The bold pink lip is one of the season's freshest statements, eliminating the need for much else on your face. But if you're not comfortable with, say, magenta, sub in any pink -- from rosé to raspberry -- and you'll still look scrumptious.
Prep: 5 to 7 minutes
1 pink lipstick, gloss or stain
Cream blush to taste
Half-serving of black mascara (this is a top-lash only look)
1 pale eye shimmer
1. If you're using a gloss, simply swipe it on. If you're using a lipstick, tap a finger around the outside of your mouth to soften the edges after you apply. (A severe line will look dated.)
2. Smile and dab a hint of a rosy cream blush to the apple of each cheek, then blend outward.
3. Apply mascara only to your top lashes to make eyes appear wider but not too done.
4. To bring the look from day to evening, sweep on any pale, shimmery eye shadow.
