Exacting a night-out smoky eye is work (i.e., you spend 20 minutes in eye-shadow blending alone). Are you really going to ruin that with a distracting pink lipstick?
You need a clean, nude hue that keeps all the attention up top. Here's how to do it--no expensive lipstick required.
Step 1: Take your concealer (yes, the one you just covered a zit with) and swipe it across your pout. Use your finger to rub it in circles all over. You want to take out the natural pigment of your lips and create a blank slate.
Step 2: Apply foundation and set with powder, just as you would on the rest of your face. Be sure the overall look is even and blended.
