Emma Stone stepped out for Elle’s Women in Hollywood Tribute with a homerun of a look. Her fringe bangs and side layers framed her rosy-colorwashed cheeks perfectly, while her raspberry stained lips coordinated beautifully with her dress. Then there were her dramatic eyes, peeking out under her long bangs they were bright and blue under a thick line of dark eyeliner. Her look was bright and dramatic enough for the flashbulb frenzy that accompanies red carpet events. If you’re looking for something a little less flashy but just as fresh, you’re going to want to focus on your lips and not your eyes.
To achieve stained, yet soft, lip color you’ll want to check out a product like Smashbox’s Limitless Lip Stain and Color Seal Balm in Sangria or Petal. With a feather-resistant stain in marker form on one end, you’ll be able to easily apply the color and watch it sink into lips, creating color depth. Then you can use the lip balm at the other end to add a little moisture and softness back to lips to really set the look.
