As most of you have probably figured out, the team here at MDC loves lipstick. We love the sassiness it delivers to any look, the ease of application and the instant self-esteem boost that comes with simply swiping it on. However, we also understand that there are those who may not share our sentiments toward the colorful capsules. Maybe it’s the texture or the unwanted responsibility of keeping up a bright red pout for a whole day. Whatever your reasons, you are just not giving in to the lipstick movement. We get it. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t rock a sassy lip! Makeup pros Emma Willis and Diana Shin showed us how to get four amazing looks (for four different occasions) with — wait for it — lip balms.

Hitting the town with your best girls? You want a look that stands out, no lipstick required. A brightly pigmented pink lip balm paired with a swipe of black eyeliner will do just the trick.
Top o’ the morning to ya! For brunch, you want to go for a fresh, effortless look, which is why a great peachy lip balm is just what you need. It’s neither too flashy nor understated.
Put an unexpected twist on your formal look with a creamy orange lip stain and a cat eye.
For the office, a simple eye with a subtle pop of cherry-tinted lip balm works wonders.
