rutina wesley lipsticksWhat a difference a lipstick makes. The right colors can take you from day to night in an instant…just look at True Blood star, Rutina Wesley . The choice to go with a taupey brown lipstick (along with neutral eyes) kept her makeup looking simple yet pulled together – not exactly the right shade for a night time soiree, but pretty just the same. What’s nice about  Bobbi Brown’s Basics Lip Palette ($40, barneys.com) is that it includes two high-shine glosses (Naked & Posey Shimmer) and two lipsticks (Brownie & Rum Raisin) that lets you create a custom color or wear the individual shades as-is and still knock ‘em dead!

Now, what is appropriate for a shindig after sundown is a bright, bold lip color and Rutina looks great wearing this punchy red (appears to be orange-based) shade and Makeup Forever’s Rouge Artist Intense #42, Satin Vermillion Red ($19, sephora.com), a highly-pigmented, long-lasting, rich-colored lipstick can deliver a similar result for you. But if you’re not sure that this lipstick is the perfect red for you, then check out my entry TREND WATCH: Red Lips to help you nail down the proper color.
