We adore Carey Mulligan in almost everything she does. The indie darling stole the show in last summer’s spring blockbuster The Great Gatsby (Which we’re still talking about around the office!) and is always impeccably dressed and beautifully put-together! We’re huge fans of this neutral-yet-bright look she wore to a recent film premiere. Who would have thought that a fun, bright, hot-pink lip could turn a whole look from pretty to PERFECT?

To get this look for yourself, just keep everything neutral with soft, everyday makeup: Your basic day eyeshadow and mascara, black eyeliner, and just the subtlest kiss of pink-peach blush! Then line your lips for a sharp look, and apply a bright, matte pink lipstick! Glamorous, bold, and (most-importantly!) easy to do!

What bold makeup to you like to use to liven up a basic look?
