When it comes to makeup, we women can always rely on one particular staple: lipstick. Think of how striking a bold red shade looks against a simple black dress or how flirty a pink pout is with your favorite sundress. Concealer aside, our makeup kits won't be complete without a tube or two of lipstick.

On your next date with your man, forego heavy eye makeup. Instead, put all the focus on your lipswith a swipe of crimson, nude, pink, or orange lip color. Rest assured his eyes won't be leaving you anytime soon.
