The first step to looking fantastic in a lipstick is finding the perfect shade for your skin tone.
And if you're a morena, makeup artists generally recommend anything neutral.
This color, mauve nude, on Gabbi Garcia is a stunner.
The shade became a runway trend early this year.
It's somewhere between beige and rose, with a modern purple undertone, and it's perfect for your every-day look.
Now if you want something subtle yet different, you will like this shade inspired by the "summer guava," which looked gorgeous on Juliana Gomez.
The color leans towards orange/coral.
Both are part of the 50 shades of lippies launched by NARS Audacious Lipstick, which costs PHP1,700 each.
On Gabbi was the limited-edition shade, Vanessa, and on Juliana was Catherine.
Meanwhile, if you want that perfect pout, the two ladies' makeup artist Jason delos Reyes sent this tip via email.
"In general, if my clients has chapped lips, I usually do lip scrubbing first to remove dry skin on the lips and for smoother application of any type of lipsticks.
He added, "...you can apply your favorite lip balm for added moisture."
