The 17 Best Eye Shadow and Lipstick Pairings The 17 Best Eye Shadow and Lipstick Pairings The 17 Best Eye Shadow and Lipstick Pairings

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 just a swipe of mascara. But we’re here to tell you that if you want to flatter all of your features at once, you can absolutely pair certain shades of eye shadow and lipstick together for a gorgeous combo. It’s all about finding the hues that play together perfectly! Keep reading for our 17 favorite eye makeup and lipstick pairings, plus tips for prepping your lids and lips to test out these looks.

eye shadow + lipstick pairing #1. COPPER EYE SHADOW + BORDEAUX LIPSTICK

Dust a shimmery coppery eye shadow onto your lids, then swipe a deep, matte wine-colored lipstick across your pout for a contrasting 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

eye shadow + lipstick pairing #2. EMERALD EYE SHADOW + NUDE LIPSTICK

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 them 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 primer on hand, you can use a tiny dab of foundation or concealer on your lids and a lip liner all over your lips.
