Many people preach that it is a make-up rule that you should invest in either eyes or lips, but that is not true at all!
It is definitely a smart idea to put the most focus on just one area if you find it easy to feel overwhelmed, but there is nothing to say must have light lips if you have dark eyes and vice versa. Had it been a real rule, smoky eyes and red lips would not have been one of the most classic looks;)
It just gives more balance in the face not to have all the focus in one place.
Last Friday I had a very visible make-up on my eyes, and in the pictures I showed in the blog I had bright lips because I felt it right then. Then I changed after an hour or so and wanted darker lips instead, and painted on Dr. Hauschka's lip pencil in the shade 06 Auberige, and I enjoyed it like the fish in the water in it! :)
Surely it was nice? :) Read mine previous posts to see the look with nude lips.
Something I usually think about instead is blush, because you have a lot on both eyes, cheeks and lips, the make-up can actually go from balance to "messy".
My tip to you is in other words:
Focus on eyes and lips - a little blush
Focus on eyes or lips - more blush
Then you get a harmonious impression with a nice balance in the face no matter how you make up eyes and lips!
Hope you all have a wonderful end to the week ♥
