Love It or Leave It opinions aside, you definitely have to confidence to wear this eye-popping shade! Blue lipstick may be out there compare to other lip colors, but this cooler than cool makeup swatch is gaining a serious fan base.

In honor of the Fourth of July, we thought we'd offer up a few tips to keep in mind when thinking about going blue. Click through the slideshow above to see a few celebs who have sported this blue hue for some shady inspiration

Tip 1 - Let lips make the statement.  If you decide your look is going to feature blue lips, tone all other aspects of your makeup down. Minimal makeup is key to making blue lipstick look too cool for school, versus way too much. Less is more with this daring shade. With a color already pushing the limits of conventional, you don't want the rest of your look to send you over the edge.

Tip 2 - Choose your shade wisely.  Like any other type of lip product, blue lipsticks come in a wide variety of colors and finishes.  Try several shades before choosing one that looks great on you. The key here is experimentation.  Blue lipstick in the tube does not always translate on. Go for a shade that has high pigment to avoid lips looking chalky or washed out. Whether an icy blue or deep midnight hue, go for the one that's right for you. Matte finishes are in for lipsticks in general, but a shiny finish works great for a fun night out.

Tip 3- For the truest color, be sure to apply your blue lipstick on clean bare lips. If going for a matte finish, be sure to moisturize lips before application with a lip balm to prevent chapping. Opt for a lip liner to help define lips and create a sharp, professional finish.
