Help us with something, will you? Help us break the age-old rule of either bold lips or bold eyes and never both together. Why can’t you have the best of both? Colours are fun to play with and especially with makeup you can create interesting looks by carefully pairing colours. We at BeBeautiful gently nudge you to step outside your comfort zone and try these colourful lip-and-eye-combos that are sure to get you a few compliments!
Before you begin: Prep your eye lids and lips with primer before you apply the eye shadow and lipstick. This will help the colours look brighter, more even and last longer. If you do not have a primer, a dab of foundation or concealer will do the trick!

Blue eyes + nude lips
Sweep an electric blue eye shadow on the entire upper lid and use a cotton swab dipped in micellar water to clean up the edges. Use the cotton swab to create an elongated cat eye. Line your upper lash line with a black eye liner and apply two or three coats of mascara.
Get it with: Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Eye Shadow Palette in Silver – you could wet the eye shadow brush in water and then apply the blue eye shadow for a more intense finish. Use Lakmé 9to5 Naturale Gel Kajal and Lakmé Absolute Flutter Secrets Dramatic Eyes Mascara on the eyes.
Gold eyes + dark berry lips
Apply a golden eyeshadow all over your upper eye lid and draw a thin line with an eye pencil close to your upper lash line. Apply two or three coats of mascara to lengthen your lashes. Line your lips with a dark berry lip liner and apply a lipstick in a matching shade.
Get it with: For the eyes, use the Lakmé 9to5 Eye Quartet in Silk Route and Lakmé 9to5 Naturale Gel Kajal with the KKK Lakmé Absolute Mascara.
Brown eyes + brown lips
Go matchy-matchy with this look which pairs a soft brown shimmery eye with a very sultry brown colour on the lips. The arched, filled-in brows only add to the overall look in a beautiful way.
Get this with: Use the Kareena Kapoor Khan Lip Definer in Copper and line your entire upper eye lid and your lower lash line with this (Yes, you read that right. You can use a lip pencil on your eyes, works just the same!). Smudge out the coppery colour using the sponge provided at one end of the lip pencil. Swipe a golden eye shadow just on the centre of your eye lid. Load your lashes with Kareena Kapoor Khan Lakmé Absolute Mascara. Use the same lip pencil on your lips for a look that has complimentary eyes and lips.
Yellow-orange eyes + coppery orange lips
There’s something very attractive about using yellow-orange tones on Indian skin tones. Use a yellow shadow on the eye lid and an orange colour in the crease. Use an orange lipstick and top it off with clear gloss for this look.
Get this with: For the eyes, use the eye shadows from Lakmé 9to5 Eye Quartet in Silk Route and create this look. Use the Lakmé 9to5 Naturale Gel Kajal and Lakmé Absolute Flutter Secrets Dramatic Eyes Mascara for the dramatic streak of black in an otherwise colourful eye. Use a lipstick like Kareena Kapoor Khan Lakmé Absolute Pout Definer in Orange Showgirl and a clear gloss on top.
Teal eyes + fuchsia pink lips
This look is as colourful as it is playful and attention grabbing. The combination of the teal and black eye liner tones down the eyes and the lips are bold in a deep fuchsia.
Get this with: Lakmé Absolute Shine Line in Sparkling Oliveand the Lakmé Eyeconic Pen (Fine Tip) to get the look. On your lips, use a shade like LAKMÉ 9to5 Naturale Matte Sticks Lipstick in Fuschia Alley to get this look.
Silver eyes + mauve-y pink lips
Silver and pink make a classic combination. The drama of a silver eye is perfectly complimented by a muted pink lip. It is a girl-goes-glamorous look, perfect for a girl’s night out!
Get this with: Use silver and black eye shadows on your eyes from the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Eye Shadow Palette in Silver and line your upper lash line with the Lakmé Eyeconic Kajal. Use a mauve pink shade like Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Lip Color in Silky Blush.
