With so many shades of lipstick and even more eyeshadow options available in the market today, it is normal to feel overwhelmed while figuring out the perfect pair of eyeshadow and lipstick colour. Even though makeup is a form of self-expression and you are free to pick and choose the colours you want to play with, some colours just work together and create a gorgeous combination.
Jewel toned eyeshadows are a great way to make your makeup pop while still keeping the look classy and sophisticated. An emerald eyeshadow with a nude lipstick colour is a powerful duo that you can never go wrong with. Matte or shimmer, the emerald eyeshadow adds drama to your makeup while the nude lipstick colour balances it out. If you do not want your entire eyelids to be green, you can also try using an emerald eyeliner or create a smokey eye by keeping the emerald eyeshadow concentrated on only the inner third of your eyelid. The Maybelline Color Sensational Liquid Matte Lipstick in the shade Barely Nude is the perfect pinky nude lipstick colour that will complement the emerald eyes.
There is nothing more classic than a bright red lipstick. Channel your inner vintage avatar by pairing a hot red lipstick with shimmery gold lids. A red lipstick colour instantly transforms your look and brightens up your pout. The Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick in the shade Dancer is a true warm-toned red that is classic while still being modern and on-trend. Cover your lids in gold glitter to complement the bold red lip. Try the Maybelline 24K Nudes Eyeshadow Palette for sparkling gold shades that are infused with metallic gold pigments. The shimmering eyeshadow shades will go hand in hand with the red lips to create a stunning look that is equal parts sultry and glamorous.
Add a twist to the monochrome makeup look by pairing two contrasting colours of the same family. This combination may sound confusing at first but the key to acing this look is keeping the pink on your eyes soft and subtle and adding a bright pop of hot pink on lips. Romantic from the Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick is a bright lipstick colour that will create a striking contrast with a pastel pink eyeshadow. If you are looking for an eyeshadow palette with natural pink shades, try The Blushed Nudes Eyeshadow Palette from Maybelline. With 12 rose-gold infused eye shadow shades, you can create endless, natural and barely-there eye makeup looks to rock with your bright pink lipstick. The pink on pink eyeshadow and lipstick colour combination is the perfect harmony of chic and fun.
Brown eyeshadow is one of the easiest eye makeup looks that suit all Indian skin tones. From deep and rich mochas to soft caramel browns, these eyeshadow colours are versatile and effortless. And what’s more, they are also super easy to style with peachy shades of lipstick. The Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lipstick in the shade Peach Personality is an easy, everyday lipstick colour that will complement the brown eye makeup.

Violet lipsticks are usually not everybody’s cup of tea, but if you have decided to step out of your comfort zone and play with this vibrant lipstick colour, colour your eyelids with a neutral and barely-there shade of taupe to balance out the lips. Vibrant Violet from the Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lipstick range is a super-saturated vibrant lipstick colour that you can rock with a sheer wash of taupe on your eyelids.
