For a look that's all about the lips, start with fresh, moisturized
skin. Origins GinZing Energy-boosting moisturizer is great for
normal skin and Arcona Magic Dry Ice hydrates and nourishes
dry, parched skin. To combat cold-weather complexion
concerns, add a face oil to your winter skin care arsenal. Origins

Warm up your complexion with a touch of a BB or CC cream in a shade darker than your natural skin color like the Origins Smarty Plants CC SPF 20 Skin complexion corrector in Medium-Deep or the BB Blur SPF 30 Beauty Balm in Medium to Tan by Peter Thomas Roth on your cheeks and T zone to create a wintry sun-kissed look in lieu of traditional bronzer.
Our Beauty Director-at-Large Romy Soleimani began by brushing the

upper and lower lashes.

pencil like the Tarte Skinny Smoldereyes Amazonian Clay Waterproof Liner in Onyx to
line your lips and layer the dark eggplant shade from It Cosmetics Naturally Pretty
Eyeshadow Trio in Pretty in Plum on top of the red wine color for added depth and texture.

Counter the bold lip with a soft, understated hairstyle. Editorial and celebrity hairstylist Esther Langham parted the hair just off center and tied it into a loose, low ponytail before applying PHYTO Professional Workable Holding Spray for natural long-lasting style. A black cherry or deep black nail complements a bold lip and bare complexion. Try a true black like Deborah Lippmann Nail Color in Fade to Black or a black polish with a hint of red like Crabtree & Evelyn Nail Lacquer in Black Cherry.
