Copy fall's chic trends in less time than it takes your coffee to brew by following these expert celebrity hairstyle and makeup tricks
The look: Red lips"Thanks to the return of Hollywood glamour on the runways, television and red carpet, red lips are ultra hot right now. Whether you wear a true, fire engine red [as seen here on Rose Byrne] or a more subtle, berry variation, the key to wearing a red lip is being confident," says Devitt. The bonus: red lips are a no-fail staple for fall that can quickly polish off any look.
Application tips: To achieve sexy, full lips, Devitt suggests her quick buffing technique. Grab a red lip pencil (try MAC Lip Pencil in Cherry or Redd, $13) and use "light feathering strokes around the lip line, blending inwards towards the center. Then apply a matte or sheer [red] lipstick evenly all over lips with a lip brush. This delivers maximum pigment and long-lasting color," advises Devitt.
