Her smile can light up an entire room and she naturally flushed pahadi skin can make anyone go green with envy. Can you guess who we’re talking about? Yes, it’s none other than the gorgeous Yami Gautam. The pretty actress has been serving us major skin and makeup goals since she first made her debut opposite Ayushmann Khurrana in Vicky Donor.

Even though Yami usually prefers the no-makeup makeup look (with skin that gorgeous, we don’t really blame her), she is often seen experimenting with some bold lip colours. So, on the occasion of her 32nd birthday today, we have rounded up five Yami-approved bold lipstick shades that every girl needs in her kitty this party season…


1. Bold Brick

Bold Brick

For girls who want to wear a statement pout, but don’t want to anything too bright, a brick hued lipstick is the way to go. A cross between red and orange with brown undertones, this lipstick brightens up your face and gives you a statement-worthy pout.

Whimsical Wine

Absolutely perfect for the party season, a bold wine lipstick is a winter staple, and Yami knows that. Pair this statement lip colour with a blingy dress for a date night or the NYE party, and you are bound to receive a ton of compliments.

If you decide to wear this lipstick, remember to keep the rest of your makeup minimal to balance things out.
