You can pair a bright lip with smoldering eye makeup!It’s no secret that summertime is the season to paint your pout in bright hues. From magenta to coral to fire engine red, ladies everywhere may embrace the warm weather by sporting a bold-colored smile.

Though it’s a fun trend, it can also make selecting eye makeup a challenge – the shadow shouldn’t overwhelm your lip color, and a smoky eye can instantly take a red lip from beachy to burlesque.

It’s easy to opt for a simple look, a dusting of sheer powder and a single coat of mascara, but you shouldn’t be afraid to emphasize your eyes as you rock a bright pout. And, with the right color palette and application, it’ll be a breeze.

The first step is to pull away from traditional blacks and browns, which can be too dark and harsh to pair with a magenta smile. Instead, opt for silvers, coppers and golds – these neutral shades will help your eyes smolder without overwhelming your pretty pout.

To try this look, line the outside corner of your eyes with a light-colored liner, like GloMinerals Metallic gloEye Pencils Trio, which come in bronze, copper and platinum. The shades are ideal for subtle yet smoky summertime eyes.

After, apply a shimmery sheer shadow, like Paula Dorf‘s Eye Color Glimmer, to add a subtle wash of color that will make your eyes pop.ADNFCR-3538-ID-19881690-ADNFCR
