When doing your makeup for an evening look, most make-up artists recommend that you choose either your lips or your eyes as the focus. Heavy eye make-up and dark lipstick looks something like the pages of Vogue Circa 1984, and you don’t want that, do you? If you like intense eye makeup with layers of different shades, thick liner and mascara, then you are better off toning down your lips by doing a neutral shade or keeping them sheer and glossy. If you have great lips and want to play them up with a sassy red or deep plum, then you can use just a touch of liner on the lash line, and a neutral sweep of shadow. If the focus is on your lips, make sure to take care of them by moisturizing and exfoliating so your lip color doesn’t look flaky on dry lip skin.
