While smoky eyes are often a staple of red carpet looks, there was one star who decided to don subtle eye makeup and instead play up her pout – Jewel. The blonde-haired beauty, who performed a song during Sunday’s Emmy Awards show, looked simply stunning in her classically applied makeup.

Jewel followed the cardinal rule of rocking a crimson-colored smile – she kept the rest of her makeup minimal, using a hint of peach powder to add warmth to her complexion.

Allure.com even included Jewel on their list of the best beauty looks at the Emmys, writing, “She deserved cheers on the red carpet for her glamorous choice of scarlet lipstick. We like how she wore them with soft, peach blush, simply lined eyes, and an uncomplicated updo – it allowed her red lips to shine without competition.”

Women interested in mimicking Jewel’s red lips should remember to condition their pucker with a colorless lip balm before applying product, as bright shades can highlight flakes, cracks and other imperfections. Babor B. Young Lip Balm moisturizes lips and also helps to reduce fine lines around the mouth, which can cause dark lipstick to feather.ADNFCR-3538-ID-19934374-ADNFCR
