I ALWAYS go for a red lip and neutral eyes with a red dress. Also, It’s easier to wash off after a night of drinking and partying. And if you are drinking red wine (like me, the wino) then it doesn’t stain as noticebly. A smokey eye and nude lip with a red dress is toooooo much. Also, you have bangs and from what it seems deep set/hooded eyes. A smokey eye will make them look smaller with so much bang cover. And remember the golden rule for regular women going to a party and not rocking avant-garde runway coture- No silver shadow with a red lip, no smokey eye with a red lip- it’s either one or the other. 

I’m a former MUA, if that helps.

BrideAddict92:  I always vote for red lips. It’s like a signature thing of mine. However I would consider whether or not you’re going to be eating. If you are, red lips can take some maintenance. Especially if you’re going for glossy red lips instead of a matte finish. My matte finish go to red lipstick (MAC’s ruby woo with a touch of Sin over it) is great for nights where I’ll be eating and drinking a lot because it holds up and takes very little maintenance. Gloss tends to be a bit more messy and fades a lot quicker in my experience.

stardustintheeyes:  Totally agree. My go-to matte reds are Nars Vesuvio, Nars Heat Wave. For something with more satin, go with Urban Decay 69. I typically avoid glossy reds unless you have a mirror on you at all times and you aren’t eating or drinking.
