Beautiful braids are an easy way to go from casual to glam in a flash. We adore Nia Long's look which she rocked with creamy mauve lipstick and dark, ebony eyeliner.

You can never go wrong with a pretty pink lip as Tatyana Ali proved when she smiled for the cameras. Notice the streak of green eyeliner, too. What a dreamy pair!
