The bright lip color Olivia Munn wore to the premiere of Ride Along 2 is giving us life on this winter day. And we know the name of it. Read on.


Makeup artist Patrick Ta, a man known for his playful use of color, chose Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in Electric Coral. The thing about coral is that it’s almost red, but with enough orange in it to make it a bit more interesting for winter. It’s best for warm skin tones, women with confidence, and days when you need a little mood lift, as it’s physically impossible to feel down when wearing this sunny shade. OK, science hasn’t proven that yet, but it’s our theory anyway.

The only thing to keep in mind when choosing a coral lip, though, is your blush color. Try not to pick a shade too pink—cool, bubblegum tones just don’t match up here. Instead, reach for something warm, like a peach or bronze, for a more modern look (the one Ta used is from Tarte—we believe it’s the Airblush Maracuja Blush in Shimmering Peach), and you’ll be good to go.
