Expert tip

"Depending on how light or dark; subtle or striking the lip look du jour, play with layering the stains," says celebrity makeup artist and the man behind Skinn Cosmetics, Dimitri James. "For a fresh, light-wash look, just use one coat (of either the stain or the gloss). If going for a more intense pucker palette, build away and add as many layers until the desired color is achieved."

Give your skin a healthy dose of hydration and UV ray protection for the New Year with Skin Authority's Sunscreen Moisturizer SPF 30 UVA ($38).
