The Bold and The Beautiful
The Orange-Red Lip
Make a statement with matte-orange-red lips. The velvety finish feels modern, says Katie Jane Hughes. Global Colour Ambassador for Butter London.
How-to: Swipe a lip brush across the edge of a long-wearing lipstick and carefully outline lips. Apply lipstick, starting at center. Remove smudges with a cotton swab.

The Chrome Color-Block Nail
Nail your summer mani with a chrome color-block design. A soft pastel mixed with a complementary metallic shade is sophisticated yet simple, says Elle, celebrity manicurist and Dermelect Color Curator.
How-to: Start with two coats of buttery-yellow polish. Using a tiny, precise striper brush, draw a diagonal line across nail with gold enamel. Fill in the section with gold, and repeat for each nail. Seal with topcoat.

The Smoky Green Eye
Shimmery green shadow makes eyes mesmerizing with a molten metal look, says celebrity makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury.
How-to: Prep lids with an eye primer. Press powder shadow from the lash line to the crease, using a firm, flat brush. Diffuse shadow in a circular motion with a blending brush. Dab a pearlescent highlighter in the inner corners and swipe on two coats of mascara.

The Coral Cheek
Peachy-pink blush creates a fresh, youthful glow, says Tilbury.
How-to: Use a cream formula—it blends seamlessly— and dab onto apple of the cheeks with your finger, moving upward toward temples. For extra oomph, brush on a translucent powder, followed by powder blush in a peachy shade.
