"This look is all about the lips," says Mellinger, and that's right on trend for this season, based on the spring '12 runways, where we saw power puckers everywhere from Jason Wu to Jen Kao.
It's also beyond simple to do — Mellinger used a lip brush to apply the lipstick on Danielle's lips, giving her an opaque, creamy pout. That's literally all there is to this look. No other products were required — the lip is so strong, your face doesn't need anything else.
