Pink Lipstick

At InStyle‚Äôs Golden Globes event, Nina Dobrev's makeup artist Ricky Wilson was inspired by her feminine floral dress. "It's all about dewy skin, flushed cheeks and a splash of pink on the lips," said Wilson, who used Dior products to create the look. We loved the way the rosy pout stood out—some pink lipstick is either too bright or too neutral. "I started by applying a balm to make sure the lips were moist. Lipstick tends to cake if the lips are dry," he explains. Next he created a stain-effect by applying the lipstick with his ring finger instead of directly from the tube, concentrating color in the center of the mouth and working outwards to the corners. Wilson finished off with a smoothing lip polish to create "a lip that compliments the total look and makes a statement." Mission accomplished!
