5 celebrity-approved bright lipstick shades that will make you ditch nudes

Agreed: nude lipsticks are a makeup staple and no matter what your mood or outfit, it goes with pretty much everything. It's easy to rely on for every occasion, but TBH you want to be spotted in the same lipstick shade season after season. Bright and bold lipstick shades are a timeless makeup essential and our favourite celebrities have proved it time and again.

In 2021, bold lipsticks are making a comeback, and now is the perfect time to invest in some gorgeous bright lipstick shades. To get you started, here are five celebrity-approved bright lipstick shades that will make you ditch the nude.


01. Classic red lips

Red lipstick never goes out of style; it is a must-have for every woman. We love how Aditi’s bright red lipstick flatters her skin tone. Whether you like blood red, cherry red or a subtle version of it, find your perfect red lipstick and use it to transform your look every once in a while.

BB picks: Lakme 9 To 5 Primer + Matte Lipstick - MR1 Red Letter


02. Deep brown

One lipstick shade that has made a major comeback from the 90s is brown. No, we are not talking about those shiny brown glossy lips. Instead, opt for a rich coffee or dark brown shade. Take cues from Hina Khan who is sporting a gorgeous deep brown matte lipstick shade in this picture.

BB picks: Lakme Absolute Matte Revolution Lip Color - 303 Wild Brown


03. Berry lips

Sometimes a berry lipstick is all you need to look dressed up and ready to go. We love how Deepika Padukone has kept it simple and sophisticated by toning down the makeup and only wearing a berry lipstick shade with her casual outfit.

BB picks: Lakme Absolute 3D Lipstick - Explosive Purple


04. Maroon lips

We don’t see a lot of maroon lips anymore, but here’s Aishwarya Rai Bachchan sporting a stunning maroon lipstick looking like the gorgeous diva that she is. If you want to go bold and beautiful this year, look no further than a maroon lipstick.

BB picks: Lakme Cushion Matte Lipstick - Burgundy Bloom


05. Pink gloss

If you think pink is a summer lipstick shade, think again. We love how effortlessly gorgeous Priyanka Chopra Jonas looks in this pink glossy lipstick. If you wish to rock this shade in winter, take cues from the diva and swipe on some shimmery pink colour on your lips.

BB picks: Lakme Absolute Plump And Shine Lip Gloss - Pink Shine
