Red alert! At last night’s 2nd Annual Mary J. Blige FFAWN Concert, Jill Scott dazzled in the most fabulously retro shade of scarlet lipstick this side of Dorothy Dandridge. Not only does the shade flawlessly flatter her skintone, it also manages to perfectly match her dress without being too matchy-matchy.
To rock this look at home, try Nars Pure Matte Lipstick in Vesuvio ($25, sephora.com) for a bold shock of stay-on-all-day crimson, or Black Opal True Tone Vitamin-Rich Lipstick in Rich Red ($7.25, blackopalbeauty.com) for a creamier, slightly sheer scarlet.
