#1 - Go Matte
Trade in your sheer tinted foundation for a more matte foundation that keeps your complexion even and your face free of shine all season long. Like Jessica Alba, we love Revlon's Custom Creations Foundation ($14, drugstore.com), which you can adjust to match your own skin tone. Another cool option? Foundation that does double duty either as anti-aging or acne clearing, like Neutrogena's Skin Clearing Oil Free Makeup ($8.29 on sale, Ulta.com).
#2 - Retire Your Lipgloss
That's right, chicas--it's time to stash away those shiny tubes and switch up your usual lipgloss for lipstick. The right one will give your pout a creamy, silky smooth finish, and a bold shot of color (like Alexis Bledel's vibrant pink lip) will keep the look fresh. Shu Uemura makes a high quality lipstick in really cool pink shades. Try pairing Pink Bloom in their Rouge Unlimited Series ($23, shu-uemurausa.com) with your little black dress and get ready for a night on the town.
#3 - Be a Queen
While black and brown are tried and true, variety is the spice of life--especially when it comes to enhancing your peepers in a regal, sexy shade of plum. Zoe Saldana has mastered this concept, and so can you. Just pair Givenchy's Captiv'Eyes Mascara in purple black with a matching eyeliner in purple red, like Givenchy's Magic Kohl eyeliner pencil ($25 and $21.50, sephora.com).
