Neutral eyes and statement lips!

Hello Everyone

You all know that I have been going through a bold and bright lips phase these days. So, I thought why not share my favourite way of wearing bold and bright statement lips - i.e. neutral eye make-up with winged liner and simple cheeks with a nice highlighter.

My idea of statement lips that my rest of the make-up should be as neutral as possible so that the lips really stand out on the face, but as the same time I don't my lips to scream look at me, look at me! Therefore, I pair such bright lips with winged eyeliner to slightly tone down the brightness of the lips. On cheeks I prefer to keep them simple, but, I really love to add a lot of highlighter on my cheek bones to add a glow on the face which otherwise might look very pale with such bright lips.
