When it comes to makeup, you likely only play up one feature at a time. For example, you probably pair a dramatic smoky eye with tinted lip balm or a vivid red lipstick with a swipe of mascara. But we’re here to tell you that you can certainly pair certain shades of eye shadow and lipstick together for a gorgeous combo. Keep reading for our nine favorite eye and lipstick pairings, plus tips for prepping your lids and lips for makeup.

1. Copper Eye Shadow + Bordeaux Lipstick

Dust a shimmery coppery eye shadow on your lids, then swipe on a deep, matte wine-colored lipstick for a contasting makeup look that can’t be beat for a night out.

Try: L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Metallics Eye Shadow in Brass Knuckles and L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Liquid Lipstick in Stirred

2. Emerald Eye Shadow + Nude Lipstick

Break out the green eye shadow (for St. Patrick’s Day or any other day of the year) and wear it alongside a neutral nude lip so that your eyes are the star of the show.

Try: L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24 HR Eye Shadow in Golden Emerald and L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints/Lips Matte in Skinny Dip

3. Champagne Eye Shadow + Coral Lipstick

5. Violet Eye Shadow + Berry Lipstick

ICYMI, the it color of 2018 just so happens to be purple—and one of the prettiest purples to put on your lids is violet. Pair it with a darker lipstick in a berry tone for a stand-out makeup look.

7. Gold Eye Shadow + Red Lipstick

All that glimmers is gold—and when you apply this sparkly hue to your lids, it’s the perfect complement to a classic red lip.

8. Brown Eye Shadow + Peach Lipstick

Regardless of your eye color, you can’t go wrong with brown eye shadow, as it flatters everyone. Paint your lips with peach lipstick for a work-appropriate makeup look.

9. Taupe Eye Shadow + Violet Lipstick

Like we told you earlier, purple is huge in 2018. This time, wear it on your lips in violet, and keep your lids relatively bare in taupe.

How to Prep Your Lids and Lips for Makeup

Once you’ve chosen which shades of eye shadow and lipstick you want to wear, don’t apply the, just yet. First, use an eye makeup primer and a lip primer to help create a smooth base for the rest of your makeup application. If you don’t have primers on hand, you can use a tiny dab of foundation or concealer in a pinch.
