The expression “cool girl factor” is a bit of a cliché, unless you use it to characterize Zoë Kravitz. You would have been hard-pressed to find a makeup look or theme that the star can’t pull out of. And even though she’s not afraid to play and mix it up on the red carpet, there’s been a clear trend, particularly when it comes to her lipstick colors. Yeah, over the years, Kravitz has gravitated markedly towards crimson lip colors, giving viewers a strong lesson on how to rock a red lipstick.
Truly, when it comes to the lipstick, there’s no colour more iconic than red. Although it is said that there is a shade for all, one might go even further and suggest that there are several shades for an individual — Kravitz is a shining example of this. If it’s a classic true crimson, a rich maroon, or even a fun take on the hue of coral or berry, you can count on Kravitz not only to have worn the shade, but to have worn it well.
Below, see the different shades she’s adopted over the years as well as the items that will enable you to imitate the look.
If you’re looking for a hue that’s more strong than a classic ruby, this shade Kravitz wore at the 2018 Vanity Fair Oscar Party is a fitting choice. It celebrates all the better aspects of wearing a red lip, but the undertones of the coral make it feel new and special.
This red lip on Kravitz at the “Rough Night” New York Premiere in 2017 had a berry tinge that brought it from a true red to a slightly pinkish hue. For occasions where red seems too bright, or if you prefer to lean towardspink undertones, look for lipsticks like this that are a little cooler in color.
You can’t even understand the full range of red lipsticks without the dark hue being checked. The saturated berry tone that the singer and actor wore at The Meadows Music & Arts Festival in October 2016 is a classic example of how even the darkest tones should look calm and uplifted, without overwhelming the rest of your look.
