This weekend in Milan, bold lips got a feminine makeover thanks to makeup artist Peter Philips's saturated rose mouths at Jil Sander. "It's strong, but delicate at the same time," he said of the look backstage. To play up the color's ladylike appeal, Philips used a soft pink lip pencil to create "a classic shape" with the models' mouths. Then, he painted them with a rose-petal pink lipstick using a small fluffy brush. (Try tracing just inside the edge of the lips with Bobbi Brown Lip Liner in Rose before adding Giorgio Armani Rouge d'Armani in 508 on top.)
One more trick to pulling off the look: Keep skin looking matte and even-toned, says Philips, who used Chanel Vitalumière Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Makeup SPF 15 foundation on the skin and skipped blush altogether.
