Eyes may be the windows to the soul, but your lips are just as important. Celebrities such as Dita Von Teese, known for her vintage-inspired red lipstick, step up their makeup game by wearing the boldest of hues on their lips. One tip: "If you wear a bold lip color, make sure to wear a good two coats of mascara to balance out your entire face," notes makeup educator Marlena Stell of the popular YouTube MakeupGeekTV channel.

Model Coco Rocha sports a medium pink lipstick at the Secrets of Start-Up Queens panel hosted by Glamour magazine in New York. "Pinks are always a safe bet for lipsticks as they look great on everyone and come off a bit more natural," Stell says. "Pair it with a soft gold eye shadow to keep it fresh and light."

"Only the brave can pull off a lipstick this dark, but it works for actress Rooney Mara as her overall style here is very clean," Stell says. She explains Mara's fair skin and minimal makeup allow her lipstick to do all the talking at the 2013 Costume Institute Gala.

With her fair skin, glossy hair and cool red lipstick, model Bianca Balti looks picture-perfect at the "Venus in Fur" premiere during the 66th Annual Cannes Film Festival. "If you're new to wearing red lip color, go for a matte finish lipstick or stain as it's more understated than wearing red lip gloss," Stell advises.

"Orange lipsticks aren't just for the circus anymore," Stell notes. Just look at how gorgeous actress Fan Bingbing is at the "Jeune & Jolie" premiere during the 66th Annual Cannes Film Festival. "Orange-hued lips are a fun and creative way to add a pop of color to your lips this summer." To avoid clashing colors, Stell recommends pairing this tricky lip color with soft peach blush.

"Peach is an amazing color for the lips as it pairs well with a smoky eye or on its own for a daytime look," Stell says. "Actress Selena Gomez is the picture of eternal youth with this gorgeous lip color and soft peach blush." To recreate Gomez's dewy complexion and keep this look fresh and current, Stell suggests using a highlighter.
