Do You Wear Bold Eye Shadow and Lipstick Together?



January Jones is always experimenting with her hair and makeup, and at the premiere of her movie Unknown, she broke one of the cardinal "rules" of makeup application by wearing bright gold eye shadow and ruby red lipstick together. I certainly prefer to view traditional makeup guidelines as helpful hints instead of ironclad directives, but I recognize that sometimes the rule exists for good reason. Are you, like January, unafraid to go bold, or do you stick with only having one "statement" color in your maquillage?

Gold is usually neutral but her lid color seems to have an orange undertone that clashes with her lip color - That said, this girl could wear anything and still look gorgeous

Gold/bronze is a neutral for me too...paired with red lipstick it's not really breaking the cardinal rule imo...

No, I could not pull it off. I love how gutsy January is with her makeup choices. It really makes her stand out, and not in a bad way. I'm pretty much on board with anything she wears because she's truly stunning.

But I do tend to stick to playing up one feature. I like eyes to go in one direction, not all over the place.

I also consider gold a neutral and have worn it with red lipstick numerous times. :shrug:

I'm with EmilyFrancis. Her eyeshadow looks soft and subtle to me. I consider gold a neutral.

Gold eyeshadow is fine with red lipstick. I don't consider gold a "bold" look, at least not on blonds. In fact gold eye liner is my staple product. Really the only problem is that it goes all the way up to her brow...
