How Bobbi Took Samantha from Pretty to Pretty Powerful:
Samantha's Problem: "I love how other women look in red lipstick, but it always looks too formal on me, like I'm playing dress-up."

Bobbi's Pretty Powerful Solution: Gorgeous red lips don't necessarily have to come from a tube of classic lipstick. Mix together textures, like glosses and stains, to get all the gorgeous color intensity in a soft, modern way. Try applying a sheer, shiny red tint straight onto lips, then outlining with a rosy-red lip liner using a brush to blend in edges. This achieves natural-looking definition and prevents color from feathering. Keep the rest of your makeup as fresh and natural as possible for a look that's youthful, not overdone.
