Olivia's Must Haves
Olivia always sports a rosy pink lip with a little bit of a sheen. To avoid looking ashy, opt for a pink hue that has a little bit of depth— more rose than white. Deeper shades also look less flirty and more polished. We like this "Nubile" shade from Tom Ford's Lip Color Shine collection.

Name: Annalise Keating
Occupation: Defense Attorney and Professor of Law

Annalise usually opts for a soft black smokey eye with touch of bronze in the center of her lid. Use a brush to blend upward from the crease. Keep your lines soft— you're going for polished, not clubby. Get you new corporate smokey eye with the Naked palette from Urban Decay.

Beauty Lesson: Don't over do it. A little liner and a tinted lip balm goes a long way.

Michaela is always on-the-go, so she keeps her makeup routine fairly simple. Her class to courtroom look always consists of dark lined eyes. For eyes that won't need to be touched up between errands, try Bobbi Brown on-Wear Eye Pencil in Jet.
This season, Michaela will be a 2L. While she will have settled into the law school lifestyle, she still won't have much time to sleep and certinaly no time for an extensive beauty routine. She always opts for a sheer tinted balm. For intense hydration with a little color try Korres Mandarin Lip Butter Sticks.

Beauty Lesson: Keep it Simple. Balmy rouge lips are always underestimated.

Dr. Bailey's Must-Haves
Need a look that's pulled together without looking "done?" Take a cue from doctor bailey and opt for a tinted lip balm. Our favorite is Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Colour Lip Balm in Jumbo Jasmine.
