And when it comes to choosing a lipstick, gloss, or liner, go with this general principle to guide you: base your selection off your natural lip color. "For example, my lips are more on the pink side," McCarthy explains. "They're a stronger pink, so I tend to stay in the pink family and the peach family." But if you have lips that skew more red in color, you're a lucky one, because you can pull off a great red or orange. And for fleshier skin tones, opt for mauves or anything that has a brown undertone.
To do this technique on the eyes, choose an eye brush of your choice, and softly sweep over the lids. For the lips, just load some up on your finger, tap on the lips, and add some gloss on top. Not only do these techniques lend a cohesive look to your style, they're time- and cost-effective, too.
