If you thought choosing an eye makeup look--be it a smokey eye or bright eyeliner--for your dinner date was tough, wait up! Once you finalize that, you gotta do your lip makeup to match it. We know...we know! All of this could be a tad too overwhelming. How to coordinate eye and lip make up, especially when we are in hurry?  That’s why we’ve got a list of the top eight eye makeup and lipstick pairings that you could totally rely on for every occasion


1. Pair bronze eye makeup with…

Dewy nude lips, making it perfect as one of the most common lip colour and eye makeup combinations. The sheen of the eye makeup will add the right amount of glitz while the glossy lips in a beige, neutral tone add shine to your look without taking too much away from it. A perfect bronzed goddess kinda combo! 

#BBPicks: We love the ‘Nude Brick’ shade of the Lakmé Absolute Skin Dew Satin Lipstick which gives that perfect dewy look with its buttery texture. And even if you have dark or dual-toned lips, this shade is easily visible as it gives high coverage in just one stroke to complete your flawless lip makeup!  

Another neat trick is to highlight your bronze eye makeup with a brown liner. Look, no matter what Western beauty gurus say, we Indians love our liners and kajals. Something about a makeup look without liner feels incomplete, doesn’t it? But switch out the usual black liner for something trendy and experimental like the new brown shade of your favourite kajal liner – Lakmé Eyeconic Kajal - Classic Brown. Smudge out the wings for a soft look, and you’re done.


2. Pair lush lashes with…

Creamy bright lips. Pinkish red lipstick is a fiery shade that will hog all the attention while also suiting our Indian skin tones. Defined, luscious lashes with subtle eye makeup offset it to perfection by giving the makeup look a minimal, low-key flair. 

#BBPicks: Whether you are on the fairer or darker side, the ‘Red Blast’ or ‘Red Alert’ of Lakmé Absolute Skin Dew Satin Lipstick is the perfect shade for recreating this lip makeup. Easy to apply with its satin texture, sport a pillow-soft and colourful pout. Complete your look with Lakmé Eyeconic Kajal - White to make your eyes look even bigger and brighter! It is clinically approved for sensitive eyes with grape seed oil so go ahead and tightline and waterline your eyes without worry.


3. Pair gold glitter eye makeup with…

Rosy-stained lips. When you get your glitter liner on, be warned that all eyes in the room will be on your peepers. Keep it that way with rose-toned lips, which will be just the subtle accessory your makeup look needs. 

#BBPicks: With nine pink shades to choose from, just opt for one that you vibe with best! And we absolutely love the dynamic range of Lakmé Absolute Skin Dew Satin Lipstick as this skin-friendly lipstick has hyaluronic acid and avocado oil, perfect for dry and chapped lips. Get nourished and moisturised lips easily with this clean and healthy makeup choice! 

A fun little tip on how to do eye makeup for this look, just pair the Lakmé Absolute Explore Eye Shadow Stick - Shimmering Gold with Lakmé Eyeconic Kajal - Sparkling Black. Why go for the usual black when you can look like a fun disco ball? In the form of a creamy stick, highlight your eyes with the ‘Shimmering Gold’ after lining your eyes with the ‘Sparkling Black’. With the kajal being so reliable, it's like having your own personal makeup bodyguard, ready to fend off smudges, tears and water, transfers and touch-ups all day long.


4. Pair winged eyes with…

Satin red lips. As one of the best lip colour and eye makeup combinations, it’s a match made in makeup heaven. The feline flick with the luscious rouge pout is enough to lend any outfit a classy touch. Easy to do, all you need to do is as a wing and some red lipstick for a class look. 

#BBPicks: If you’re in the mood to add some colour to your look, try out the Lakmé Eyeconic Kajal - Royal Blue for the royalty you are. With this regal and bold shade, jazz up your usual winged liner with some graphic, floating designs. Of course, this calls for deep, burnt red lips which you can get with the Lakmé Absolute Skin Dew Satin Lipstick - Red Alert. If you are conscious about your chapped lips being highlighted, fret not as this satiny-finish high-powered serum lipstick makes sure your lips look soft and stay soft throughout the day!

Dark, maroon lips. The sultry smokey eye is every party girl’s Saturday night staple. To complement it, a coat of dewy maroon lipstick is the answer. With its subtle touch of colour shining through the darkness, it will seal the sexy makeup look to perfection! 

#BBPicks: Lakmé Absolute Skin Dew Satin Lipstick - Red Dove is the perfect dewy kiss for your lips as it adds a hint of shine to the overall dark look. Riding on the idea of vibrant colours for the traditional smokey look, you can also line your eyes with the Lakmé Eyeconic Kajal - Turquoise. A bright shade that gives a pop of colour, it rescues your eyes from being hidden underneath all those dark shades.


6. Pair blue lashes with…

Glossy pink lips. Eye-catching, cobalt eyelashes are a conversation starter by themselves. When paired with shiny pink lips, they retain their spunk and give the look a chic, feminine touch. 

#BBPicks: What better way to pull off the trendy blue lashes than to commit to the colour for the rest of your eye makeup? Lakmé Eyeconic Kajal’s ‘Midnight Blue’ is just the perfect shade of dark blue to make our dark brown eyes pop. Get a vibrant look in one stroke - just twist it and apply! To complete this gorgeous Barbiecore look, you already know that we’d recommend the ‘Pink Play’ shade of the Lakmé Absolute Skin Dew Satin Lipstick. We’ll be definitely sporting this glam look for the Barbie movie, will you?


7. Pair gold eyes with…

Deep burgundy lipstick. Shimmery gold eyes and dark, edgy lips is the ultimate recipe for a glamazon-ready makeup look. Finish off with a defined reverse cat eye that screams retro fun. 

#BBPicks: Who doesn’t love the brown-gold smokey look that makes your eyes shine like golden sunsets? Well, why ruin that with dark, contrasting black liners and kajals when the whole point is to keep it subtle and glowing? Instead, opt for something lighter that suits the theme such as a dark olive green shade found in the Lakmé Eyeconic Kajal - Forest Green. Extremely pigmented, this vibrant shade for a reverse cat eye wing is just what you need to complete your eye makeup. 

And, we know it is not easy choosing a dark lipstick when we are out the whole day. Whether it is eating a meal or even just taking small sips of coffee, at the end of the day, we are all victims to the butthole lips as the lipstick magically vanishes from the centre of our lips. Well, we have found a solution for that with the Lakmé Absolute Skin Dew Satin Lipstick - Red Rebel. Now, wear this pretty dark colour without fear as it lasts for 24 hours without budging. And it isn’t drying in the slightest, making you wonder if you have a moisturising lip balm on top!


8. Pair green wings with…

Creamy nude lips. If black is too boring for your winged liner, a bright pop of green will be right up your alley. Meanwhile, a pair of peachish-nude puckers will infuse some colour into your look without going overboard.  

#BBPicks: Before Barbie’s expansive and impressive PR moves took over the beauty trends as well, green was supposed to be the colour of 2023. Well, if you are tired of seeing pinks everywhere and want to try out something new while still staying in trend, draw your wings with the Lakmé Eyeconic Kajal - Regal Green. Thanks to its sharp design and creamy formula, it effortlessly brings about the same results as a liquid liner. And a cute nude shade with cool undertones, the Lakmé Absolute Skin Dew Satin Lipstick - Nude Rose is the one for this lip makeup. If you are bored with the usual matte base, it gives a hint of shine thanks to its dewy finish. 

Coordinate your eye and lip make up like a boss now: choose shades that flirt, not fight, for a harmonious face that's pure elegance! Elevate your makeup game and leave everyone mesmerized by your new look.
