A few weeks ago I was going to a movie with my sister and Mom, and didn't have a lot of time to get ready. Whenever I'm short on time I go with dark or red lipstick, and minimal make up elsewhere. The lipstick adds instant sophistication. With red lipstick I love doing a white or off-white shadow on the eye, and a thicker line of eye liner. (My inspiration for the red lipstick and relatively plain eye came from Carolyn Bessette Kennedy. Long ago, obviously.)

Unfortunately my camera was malfunctioning this day so most of my step-by-step photos came out blurred. Basically, I started with primer on my eyes, as always. Once it dried I brushed the vanilla (off-white) eye shadow from my eye lid all the way up to the brow.
I used an angled brush to put the brown liner on, then curled my lashes, and then put mascara on.
Last I outlined and filled in my lips with the lip pencil, and then I put the red lipstick over it. I wore a white cowl neck sweater from Bebe, which made the make up look even better.
