Case #1: Mary-Kate Olsen vs Ashley Olsen
Although they are both wearing a heavily rimmed eye with nude lipstick, Ashley definitely did a better job here by going with a warmer lipstick and adding in blush. Mary-Kate just looks dead and washed out.
The Wrong: Mary-Kate Olsen vs The Right: Ashley Olsen
Lesson Here: Wear blush to warm up your complexion and steer clear of lipsticks that are too close to your complexion.
Case #2: Rachel Bilson vs Blake Lively
Note to Rachel: Hun, this is the MET gala, which is equivalent to the Oscars of fashion! You can’t just show up wearing barely any foundation, gunmetal eyeshadow and gloss. Take a cue from Blake – even out your skin (especially around the nose) with a foundation, wear a bit of shimmer around the tear duct to instantly add in some glamor and throw some color on those lips!
The Wrong: Rachel Bilson vs The Right: Blake Lively
Lesson Here: Know the occasion and dress and do your makeup accordingly. The last thing you want to do is show up at a formal event looking like you barely tried at all.
