    When in doubt, paint the town red—especially in this tomato-hued lip from Ohne Titel A/W 2013. "It's a timeless, classic look—one of my favorite ever, actually" admits Guilis. To achieve a foolproof finish all night long, she recommends an all-in-one lip pencil to slip in your purse, such as NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Red Square (3). "It has these wonderful orange tones, it goes on easy, and a little goes a long way to outline and fill in the lip," she explains. Infuse a similar texture throughout the look; in soft-focus skin (Hourglass Cosmetics Ambient Lighting Powder, 2) and a subtle shimmer at the inner corners (Milani Shadow Eyez 12 HR Wear in Winter White, 1).
