Stone totally works the bright pink lip look by keeping the rest of her makeup
neutral and toned down. Use a lil’ blush

been workin’ ruby lips! The secret to red lips is to keep everything else
simple, making your lips the focus of your makeup. Add some blush/bronzer to keep your natural
flush. Taylor added heavy lashes and
liner for big drama, but you can tone it down with just liner on your upper
lash line and a swipe of mascara.
