    Leather and Lace

    Create a less formal (more fun!) take on a dressier style, left, with neon-pink shoes and belt. Or try an unexpected combo, right, like a sporty moto jacket over a tiered tank dress.

    Positively Pink

    This spring, a rosy outlook is a must. Define lips with a nude liner, then swipe on a creamy matte lipstick—we love Chanel's Rouge Allure Velvet—for a smooth finish. Make pout appear fuller with an extra dab or two on the center of the lower lip.

    Top, H&M,, $25.

    Pretty Women

    Partner a peplum top, left, in saffron (the color of the moment) with faux-leather leggings and the style is so right now. A demure chemise, right, gets a shot of adrenaline when wildly floral tights and strappy stilettos are in the mix.

    Bright Eyed

    Go bold on the upper lid with one of the season's hottest hues. Here, the sea-green shadow really pops when combined with white liner along the lower lash line. Finish with several coats of black mascara.

    Top, Hanky Panky,, $43.

    Royal Flush

    Create a pretty glow with powder blush that mixes peach and pink tones. Keep it soft and feminine with mauve lips and a little metallic highlighter on inner corners of eyes.

    Dress, Simply Vera Vera Wang,, $58.
