Rich, Plummy Lips at Armani Prive

True fact: A deep lip color like this brightens up anyone's skin, whether it's alabaster or super-dark. But its intensity can be a little overpowering. Here, it's so pretty, done with super-clean makeup and a soft neutral eyeshadow (like the fawn-like shade used at Armani Prive's spring couture show, seen here).

For a similar look, try Armani Maestro Mono Eyeshadow in 3 (a pewtered bronze) and Armani Rouge D'Armani Lipstick in 603 (a clear, bright violet). Dab the lipstick on with your fingertip, then top it with a little lip gloss for a sheer, flattering look that's dramatic and a bit regal, too--especially good for evening.
