Makeup look: Bold lipsWearing a bold-berry lip color, like the one seen here on new mom Bethenny Frankel, can instantly make you look polished, says Chang-Babaian. Colors rich in pigment will also last longer, so you'll spend less time re-applying.
Here's how to get a drab-to-fab bold lipstick makeup look:
Step 1: Apply a tinted moisturizer with SPF for light coverage and protection. Try Elizabeth Arden Sheer Lights Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15, $18.
Step 2: Use a liquid concealer to cover any dark circles or hyperpigmentation -- a liquid product will keep your skin more moisturized and less cakey when you're experiencing post-baby dry skin blues. Try Smashbox High Definition Liquid Concealer, $18.
Step 3: Line your lips and fill them in with a lip liner that matches the lipstick you plan to wear then apply lipstick (try Avon My Lip Miracle Lipcolor in Berry Delight, $8). Blot and dust lips lightly with powder for extra-staying power, then apply a second coat of lipstick.
Step 4: Apply a couple of coats of black mascara.
