Be the boss with a red lip, high pony and glasses

Less may be more in some cases, but add a bright red lip to a basic ponytail hairstyle, and you’ll be looking more like the boss than the office assistant. One of the best ways to wear red lipstick is to make it the focal point of your look. In this case, the rest of the makeup is neutral, the hair is pulled back, and the glasses are optional.
Start by evening out your skin tone with CC cream. It has skin-loving ingredients that treat your skin while also providing sheer coverage. Dark-colored concealer blends easily into CC cream, so skip the bronzer or contour cream and just buff a darker concealer under your cheekbones and up around your hairline.

Instructions
1. Apply CC cream to your skin with a foundation brush using downward strokes.
2. Apply dark-colored concealer below your cheekbones and on the upper corners of your forehead with the applicator wand. Gently buff the product into your skin with the foundation brush.
3. Pat pale pink blush onto your cheeks with a cheek brush.
4. Press the felt tip of the liquid eyeliner near the outer corner of your eye. Angle it so it points upward toward the tail of the brow. Create a second diagonal line above it to form a small triangle. Fill in the triangle, and line your upper lash line as well.
5. Apply one or two coats of mascara to your upper and lower lashes.
6. Apply red lipstick to your lips.

A stacked braid is what it sounds like, one braid stacked on top of another. The bottom braid is usually a little more flowy or loose, while the top braid is structured and tight. This creates a fun contrast.
