Julianne Moore, Susan Sarandon and Marcia Cross all look amazing in red lipstick. The trick? Finding the right shade of red. Experiment. Each red is different.

3. Match your manicure to your pedicure.

Not too long ago, this was still OK. Now, it looks unexciting and rather old-fashioned. Mix it up. Wear a bright pedicure and softer manicure. In addition, don't wear the same light pink or off-white nail color every week. Nail color should be fun.

4.Are you still choosing makeup based on your skin tone?

Guess what? It doesn't always work. This rule does not apply to all women because some women might be both cool and warm-toned. For lip color, for instance, a M.A.C sales woman recently told me she chooses a lipstick that enhances the person's natural lip color. The result is usually a nice, flattering match.
