Remember when we said a soft berry lip is going to be the unexpected lipstick shade you're going to want to wear this summer? Let Mandy Moore demonstrate why the dark color works even on balmy days.

At the 42nd Annual Gracie Awards Gala in Beverly Hills last night, the This Is Us actress wore a muted berry lipstick with a demi-matte finish. The trick for choosing a shade that won't appear vampy like the berry bullets you would reach for in the fall is look for a lipstick that's three shades darker than your natural lip color and has blue undertones. The result will look like a soft bitten stain rather than a severe matte. Apply the lipstick straight from the tube or with your index finger to keep the look from being fussy when you're sweating on a humid summer day.

Moore completed the look with warm blush for a sun-kissed glow, groomed brows, and a few coats of mascara. Consider this your go-to makeup when you only have 15 minutes or less to get ready for any outdoor party this summer and don't want your look to melt off in the heat . 7 Ways to Match Your Lipstick to Your Mani
