“I was inspired by her green heels, and the neckline of her dress,” her makeup artist Mai Quynh told InStyle.com exclusively. “I thought it would be fun to do a bright coral lip to play off of her shoes.” While the star’s metallic eye and sheer lip was the perfect complement to her graphic ensemble, we thought it would also look nice paired against casual getups, so we just had to get all the details! After a layer of foundation, Quynh used the Laura Mercier Lip Pencil in Warm Poppy for define her lips, then followed with a generous sweep of the Creme Lip Color in Tangerine ($22 and $24; lauramercier.com).

The metallic eye came next, and once she blended on a layer of the Caviar Stick in Sand Glow ($24; lauramercier.com), she then concentrated the Illuminating Eye Color in Fire Glow ($24; lauramercier.com) on Witherspoon’s crease, continuing both hues along her lower lash line. In lieu of eyeliner, Quynh blended the Matte Eye Color in Truffle ($23; lauramercier.com) at the base of Witherspoon’s top lashes for a subtle, smoldering effect. “Don’t be intimidated by color,” Quynh advised. “There are so many different textures you can use to customize the look, and stick to having color to one area—you don’t want too many competing together.”

You can rent a couture dress or a designer bag, but would you rent hair extensions?
To get the scoop on quick office party beauty tricks, we turned to Landy Dean, celebrity makeup artist at Marie Robinson salon. His simple tutorial requires only a handful of products, starting with the darkest, inkiest eyeliner you can find. Dean swears by the Nars Larger Than Life liners smudged over the waterline and lashline, topped off with a few coats of Maybelline The Falsies mascara. Before you dash off to apply product, there’s one small step that involves removing makeup. “If your foundation and concealer have caked or creased, I recommend a quick removal with a cleansing towelette and a redo to avoid heavy looking skin,” he cautions. For those who would prefer to go the easy route, apply a hydrating moisturizer using a stippling motion and a sponge. Finish the look with a dusting of BareMinerals Mineral Veil—“this will even out discolorations and give a reflective finish that still looks natural”—swap your work bag for a chic clutch, and get ready to ring in the season.
