Bright lips are all over the red carpets these days, and you probably can’t even walk down the street without seeing a few here and there. The latest trend is to choose bold lipsticks that have a matte finish, but how are you supposed to pair them with the rest of your makeup? To ensure that your lips are the center of attention, here’s what to do.
First, keep your eye makeup simple. You want there to be a little bit of enhancement and interest, but not enough to steal the show from your pout. Use a light eyeliner like smashbox – Always Sharp 3D Liner 3D Gunmetal to define the shape of your eyes by lining underneath your lower lash line and right on top of your upper lash lines. Finish with a shimmery eyeshadow in a neutral color and a touch of mascara.
For the rest of your face, use enough blush, bronzer and highlighter to create natural-looking contours, but be sure not to overdo it. A kit like theBalm – theManizer Sisters Luminizers Palette has everything you need to make your cheeks subtly stand out.
