Smokey eyes are a classic and timeless beauty look that makes a statement (and guarantees some eyes your way), during the wedding season to holiday parties and everything in between! With eyes so bold we know you can’t help but wonder what lip colors go best with smokey eyes without looking too overdone, if there is such a thing (we don’t think so 😉). From trendy fall lip colors to bold reds, the combinations are endless. Here are some lipstick shades you should swipe on that pretty pout to flatter those smoldering eyes!
Lip Colors that Look Best with Smokey Eyes
When you got all the drama on the eyes people usually advise against bold lip colors, but we like breaking the rules here because more is more (if Rihanna lives by that motto, so do we). Pause that smokey eye tutorial, blend your shadow to perfection and pop on some lashes because it’s time to bring on the seduction with the best lipsticks to pair with a smokey eye! Proceed with caution because it’s about to get real smokey in here 😉.
A nude/brown lip is a super popular lip colors that goes with smokey eyes and it’s by far the most popular eyeshadow and lipstick combination (seen on red carpets like all the time). Get a lil’ monochromatic moment when you pair a warm brown like “Cristiano” from our upcoming Beauty by Bianca x LiveGlam KissMe Collab (launching Oct. 1st) with your brown smokey eye!
Soft Pink Lips
Wanna bring a delicate touch your spicy AF smokey eye? Grab a soft pink lippie like our “Baby G” matte liquid lipstick from our Les Do Makeup x LiveGlam KissMe Collab or our “Happily Ever After” KissMe lippie!
You’ve probably seen this combination and it’s the pinnacle of glamour, if we say so ourselves! If you really want to turn some heads, pair your smokey eye with a berry red or even a bold pomegranate red! Try our “Baby Mama” lippie from our Les Do Makeup collab or our “You Da Pom” lippie!
Want your eyes to do all the talking? Similar to nude lipsticks, a peachy toned lippie will bring a touch of softness to your overall look. Swipe on our sexy peachy-nude lippie, “Promiscuous”, to complete your look!
If you’re trying to stand out from the crowd, get yourself a wine or berry toned lipstick to go with your smokey eye! Opt for a brighter plum during the day and a bolder/darker one for a perfect date night look. Grab our “Mi Amor” KissMe lipstick from our Fall Faves bundle (which, btw, are all great shades for smokey eyes) for the daytime and “Bachelorette” for the nighttime, because wine not?! Remember to make sure you exfoliate your lips, because dark lipsticks can get messy and we want a smooth and flawless application.
