The trick to pulling off a deep red lip? According to Maybelline's global makeup artist Yadim, it's all about balance. To offset the textured lips he created at Jason Wu's spring show, he kept the rest of the face natural. And for the lip color itself, he layered a blue-based red and an orange-y red, both from Maybelline's new Vivid Matte collection.

Among all the matte styles this spring, the glossy red lips at Nina Ricci was one of the knockout beauty moments of the season. Makeup artist Aaron de Mey chose a "Coca Cola red" that he set with powder and lined in pencil. And to get that extra vinyl "new car finish" he added another layer of tomato red gloss on top.
