Start with a layer of a pretty pale pink.
GLOSS IT: Napoleon Perdis Lipgloss in Candy Apple, $18
Coat your lips with this super-shiny gloss. (And if it happens to get stuck in your hair, well, just make likeMiu Miu and own it!)
SHADOW IT: Smashbox Eyeshadow Palette in Fade to Black, $42
The key to off-setting the sugary sweetness of the rosy lips comes from a smokey eyeshadow. Take a cue from Hudson with a wash of champagne shadow over the entire lid. Then, smudge a darker hue on the outer corner and finish things off with a swipe of mascara.
