I Love Lips — My Top 5 Celebrity List



I love looking at lips.  Maybe it’s the makeup artist in me.  Or maybe I just have a thing for lips, I don’t know.  You know those silly little quizzes that pop up on various internet sites — “Guess the celebrity lips/smile”?  Well, I ace those every time.  So don’t screw with me, I can pick you out in a line-up by looking at your lips.

Anyway, before I start rambling, I was checking out some photos the other day, and realized that I have some definite likes and dislikes when it comes to lips.  Some women look great in lipstick, for others are best in gloss.  It’s also a travesty all the women who look freaky deaky because they have had botch jobs on their lips.  Just love your lips and enhance them temporarily I say.  Maybe if I had two slits for lips, I would be all over the collagen and hyalauronic acid fillers myself.

At any rate, these are the  top 5 celebrity lips on my list  and some tips on how you can get the look.

1.  Kerry Washington

aka K-Wash

I love Kerry’s perfectly pursed lips.  They are adorable.  At first I thought she did that little pursing action deliberately for the camera, but then I noticed a pattern — that’s just her trademark lip look.  And notice how her lips are fuller in the center and perfectly full on both top and bottom.  Love it!

 Kerry also looks best in nude or pale glosses — part of her signature lip look.

 One instance Kerry’s makeup artist did her wrong — the red lips.  They just didn’t work.  The lipstick aged her and she looks quite matronly.  I’m thinking a sheer red lipstick or gloss may have made the cut.

 Get Kerry’s look — try a pale lipgloss like Fresh Sugar lipgloss in Sugar Baby, a shimmering nude peach.

2.  Jennifer Hudson

aka J-Hud

Not much to say here.  Jennifer Hudson has simply the fullest, sexiest, fullest, most voluptuous lips (au natural).

Glossed up or down with neutral lipsticks or lipgloss, Jennifer has the lock on luscious lips.

Don’t have the natural curves of J-Hud?  There are a plethora of plumping products that give temporary fullness to the lips.  Check out the 3 step program from Fusion Beauty

  STEP 1: Plump
LipFusion Lip Plump, $36
Apply the original, best-selling, pout-plumping gloss to clean lips. Like a bicycle pump for your pout, this cutting-edge treatment, that’s earned the coveted Good Housekeeping Seal, starts working the second you swipe it on for lips that look fuller, smoother, and flat-out sexier than ever before. Results last up to 48 hours.
  STEP 2: Define
LipFusion Lip Plumping Pencil, $28
Trace the outline of your lips and let round two of the plump-a-thon begin. The first of its kind, this innovative pout-enhancing pencil smoothes and improves the contour of your lips for up to six hours, helping to minimize fine lines and wrinkles around your mouth. It’s available in four universally flattering shades, making it easy to find one that complements your natural lip tone.
  STEP 3: Shine
LipFusion Color Shine, $36-$38
The final step to achieving the perfect pout: Top lips with this high-shine gloss that uses the same pout-enhancing formula as the original, only colored and spiked with micro-mica for mirror-like shine.
 
3.  Victoria Beckham
aka Posh Spice
 I’m sure this may come as a surprise, but I really like Victoria’s little lips.  They remind me of baby lips — she has the perfect little cupid’s bow and I think that she does deliberately purse them when posturing for the paparazzi.  But that’s okay — as long as she doesn’t get some crazy surgery on her lips like she did on those half-grapefruit looking boobs…

4.  Angelina Jolie
aka Angie J
I have to give it to her, she has the best lips on a white chick.  Only they look kind of dry to me.  Maybe she Angie needs a little exfoliation.

5.  LL Cool J
aka James Todd Smith
I don’t know if LL has the best lips on a man in Hollywood or not, but he certainly brings plenty of attention them with all that licking. Jeez.

    Nice post!! I love my lips. You know, Chapstick never did it for me. It made my lips dry. Give me some old-school Vaseline and I’m cool.

    • makeupchica

      no, actually chapstick causes chapstick addiction. keeps your lips wanting more. they have some new formulas that have better ingredients that are not so drying. you are right on hit about the original though!

  • Nice post. I love your selections form 1-4… but I’m not quite comfortable with my “kindled” side to like #5… but this is a really good article. I really enjoyed.

    Did does raise a personal question – what kind of chapstick works best for guys?

    • makeupchica

      Hey Ron– thanks for reading. I actually prefer a more natural product for lip balm or “chapstick”. I recently checked out Serena’s mission skincare lip balm and like it. It’s at cvs. I also like Burts Bees. In drugstores too. Keep ’em smooth!

  • Woman, you are one HOT writer!!! I love your posts! Keep it going girl!
