Two-Tone Brights (As Seen at Cushnie et Ochs) To add even more dimension to your lip color, try swiping on a slightly darker color on your top lip than your bottom lip. So goes the unconventional wisdom at the Cushnie et Ochs show, where makeup artist Sammy Mourabit color-blocked with a cherry red M.A.C. lipstick on top and a bright pink on the bottom look. For a fuller pout, line with a red pencil first. For a similar look, try Hourglass Girl Lip Stylo in 'Lover'...

(Way too much for tiny humans who don't even know how to read yet, if you ask me.) Here, in celebration of their preternatural chic, five outfits inspired by the under-5 crowd.

Legendary makeup artist Trish McEvoy isn't one to keep secrets. To celebrate the launch of her new book, The Makeup of a Confident Woman, she shared some of the things she wishes all women knew—even if it means they might end up buying fewer of her products because they look so damn good.

1. The most important tool is a good mirror.
You need one that has a light and tilts upwards so you can lift your chin while looking down into the mirror; it's the best position for doing your eye makeup, says McEvoy. She uses the one from Simple Human.

Nail Contouring Is Officially a Thing

Stella McCartney loves the bare-faced look, but when it's the last day of Paris Fashion Week, even dreamy models look a little worn down. That's easy enough to fix with foundation and moisturizer—especially with legendary Pat McGrath as your makeup mistress—but this month's Stella show had an added challenge. Since catwalkers like Dilone and Nova Orchid had to dance, sing, and throw their hands in the air for McCartney's grand finale, their nails had to look perfect… even though the designer wanted them totally plain.
