Actress Anika Noni Rose rocked fiery red lips and soft silver lids at the SAG-AFTRA Foundation Conversations for "Roots" in Los Angeles on Monday -- and she's giving us the perfect go-to beauty look for summer soirees! Don't you agree? If so, here's how you can get the look!

It goes without saying that summer time was made for bold lips and sun-kissed skin. Lucky for us, we've got the sun-kissed bit year-round (Thanks, melanin). And if bold lips are that special something that you only pull out when the mercury rises, then Anika Noni Rose's beauty look at the SAG-AFTRA Foundation Conversations for "Roots" is just for you!

The Tony Award winning actress was a vision on the red carpet sporting matte tangerine-red lips and a slight flush in her cheeks. For an ethereal edge, the actress lightly dusted her lids and the inner corners of her eyes with a metallic steel hue and topped her peepers with a set of feathery falsies.

We love the look for its elegance and sheer simplicity, and if you're looking for a summer look that's a little more than just the bare-bones beauty look of dewy skin and balmy lips, this look is definitely a winner. Besides, red lips are the perfect way to up the flirty factor in your beauty look this season!


Here are three products to try to recreate this look:
