MAKEUP: Lead makeup artist James Kaliardos for MAC Cosmetics wanted to create a head-turning look and he definitely caught our attention by balancing out natural, healthy-looking skin with bold lips.

"I think it's just a great choice for spring because color not only brightens up your face, it brightens up your whole atmosphere...it can really help to pull you out of depression," he said.

Kaliardos perfected models' full, opaque pouts by using a brush to apply MAC Pro Chromagraphic Pencil in Hi-Def Cyan or MAC Pro Amplified Lipstick in Violetta.
