This summer, take a cue from starlets such as Leighton Meester, Amanda Seyfried, and Emma Stone and try the monochromatic trend by colour-coordinating your lipstick with your outfit.
Spotted: Leighton Meester wearing a vampy, crimson lip at the Ferragamo show on June 12. By keeping her lips and dress the same tone—a deep mulberry—the Gossip Girl star looked sultry and put-together.
LIP TIP: Prep your lips beforehand to get a perfect base. Start by exfoliating with a scrub, then moisturize with lip balm before applying colour.

Amanda Seyfried proved that accessories make an outfit when she arrived at the Tony Awards on June 10. We love how the actor matched her lips to her bright orange belt and handbag, contrasting her purple embellished dress.
LIP TIP: If colour-coordinating your lips to your accessories feels like too much, try matching your lips to your tips for a more subtle approach. Find a nail polish the same colour as your lipstick to tie your look together.

Although Emma Stone is no longer a redhead, she clearly hasn’t ruled out fiery hues from her makeup and wardrobe. At The Tonight Show on June 5, the Spiderman star’s orange-coral lipstick matched her tailored dress and sandals to a tee—showing off how stylish a monochromatic look can be.
LIP TIP: When wearing bright shades, don’t go overboard. Make your lip colour pop by leaving the rest of your makeup minimal.
