This bold and diverse collection of portraits and still lifes makes us all want to put on some lipstick.

How many social media holidays does it take to fit in a makeup bag? Who knows if that even makes sense, but we're here for it - Happy National Lipstick Day!
From Jami Clayman's Gucci lipstick snack to Sophia Emmerich's gender-non-conforming portraits, these images push and celebrate the possibilities of what beauty photography can be.
It's all work photo editors and creative directors should know and consider - be sure to check out the link below each image and reach out if you'd like to collaborate.
Happy, Happy!

▲ "With prop stylist Kimberly Swedelius, we went for a looser, natural, laissez-faire feel, with drips and imperfections left on the foraged fruits, and typically-invisible T-pins and floral frog structures showing through in the still lifes. And I opted for a gentler light than is common in a lot of product photography these days to really emphasize the soft beauty of the cosmetics." - Stephanie Shih
