One of this season's hottest beauty trends, the paintbox lip is the statement-making red carpet look of choice for Rachel McAdams, Jessica Szohr and Gwen Stefani.
Gossip Girl star Jessica Szohr was pout perfect at a film premiere in New York working a neon pink matte lip which, set against the dark liquid liner on her lids, really made the aqua hues of her eyes pop.
Meanwhile at another premiere in New York, Rachel McAdams gave the Marilyn Monroe look a modern edge by opting for a softer shade than full-on pillar box red, working a pretty coral hued lippy with just a hint of gloss to add a luxe finish. We love the gentle, shimmering highlighting around her eyes too.
And over in Cannes, Gwen Stefani went all out glam, moving away from her failsafe red lippy, opting instead for a delicious glossy fluro magenta shade. Balancing out the super smudgy smokiness of her eye, this mega-watt shade complimented the pale platinum shade of Gwen's locks.
