asked some of our favorite celebrity makeup pros to share their must-have, go-to, don’t-fail-me-now lipcolor faves:
Saisha Beecham: “Burt’s Bees Lip Crayons—the pigment is so rich and it goes on semi-matte, but your lips never feel dry.”
DeeDee Kelly: “Ruby Woo Retro Matte MAC Lipstick can turn your day look straight into a night look.”
Denise Tunnell: “Blue Rose by Illusions Cosmetics—it’s that perfect pink/fuchsia color that everybody can wear!”
Porsche Cooper: “I love glamour and Guerlain Rouge G de Guerlain Jewel Lipstick Compact is high-glamour lipstick! It’s full coverage, creamy, luxurious and looks unlike almost any other lipstick when it’s on your lips.”
