At the L!fe Happens premiere, Krysten Ritter added a blast of color to her black and white Jenni Kayne ensemble by wearing orange-red heels. But it's what makeup artist Amy Nadine did next that took the entire ensemble up several notches. To complement the actress's eye-catching footwear, Nadine created a "strong and modern" makeup look that featured matching orange-red lips. Learn how to get the Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23 star's palette below.
To add a flush of color to Krysten's cheeks, Nadine used Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar in Hush ($14), a pale pink. Then, Nadine swept Chanel Illusion D'Ombre in Emerveillé ($36), a neutral champagne hue, all over Krysten's lids, followed by black liner all along the lash lines. Finally, to match Krysten's lips to her bright-colored shoes, Nadine applied Tarte LipSurgence Lip Tint ($24) in the new poppy shade, Spirited. So if the spirit moves you, give this matchy-matchy technique a try.

Julia Roberts may play the evil stepmother in the latest Snow White adaptation Mirror Mirror, but her makeup was less than loathsome at the premiere. Makeup artist Genevieve Herr created a subtle daytime eye look that works just as well at the office as it did on the red carpet.
To start, Herr applied Lancôme Liner Design in Indigo Darling (a navy blue hue) to the top lash line. By applying liner before shadow, she achieved a less stark line that goes well with a more relaxed daytime look. Next, Herr used a light-reflecting shadow in the inner corners to create the illusion of bright and open eyes. This shimmery shadow was blended with a darker plum shade that covered Julia's outer lid. (Both shades are from the Color Design Quad in Twirling in Tulle.) Herr finished with mascara on both top and bottom lashes. By mixing a luminescent shadow with a matte darker hue, Herr created a polished eye look that's ideal for daytime — and doesn't take much to update for night.

The silver color helps to bring attention to the eyes while the dark liner gives a touch of contrast. And to keep her lip color similarly fresh and sparkly, Turk applied Cover Girl NatureLuxe Gloss Balm in Peony, the perfect shade for creating fuller-looking lips.
