  1. I would say both to be honest..

    I think they both have a time and place (for me sometimes at the same time!! 😉 )

    I think I chose Bold Lips just because it’s something that isn’t too complicated for most people to do..

    With practice a bold lip can make an otherwise neutral look really pop!

    Where as with bold eyes, there’s a little more work to be done.

    As I said, I love both!! But especially around winter, a bold lip is just beautiful and classic!

    Since I wear glasses, I tend to prefer a bold eye so they stand out :)

    Thinking back… going out on the town atleast 3 nights a week and living with a 100 girls during 4 years of college I never once saw anyone wearing/ using lipstick! Always just a sheer gloss or chapstick and a bold eye.

  4. I used to be a bold eyes person. But I’ve come to really love a neutral eye and bold lip. :) It’s so chic.

    I’m all about the eyes! My lips are super small! Bold lips are not for me!
    But I must admit I’ve always wanted to rock the red/fucsia/orange lip!!!

    Bold eyes all the way! Black liquid flicky eyeliner is my signature look and I get tonnes of compliments on my eyes. Plus once it’s on, you don’t remember it’s there, whereas anything you put on your lips makes you feel like it’s constantly there and gets in the way of eating, drinking, kissing etc. I much prefer bold dark eyes and nude or nothing on my lips.

    I think it depends upon which feature you are trying to emphasize or “play up.” since my best facial feature are my eyes, i chose bold eyes. But, i do bold lips every so often to prevent being predictable.

    Depends on the season…Fall and Winter I go for the bold lips.

    Usually I go for a bold eye, but lately I’m loving my bold berry and plum lipsticks! I think it’s the time of year :)

    I love bold eyes too, but bold lips personally look better on me.

    Bold lips are just so classic to me, a la 1950s.

  12. I think I answered this question before…several months ago, at least within this year. And my answer then as it is now. Both…but not at the same time. Either one or the other. Maybe the question was phrased a little differently then.

    I wish I can pull off bold lips, but I always feel like my lips are too wide… I feel that it overpowers everything on my face when I wear bold lips. I wish I could though.

    I have always been bold eye person.

    I like a bold eye because I never have to retouch my eye makeup. But lips, I’m constantly worried if I have to touch up because of eating, normal fading, etc.

    I can’t choose! I think I normally go with a bold lip cause I’m not that good at doing my eyes. I did a crazy bold lip last night that were hot pink with a slash of teal in the middle.
