If you're looking for that extra little touch to take your look from amazing to drop dead gorgeous, a classic red lip, seen here on actress Jessica Lowndes, is the only thing you need. To keep the focus on your beautiful lips, tone down the rest of your makeup.

This reddish pink, seen on Scarlett Johansson, looks great with most skin tones and adds a bit of warmth to your entire look. Like with the classic red, keep the rest of your makeup to a minimum, but don't be afraid to pair it with a nice peach blush.

Oh, My Orange!

Brighten up any look with a touch of orange lip color, as Italian actress Cristiana Capotondi did here. Stick with a matte shade to keep your lips from looking too loud, and go au naturel for the rest of your makeup (or at least make it look that way).

Going Nude

As hot as color is right now, when it comes to a lipstick with major sex appeal, nude is the way to go. Get a natural-looking pout, like model Karolina Kurkova's, to give your face a flawlessly effortless appearance.

Get a sensual and sophisticated look when you're showing off a shade of plum lipstick. This color tends to work best on cooler skin tones, like that of Kate Winslet, but you can experiment with different shades to find the best fit for your lips.

Have fun with your lips when you're sporting a peach lipstick shade! This color looks great on sun-kissed skin, so brush on some bronzer before applying your lipstick. Top it all off with a golden-bronzed eyeshadow and a coat or two of mascara, and you'll be irresistible.

If you have a warmer skin tone, mauve is the perfect lip shade to complement your look. Get a sultry pout by swiping on a bit of this color, and add a touch of lip gloss to make your lips look super shiny, like Marcia Cross'.

No must-have lipstick list is complete without throwing in a shade of perfect pink. Add a little punch to your look with a hot pink lip shade, as seen here on Taylor Swift. To make your lips really stand out, pair them with just a coat of mascara.
