One of the best parts about downtime at a photo shoot is grilling the professionals for hair and makeup tips. At a recent shoot, makeup artist Manami Ishikawa painted the models' lips with the most pigmented, glossy shade of plum. I couldn't help but ask what she was using. Turns out, it was an old trick I had learned years ago but had cast aside. In a jar, she mixed a deep purple lipstick with Vaseline to create a moisturizing lip shine. Try one of these shades to make your own concoction:

Satin lipstick in Russian Doll, $24, Nars; Satin lipstick in Rebel, $15, MAC; Rouge Allure Velvet in L'Exquise, $33, Chanel
