One of my favorite Birchbox discoveries is Jouer’s Moisturizing Lip Gloss in ultra-flattering Birchbox Pink. The vitamin-packed formula soothes dry lips and adds a gorgeous fuchsia punch in a single, shimmery swoop. When I heard we’d be including more luscious colors of the gloss in our Birchbox Shop, I began dreaming up ways to put the new shades to use. Inspired by some of my favorite leading ladies, here are the looks I’ll be recreating with help from Jouer’s wonder gloss:
Beyoncé’s stylish strut down the red-carpet at this year’s Met Gala had our entire office swooning. To rock her peachy color palette coat your pucker in Shell, a shimmering coral pink and pair with a creamy blush like BY TERRY’s Blush Velouté in Peach Nude. Let your lips take center stage by keeping your look simple. Finish off by adding a single coat of blinc’s waterproof mascara in black.

We’ve been coveting Jennifer Lopez’s sun-kissed glow since the days of Bennifer. The former fly girl’s dewy skin and glossy lips always earn her a spot on our best-dressed list. To create a healthy, glowing complexion like Lopez’s, smooth on a tinted moisturizer like Jouer’s Luminizing Moisture Tint and set with a few swipes of Cargo’s Bronzer on your cheekbones. Round out the look by adding a dab of Jouer’s Moisturizing Lip Gloss in Mimosa, a shimmering golden pink.

Is there anything Frieda Pinto can’t do? Not only did PInto steal our hearts in the blockbuster hit Slumdog Millionaire, but her style is also frequently the talk of Tinsel Town. To emulate her winning look apply a soft shimmery beige-gold like stila’s Spontaneous to lids and pair it with for extra large lashes. Finish with a swipe of Jouer’s Monsoon a glazed deep wine and practice your acceptance speech.

To snag Leighton Meester’s red pout reach for Riviera—a sheer true red with a satin finish. To complete the look rim your upper lash line with theBalm® cosmetics Schwing black liquid eyeliner and apply matte blush like Alima Pure™’s Satin Matte Blush in Antique Rose to the apples of your cheeks.
Voila! A gloss for every starlet you’re channeling. Whose red-carpet look will you be stealing this summer?
