There is no denying Lupita Nyong’o‘s beauty and for the 2015 SAG Awards the actress gave us 40’s glam with her tight braided bun and her smoothed out makeup. For today’s edition of VavaBeauty we took notice of how Nyong’o flawlessly rocked a bright pout (see Lupita Nyong’o’s beauty secrets here). Bold lips are not as tricky as they seem, make sure when applying color to lips use a lip brush to ease your color on rather than going full force. This technique allows your color to appear more natural and effortless. Embrace your fearless side and take notes from MAC Cosmetics makeup artist Fatima Thomas as she proves dark-skin ladies can pull off a bright pop of color on their pout… Enjoy!

Do you dare to wear a bright lip?
