“I save the lips for last since lip products usually come off first,” Kashuk says. “To extend the wear of the lip shade, begin by lining the lips with a soft nude shade, such as my Lip Definer in Bare or Dusty Rose, and then fill in the whole lip. Be sure to go back and soften the edges to eliminate any strong, defined shape – nothing dates a makeup look more than drawn-on lips.”

Add a light layer of gloss that matches your lip color.

Next, use a coordinating shade of lipstick or gloss to cover the lips. “A few beautiful neutral shades that I recommend are my Luxury Lip Color in Truffle, Soft Pink and Mauvey, and my Ultra Shine Sheer Lip Gloss in Whisper and Luscious,” advises Kashuk. “My Lip Gloss Quad in Natural Nudes is also great. A strong red lip can also be beautiful because it is a very classic makeup statement, but again, soften the edges to avoid overly defined lips.”
