Bold lipstick goes well with sparkly, pared-down eye makeup!You’ve probably caught on to the fact that bold lipstick color is huge this spring. Ladies everywhere are breaking out of their comfort zones by wearing tomato-red, fuchsia, purple and neon pink shades that practically scream for attention. But what kind of eye makeup goes well with this look?

According to Glamour Magazine’s beauty blog, a “clean sparkly” eye is just what you’re looking for. A hint of shimmer and mascara is all you need on your eyes, as this will keep the attention on your vibrant lips without sacrificing definition.

To get the look yourself, you’ll need a light, shimmery eyeshadow like Bare Escentuals – Glimmer Eye Shadow. White, gray, silver, taupe, gold or pink are all good color choices – just make sure it goes with the lipstick shade you’re wearing. Use it to cover your entire eyelid.

Skip the eyeliner this time, and just use a mascara like Jane Iredale – PureLash Lengthening Mascara on your upper and lower lashes. It’s a refreshing way to amp up your eyes without overshadowing your lips!
