smokey eyes and a pale lip — today i have a navy blue smokey eye with peach lips, it’s pretty nice. i think my eyes are a better feature than my lips (i always look like i’m sulking) so i tend to focus more on the eyes.

no smokey eyes for me. Sometimes i wear red-pink-purple-ish (sounds very gross, but it’s the nicest colour EVER) lipstick with brambleberry-coloured lipgloss on top, and nude-like eyes, or i’ll do like purple eyeshadow, ofcourse mascara and white eyeliner. White makes my eyes very bright and big and stuff.

a bit more than ‘natural’ seems to do the trick for me, more than the smoked out eye. Unfortunately, ‘natural +’ actually takes more time & products lol

red lips always get the double take…… I like to wear looks that are different and bold, those get noticed.

I second the bold eyes. I have grey eyes and I love to wear smokey grey (makes my eyes look bluer), bright greens (limes, yellows, kelly greens), BRIGHT purples (dark smokey purples look like I have a black eye), vibrant oranges, smokey black/navy/brown.

The only colors I don’t do are pinks and reds. I look like I have hepatitis when I wear them.

Lips for me are usually a peachy color. It suits my skin tone the best.

I am pale and fair with blonde hair, so pastels with heavy liner/mascara do me well, and also strong bright colors when I really want to get noticed.
I have green eyes, so I get them to pop with purple, pink, blue, brown and silver. I Loooove green makeup, but it looks like one big green pool if I wear too much, but often I mix the green with the other colors, that work out well.

Got most compliments when I copied your babie loves mac look, it is truly great.
I used Kelly Green, Fuchsia and Violet on top of Painterly paint pot.
