Jessica AlbaThis cranberry lip color will look divine at a family dinner:
Step 1: Apply a sheer foundation or tinted moisturizer (try Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer, $42) to even your skin tone.
Step 2: Apply white eyeliner to your lower inner rims, and use a frosty white eyeshadow (try Bobbi Brown Shimmer Wash Eye Shadow in Bone, $20) on your lids and inner corners of your eyes. Apply false lashes or simply apply multiple coats of thickening mascara (like CoverGirl LashBlast Volume Blasting Mascara, $7.99) to finish the eyes.
Step 3: Use a cranberry-colored lip liner to line your lips (try Clinique Quickliner for Lips in Rich Red, $14) and fill them in for staying power. Then, apply a long-lasting (hey, you'll want to make it through dinner, right?) cranberry-colored lipstick (like Clinique Long Last Soft Shine Lipstick in Merlot, $14) with a lip brush for precision. Follow up with clear gloss, and put an extra dot of gloss in the center of your lips to make them appear fuller.
