Tess Sullivan, Ralph Lauren Designer, Reveals Her One Beauty Splurge

"I tend to buy cheap drugstore makeup," Tess Sullivan, a designer at Ralph Lauren, told us recently. "The only thing I invest in is my lipstick -- it stays better and feels good on my lips."

That would be Chanel Rouge Coco in Paradis, to be exact. Even though her lip look is definitely statement-worthy, her beauty philosophy is fairly simple. "You don't have to wear much to make a big impact with your makeup." We couldn't agree more.
