Dramatic Lipstick Colors Are The Big Trend On This Week's Best Beauty List

And we're not talking the same old red lip.

The major makeup lesson we learned from the stars on this week's best beauty list is that the right lipstick color can really make an outfit. 

Adele looked amazing at the 2016 Brit Awards with a brick red lip that matched her plunging neckline dress to a tee. Kerry Washington was at the American Black Film Festival Awards rocking deep plum lipstick that accentuated a pillowy pout and cobalt blue gown. And Krysten Ritter turned heads on the 18th Costume Designers Guild Awards red carpet with her wine-stained lips and heavily embellished dress.
