Choose colours wisely
Apart from the usual brown-black smokey eye and red lips (that look good on almost everyone), choose colours that go don’t overpower each other and are equally noticeable. For example; purples work gorgeously well with deep reds.

Ensure the rest of your makeup is subtle
Keep your face makeup minimal—go easy on the all the contouring, baking and bronzing. Pick a soft, sheer highlighter over the blinding one and avoid adding too much colour to your cheeks. Let the focus be on your bold eyes and lips!
Choose the same colour for eyes and lips
If you wish to play safe and aren’t comfortable with too many colours, choose similar colours. Take cues from Lily Collins who paired burgundy smokey eyes with a lip colour in the same shade. Gorg!
Skipping eyeliner is okay
While going for bold eyes, skipping eyeliner is completely fine, as long as your eyeshadow is of a statement-making, dark hue. If you’re going for something like gold shadow, you can darken the outer corners of the eye using a dark brown shade for a smoked out effect.
Embrace various textures
Don’t fret to pair glitters with mattes—go for bold glossy lids or shimmery lids coupled with a matte lip or vice versa. Doing this will add a whole lotta dimension to your look!
