Makeup Rules Are Meant To Be Broken

The one thing I firmly believe is that makeup rules are meant to be broken. The rules do serve a purpose but I see them more as flexible guidelines than steadfast rules. Take, for instance, today's makeup look that I am rocking. Beauty mavens will tell you that you should never pair a bold eye with a bold lip. Why? For some it may be too much for me it is not, as long as everything else is a blank canvas. As you can see I kept the blush neutral and to a bare minimum, also the rest of my face is matte and there is not a hint of shimmer or sparkle which makes a bold lip and eye easier to rock.

  15. I agree with you! Because a few years ago, I used to pair a bold eye and bold lip and people used to say, it looked like it couldn't work with the "beauty rules" To me rules are meant to be broken when it comes to beauty, makeup, and even fashion choices. I love your makeup look here it is so beautiful :)

    1. Yeah I have heard that so many times too but I think it depends on the execution if you add shimmer or a bold blush that would be too overpowering for this look. Keep it simple and focus on the eyes and lips and use complimentary colors it will work.
