At the London premier of Star Wars: The force Awakens, lupita paired an edgy bouffant with a subtle smokey eye and a cobalt blue lip and rosy cheeks. For her lip, makeup artist Nick Barose combined Lancôme Drama Liqui-Pencil in Minuit and Lancôme Color Design Eyeshadow in Sapphire Lace.

An intense violet lipstick is great for a jaw-dropping splash of boldness. We like Maybelline New York Color Sensational The Elixir ($8.99) in Violet.

Nia Long's dark red lips are vampy chic. Try a deep red to amp up your holiday cheer.

Kerry Washington looked romantic yet sexy in a cinnamon lip at this year's Oscars. Use this deep shade to vamp up a night-on-the-town look. Try L'oreal Colour Riche Lipcolour in cinnamon toast.

Tracee Ellis Ross always looks gorgeous yet natural, even while rocking a statement, bold lip. We love Julep Plush Pout Lip Crayon in Magenta Plum Creme ($19).

A deep, wine-stained pout is the ultimate in confident sexiness. Try: Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Black Cherry ($8).

Violet lips stand out in a crowd (and look great on most skin tones). Tone done down the rest of your makeup to accomodate the violet's wow factor—perfected skin, lush lashes and tight-lined eyes will do. Try: Black Up 2-in-1 Lip Pencil in No 9 ($19). For more shine try Black Up Lip Lacquer in No 6 ($22).

Jada Pinkett-Smith's feathery lashes and creamy red lips are the perfect old Hollywood and holiday pair.
