Another reason Lupita Nyong'O continues to be our style muse: She's not afraid to break out an ultra-bright lipstick regardless of the season. The neon pink shade she wore to a GQ party in Los Angeles is officially the high-octane alternative to the classic red lip. Rather than picking up a solid, opaque hue, her makeup artist Nick Barose chose Giorgio Armani's Lip Maestro in No. 504 ($32 at giorgioarmanibeauty-usa.com), a lipstick-lacquer hybrid with buildable coverage. "A bold lip color like hot fuchsia pink is more wearable when you opt for a texture that isn't too glossy or matte," he told InStyle.com. "Try something more sheer, like a stain or lip lacquer." Armani's innovative formula dries to a slightly matte, velvety finish, and stays in place once applied so you won't have to fuss over finding a matching lip liner -- just be sure to clean up around the edges with concealer, or a pointed Q-Tip to cover any unexpected smudges.MORE:• Shop Lupita's Silver Eye Shadow• Lupita’s Smoky Violet Shadow and Orchid Lipstick• See Lupita’s Best Red Carpet Looks
