Your eye col­or is sud­den­ly translu­cent, cheeks are flushed, there is soft rosy halo around your lash line, and your lips…your lips deep­en as blood rush­es through them and cre­ates a beau­ti­ful, trag­ic look. This lip hap­pens to work well for day or evening and does­n’t require you to cry! This method allows you to wear any lip col­or in a very nat­ur­al and believ­able way.

The secret to this look is cre­at­ing a soft halo around your lip line. Start by tak­ing your favorite lip­stick, stain, or chub­by lip pen­cil and sat­u­rat­ing the col­or just on the cen­ter of your lips. Then, take your fin­ger and blend the col­or over your lips as if you are rubbing.

Once the col­or starts dis­solv­ing into your lips, drag your fin­ger right on top of your lip line, bleed­ing the col­or into your lip—especially over your cupid’s bow. It’s like fin­ger paint­ing on a sen­su­al can­vas, lead­ing to the per­fect stain that will last for hours.

This tech­nique will also allow you to use those beau­ti­ful pops of col­or you’re always eye­ing but nev­er dare to buy, since the method will only cap­ture the color’s essence. My favorite three col­ors to use for the trag­ic lip are a coral red, a clas­sic mauve, and a deep wine. The first col­or I used in the pic­tures is YSL’s Rouge Pur Cou­ture Ver­nis À Lèvres Glossy Stain in 8 Orange De Chine (which also made an appear­ance in this week’s lip stain roundup!)—the per­fect orange-coral stain, but you must work quick­ly with blend­ing as it sets quick. The sec­ond look is the rosy-mauve Clé de Peau Beauté Extra Rich Lip­stick in 106. This creamy for­mu­la feels so heav­en­ly on the lips and imparts the per­fect “you-could-nev­er-go-wrong” col­or, giv­ing you a super-nat­ur­al, yet flat­ter­ing look. The third col­or is the Nars Vel­vet Mat­te Lip Pen­cil in Train Bleu. Swipe this vampy col­or dead-cen­ter on lips and give it a good rub down to trans­form your mouth into a dead­ly weapon that kills silently.

Find­ing the per­fect gift for a friend can feel much more com­pli­cat­ed than it should. You already know the per­son well enough to war­rant giv­ing her a present, but you also want what­ev­er you give to reflect how well you know each oth­er. Is it too imper­son­al? Is it fan­cy enough, or are you try­ing too hard? What do you give some­one for a birth­day ver­sus a bridal show­er? We’ve round­ed up the obvi­ous occa­sions for gift­ing: engage­ments, thank-yous, etc., but also con­sid­ered what to give in less tra­di­tion­al sit­u­a­tions — like when you’ve been a crap­py friend and need to grov­el for for­give­ness (answer: weed). Or maybe you have a fren­e­my that requires an extra-spe­cial item, because you obvi­ous­ly have far supe­ri­or taste. Whether you choose a real­ly good bot­tle of bour­bon, a sriracha key­chain, or the per­fect nurs­ing bra, click ahead to be that per­son who always gives the right present to the right person.
