It’s a classic for a reason. Dark, vampy lipstick commands attention like nothing else. For many, though, the idea of wearing something so stand-out can take some time. TZR’s celebrity dark lipstick inspo guide shows there’s no wrong way to wear it — and that there’s a color out there for everyone.

Of course, the queen of all celebrity beauty lines can make a midnight-black matte lip color look as casual as a nude shade. Rihanna’s black lipstick emphasizes her instantly recognizable cupid’s bow and looks especially regal with her crown-like Bantu Knots and otherwise-minimal makeup.Christopher Polk/Getty Images Entertainment/Getty Images
Dramatic makeup looks are something of a rarity for Jennifer Lawrence, which makes it all the more exciting when they do roll around. For a Hunger Games movie premiere, J.Law dressed up her wavy platinum bob with a creamy berry-toned lipstick and matching blush. It’s the ultimate winter makeup.Lars Niki/Corbis Entertainment/Getty Images
Priyanka Chopra is known for her vast lipstick collection, but this shining, purple-toned dark red color is beyond regal. The rich shade makes her brown eyes — and that glittery gold makeup — truly shine, while the lipstick’s satin finish adds a boost of plumping moisture.Taylor Hill/Getty Images Entertainment/Getty Images
When Hailey Bieber traded in her “glazed brownie” lips for a moodier look, the entire internet was rapt. The creamy blend of purple, red, and brown tones in the statement lipstick — supported by glossy black nails, fluffy brows, and some soft brown eyeshadow — are so sophisticated. @haileybieber
Sparkle and shine your way through the holiday parties Lizzo-style by showing up with a glitter-soaked dark lip. Lizzo’s glittery brown lips, made with an easy-to-DIY kit, combines the season’s biggest lip color trend with the equallybuzzy glitter craze to create an unforgettable look.@lizzobeeating
Despite its connotations, dark lipstick doesn’t necessarily have to be a super bold, look-at-me moment. Gemma Chan’s elegant coat of burgundy lipstick (it’s Chanel Rouge Allure in Ultraberry, btw) is surprisingly low-key next to her smoky eyeliner and tousled, side-parted updo.@gemmachan
Throw out the rulebook on winter mattes and embrace a high-shine shade like Yara Shahidi’s dreamy raisin-colored lipstick. The hydrating texture feels comfortable for hours while the glossy finish lights up the face with a from-within glow.John Shearer/Getty Images Entertainment/Getty Images
Those moments when you do reach for a matte lipstick? Instant retro vibes. Lily Collins’ dark red lipstick and its velvety finish is pure Old Hollywood. Even with her modern slicked bun and pared-down eye makeup, the lipstick makes her entire look feel so vintage.Max Mumby/Indigo/Getty Images Entertainment/Getty Images
The ideal blend of red and purple with a touch of brown for warmth, Mindy Kaling’s oxblood lipstick is timeless and a foolproof winter shade. In her preppy-glam ensemble, the lip color adds a daring twist while her warm coral blush livens the whole thing up.@mindykaling
Is any beauty inspo roundup complete without an appearance for Bey? She’s done every eye-catching look at this point, but still finds ways to create new trends. Her rich purple matte lipstick is the chicest addition to her monochrome look — take a page out of her book for your next event.@beyonce
