Looking to shake up your everyday look? This spring, try a statement-making lipstick or gloss to add a little pizazz to your look. We consulted with Lauren Conklin of FACE Stockholm to learn how to get the look. Step 1: Conklin prepped skin with a spray of Ginseng Toner and the super-light Green Tea Antioxidant Cream before applying Picture Perfect Foundation to even out skin tone. To get the complexion glowy-perfect, apply dabs of highlighter in "Prosperity" to cheeks, nose, lids, and brow bones.

Step 2: To complement a bold lip, Conklin went for simple eye makeup. To define the eyes, apply a thin line of "Cake" liner in Navy using an angled brush before applying black mascara. "For extra drama, try lining the bottom lashes too," Conklin advises.

Step 3: Starting at the inside of the brow and working out, apply short strokes of "Storm" brow shadow with a small angled brush to give shape and definition.

Step 4: For a fresh, dewy look, Conklin applies dabs of hot pink cream blush to the apples of the cheeks, using fingers to blend up the cheek bone.

Step 5: To create a strong, statement-making lip, prep lips with a moisturizing balm before outlining the mouth in a natural "Espresso" liner.

Step 6: Using a brush, carefully apply dabs of FACE's #59 gloss, starting the center of the lip and blending out. For extra 'oomph,' layer gloss with magenta lipstick in "Instinct" to get a super-saturated hue.
