n easy-to-wear, dusty pink like NARS ‘The Multiple’ Stick in G Spot ($39) works for the office and play. The neutral hue can be worn on the daily and works for almost every skin type (plus, options like M.A.C ‘Mineralize’ Skinfinish in Cheeky Bronze, $33, add a bit of shine). For the best application, smile when sweeping a large, round brush across the apples of your cheeks.

Go green. Try a shimmering, dark green shade like M.A.C Eyeshadow in New Crop ($16) across your lids. Emerald makes a dynamic impact, especially worn in lieu of statement jewelry for a night out.
Toga shirt, $380, nordstrom.com; Jules Smith choker, $125, nordstrom.comThere were almost 50 shades of blue on the runway this season, but light sky and dark riverside shades really stood out. To try, opt for a liner on top or bottom lashes (such as M.A.C Technakohl Liner in Skyscape, $17) and shadow in a darker hue (we like Clinique ‘Lid Pop’ Eyeshadow in Surf Pop, $17).
Proenza Schouler dress, $2,825, Browns.com; Cristabelle earrings, $48, nordstrom.comMustard yellow makes for a bold color statement, but the shade makes a surprisingly chic eyeshadow. If that look is a bit too much, try it on your nails (opt for Julep Beauty Creme Nail Color in Catrina, $14) or ease in slowly with a slick of eyeliner. If you’re going for shadow, it’s all about layering: Start with a light wash, then build up color as you feel more comfortable.

Makeup by Fumi Nakagawa, Hair by Clay Nielsen, Manicure by Holly Falcone.With the ability to flatter pretty much anyone, a bright, statement lip ought to be considered the LBD of beauty. For the ultimate one-two punch, match your nails to your lip color. It’s best to opt for a complete color match—we like Yves Saint Laurent ‘Rouge Pur Couture’ in Rhythm Red ($37) and Essie ‘Gel Couture’ Nail Polish in Flashed ($12)—since two different shades can look a little off.
