Not quite pink and not quite red, raspberry is a trending color in the makeup world right now. Just like the fruit itself, raspberry lipsticks come in a variety of hues—some on the lighter, brighter side and some deeper and darker. Follow the instructions below to get the look.
Step 1: Illuminate Your SkinBuy now with free delivery
Beautiful on its own or as a base for your foundation, Becca’s Backlight Priming Filter gives your skin that lit-from-within glow. Hydrated, healthy skin is the key to a beautiful glow, so after moisturizing, apply a thin layer of the primer, starting at the center of your face and moving outward. Apply your foundation if desired, or go for a more natural, bare-faced look.

Step 2: Hydrate With a Rosy GlowBuy now with free delivery
Because your lips are taking center stage for this look, the idea behind the rest of the look is simple radiance. Use your fingertips to blend the creamy formula across your cheekbones for a subtle glow with just a hint of pink. Not only does this product boast the staying power of a stain, it hydrates your skin with shea butter and coconut oil.

Step 3: Give Your Eyes Some LoveBuy now with free delivery
Bare lids are totally fine in this look, but if you want to accentuate your eyes without drawing attention away from your lips, blend a nude-tan eyeshadow—like “Latte” from Tarte’s Toasted Eyeshadow Palette—onto your eyelids. (You’ll also be adding a little bit of shimmer in the next step.) Then, swipe on a couple of coats of a lengthening mascara to add glam without overpowering your total look.

Apply this liquid highlighter to any feature you’d like to accentuate: above your cheekbones, down the bridge of your nose, across your eyelids, on your cupid’s bow or under your brow arch. Its lightweight texture and pigments and pearls offer a subtle, dewy glow—without looking glittery.

Step 5: Line 'Em UpBuy now with free delivery
Lip liner lets you better define the shape of your lips and helps prevent your lip color from fading. Using a shade similar to the lip color you’ve got, line your lips just outside of their natural shape. To boost the wow factor and enhance your color’s staying power, lightly fill in your lips with the liner before moving on to your lipstick or stain.
