Jessica Alba's glam lips

Her beestung lips ooze sex appeal and liven up classic outfits. 
 
> Who can copy it?
Red hot lips like Jessica's suit fresh complexions but darken dull skin. The key is to choose a lipstick in light dusty pink: a softer shade will freshen and lighten up your face.
 
> Technique
Keep your lips natural. Concentrate on the texture for a subtle result. Before applying your lippy, use a large brush to sweep a little loose powder over your lips, then choose a matte lipstick and apply with your finger to obtain a plumper effect that lasts for ages. Go for shades of redcurrant if you have dark skin or pink if you're fair skinned. The effect should be fresh rather than severe. 
Tip: Instead of using lipliner, remove any excess color by dabbing a cotton bud along the edge of your lips. It looks a lot fresher. And for added pazzaz, apply a final touch of gloss over your lipstick at the center of the lips.
