Go bold with a glossy aubergine lip. Keep eyes and cheeks neutral to avoid looking too goth.

Plum + Gold
The smoky eye gets a color jolt with deep plum and dirty mauve. A hint of gold along the inside of the eye brings a luxe sparkle to this rock ’n’ roll look.

Tip: Matte nude lips can be hard to pull off. For a more supple lip, add gloss. Two favorites: YSL Golden lip gloss No. 31 ($30, yslbeautyus.com), a peach-tinged shade with a subtle golden sparkle, and Estée Lauder Pure Color lip gloss in Perfect Nude ($20, nordstrom.com), a creamy, fleshy tone.
