Whether you're an experimental makeup guru or a creature of habit, TODAY Style Editor and Bobbie.com's Bobbie Thomas shares tips to amp up your lips.

Tangerine
Fashion designer du jour Jason Wu made a statement on recent runways, topping off his ladylike designs with neon orange lips. Diane Kendal and her MAC Cosmetics team created the electric pout by adding a layer of Neo Orange loose powder on top of a scarlet lipstick ($14.50-$20, maccosmetics.com). Tom Ford’s Wild Ginger and True Coral are rich splurge-worthy ready-to-wear shades ($48, neimanmarcus.com), while Bobbi Brown’s new Neons and Nudes collection includes an Atomic Orange lipstick, a juicy gloss called Citrus 2, and a pretty palette of subtle eye shadows perfect to pair with a shocking lip ($23, bobbibrown.com). Pump up the color on your pout, but keep everything else simple for a fresh modern contrast.

The best red lip makeup for your skin tone

Fuchsia
Purple reigned on other spring 2012 runways, like Prabal Gurung’s show which accented models’ lips with an ombre effect. If you're a fan of plum or brown-based lipsticks, it'll be easy to make the jump to a vibrant berry hue. L'Oreal's Colour Riche in 'Sea Fleur' and Maybelline's Super Stay Gloss Stain in 'Fresh Fuchsia' are two favorite finds from the drugstore (L'Oreal Colour Riche $8.95, lorealparisusa.com; Maybelline Super Stay Gloss $9.99, target.com) while more daring divas can venture deep into purple territory with Illamasqua's Resist and Atomic, or Lime Crime's Centrifuchsia (Illamasqua Lipstick $22, sephora.com; Lime Crime Lipstick $15.99, limecrimemakeup.com).

8 ways to look fabulous in a hurry

Powder pink
Bubblegum pink may sound like a hue that's fit only for tweens or trendsetters, but contemporary designer Michelle Smith proved pink could look polished at this season’s Milly show. The shade can be surprisingly soft on a wide variety of skintones, from the fairest of ivories to deep mocha. If you’re not convinced consider working your way up the pink chain with a tinted gloss, such as Tokidoki’s Arlecchino’s Prisma Gloss. Next you could tackle a cream lip stain, like Sephora Collection’s Cute Pink or Tarina Taratino’s Nouveau (all $12-22, Sephora.com). But if you’re ready for the full power of an opaque pink, you’ll love CoverGirl’s LipPerfection shade Enchantress. A fun affordable way to wear a warmer weather trend now!

Photos: One makeup artist’s daily makeover project

  1. The Daily Face

    By Rina Raphael

    Putting on one’s daily makeup is hard enough. Now imagine coming up with a new look every day.

    But that’s just what Annamarie Tendler, 26, did on her popular blog. The creative makeup artist, who noticed a lack of simple and approachable beauty blogs, challenged herself to post a few new makeup tutorials a week in March 2011."

    “I wanted to make something that didn't inundate the viewer with information, but rather offered up a simple concept in a simple way,” Tendler told TODAY.com. “As in, here is a look, this is how you do it, this is what you use.”

    The tutorials range from practical (“how to curl your eyelashes) to wild (a Lichtenstein-inspired look for Halloween), and the work can often be exhausting. “I need to be generating so much material and I'm only one person, who also works on other shoots and projects,” said Tendler. “I find that every couple of months I need to take a two week break."

    Surprisingly, Tendler isn’t even a makeup junkie. Her personal regimen is “extremely simple,” consisting of not much more than Josie Maran Argan Oil moisturizer. But after posting dozens of makeup applications, she does have one beauty she recommends to all women: “Wear mascara.”

    "I was inspired to do today’s look when looking at Brassai photos of the 20s," Tendler wrote. "Everyone looks so cool and glamorous."

    "The best way to wear bright lipstick is with almost no other makeup. I used no liner for this look, only a wash of bamboo-colored shadow (a light brown) over my lids (diffused above the crease) and a ton of mascara."

    "Red seems like a weird choice for eyeliner, since most people don’t want to look like sleep-deprived junkies, but it works as a bold liquid liner. Also, by coupling it with bold brows, you will achieve a defined look, instead of it looking like you might have allergies."
