That whole rule about playing up only one feature at a time? Forgeddaboutit. This, ladies and gents, is how a bold lip and sultry eye makeup are done! Olivia Wilde showed us the way at the Rush premiere in London over the weekend.
Let's see it in full-on close-up action...
Notice how her eyeshadow seems to complement her satin red lipstick instead of competing against it? Well, look super-close and you'll see her smoky eye isn't in your typical gray, charcoal, kohl color palette. It's... purple.
We've seen this trick used a few other times on the red carpet—Kerry Washington is also a fan of the lavender eyes + red lip combo—and it works in the weirdest (most gorgeous!) way, no?
Do you agree? Would you ever try this unexpected pairing at home? Sound off in the comments!
