Idea No. 3: A berry lip stain like Laura Brent

The big trend in makeup right now is a statement lip and a berry stain is an easy way to get started. Plus it adds some sophistication to even a casual look. Here’s what to do to get Laura Brent’s lip:

1. Apply your usual foundation and put a slight hint of pink blush on your cheeks.

2. Line your eyes with brown or black liner to define them and do a coat or two of mascara.

3. For your lips, you can use an actual stain, like Urban Decay Lip Envy in Greedy, $17, or just take a berry-colored lipstick and dab it on with your fingers for a stained look (of course, this won’t last as long, but it’s a good way to try it out).
