Beauty was all about the lip at Carmen Marc Valvo. Romero Jennings was the lead makeup artist for MAC cosmetics, and he took us through the look.

"All American, classic beauty," Jennings said. "Think fireworks and the Fourth of July."

For the strong lip they used a Cherry Lip Pencil, a new lipstick for Spring 2012 called Scarlet Ibis, and a neon pigment.

"We wanted the lip to be more sophisticated, lips have been quite bright for spring," Jennings said. He also thought this look was something regular girls should try.

"Completely wearable," he said. But he advised "spending a little more time on the lip to make it perfect."
