Like it or not, there are rules when it comes to makeup. From lipstick to eyeliner, there are certain ways you should apply, mix and choose your products. Fortunately, not every rule needs to be followed 100 percent of the time – especially the one that says you should pick just one feature of your visage to play up.
If you're wearing a bright lip color, it's usually a good idea to stick with a neutral eye makeup look and a natural blush. Colorful eyeshadow calls for subdued lips. However, if you want to be daring for a specific event coming up this holiday season, it's perfectly okay to play up two of your features.
Consider wearing a bold lip color, like one of the reds from Jane Iredale – PureMoist LipColour SPF 18. Pair your bright lips with equally dark eyes, using a black eyeliner like Blinc – Eyeliner. For a retro look, wing the tips of the line outwards to form a cat-eye. The effect will be glamorous and perfectly festive for whatever the occasion may be.
