Violet + Red
Violet eyes and cherry-red lips aren’t for wallflowers, but their clashing ways look fabulously modern. When paired with luminous skin, the two colors form a perfect match.

Tip: When wearing intense colors on the eyes and lips, go easy on the rouge. A neutral or rosy-brown blush will keep the clown comparisons at bay.
Berry + Green
