Go vintage glam. Go retro by applying a bright shade of red on your puckers and match it with soft, rounded brows and voluminous curls, like Taylor Swift. You want your lips to be the star of your look, so keep everything else at a minimum. Pat on shimmery nude shadow onto your lids to brighten up the eyes. Ditch the eyeliner and go for lengthening mascara instead.

Full on diva. While you may not be living the life of Anne Curis—arista hair, contoured cheekbones, mega lashes and all—take a cue from the former Cosmo cover girl and go for a full-on glam look for special occasions. Pair your red lips with a flawless base and don’t forget to warm up your skin tone with some bronzer. Fill in your brows with a pencil one or two shades darker than your hair color and soften your arches by brushing them up. Up your #FOTD by lining your eyes, too. Apply a soft chrome gel liner on your upper lash line and smudge it with a small fluffy shadow brush. Take a black pencil liner and line only a third of your lower lash line to give the illusion of bigger eyes. Grab the same small fluffy shadow brush and smudge the liner to get rid of harsh lines. Put on your favorite pair of falsies, finish with mascara, and you’re good to go!

Soft and feminine. For days when you don’t feel like packing on a ton of product on your face but still want to wear a sexy red lip, go for stains or balms. Erich Gonzales looks like she’s barely wearing any product on her face in this photo, save for a cherry-colored stain on lips, blush to balance out the look, mascara to open up her eyes, and brow powder for her arches.
