I recently did a blog post and a youtube video on different eyeliner styles sported by four female celebrities. Ever since I did that, I wanted do something similar for lipsticks. I found it a bit more difficult trying to find celebrities who stood out for the way they did their lips. But eventually, I did find four stars who fit the bill perfectly. Allow me to introduce to you Marilyn Monroe, Kylie Jenner, Ke$ha and Jessie J (as if you didn't know them already ;p).
Marilyn Monroe was known for being a sexy blond bombshell. Her style was very unique at the time. Her influence in fashion can still be seen today most notably amongst the young models of the Playboy Mansion. Marilyn, amongst other things, was known for her bleached blond hair, hourglass silhouette and for her make up.
Marilyn Monroe had a unique way of doing her eyes and lips. She (or her make up artist) wanted big eyes and big lips. And that became part of her signature look. Marilyn wore red lips and would often go outside her natural lip line to make them look bigger. This added to her sexual appeal. Her style influence can be seen on stars such as Pamela Anderson, Scarlett Johannson and Megan Fox.
Kylie Jenner is the youngest in the Kardashian-Jenner household. While at first she remained rather unnoticed and somewhat in the shadows of her elder sisters she has recently become quite the fashionista.
Instead of going for a soft girly look, Kylie has opted for a style that makes her stand out from the rest of her family. Her style has very edgy with her blue hair, sunglasses and incredibly full lips. There has been a lot of speculation as to whether or not she has had work done to them. I personally think she's not done anything other than know a few nifty lipstick and lipliner tricks to give them such a full look.
Ke$ha is without a doubt one of the tallest female singers out there (she's about 6'1"), but that's not the only thing that sets her apart from her other female starlets.
Ke$ha's style is certainly different and she is not afraid to make a style statement. She is somewhat grunge and somewhat punk and a little bit messy. When I think of Ke$ha I think of Tik Tok, the principal in Glee calling her 'Key-Dollar sign-Ha' and blue lips. As mentioned already, Ke$ha does have a stand out style and I love that she sometimes does rock the blue lips as it totally reflects the grunge in her.
Of all the starlets that I have mentioned, Jessie J is probably the one least likely to come into people's minds when they think of a female star who has a stand out lip looks. Jessie J likes to alternate between a casual look and being edgy.
The lipstick looks of Jessie J's that really stands out for me is the ones she wore the music video for Do it Like a Dude. Her lips are studded and there are a few different colours going on. Whenever I think of black lipstick, I am reminded of Jessie J.
