Eight Lipstick Colors to Make Your Eyes Pop

When you want to accentuate your eyes, don't just stop at eyeshadow, eyeliner, and mascara. Lipstick colors can have huge impacts on your eyes—just select a lipstick complementary to your eye color. The right shade can make your eyes look brighter and more vivid in a flash.

Beautiful, deep brown eyes are particularly impacted by bright-colored lipsticks. Dramatic plums, reds, and hot pinks are striking choices. But if you're not a bold lip kind of girl, simply choose a cool-toned pink like BITE Beauty's Luminous Creme Lipstick in Granache to contrast with the warmth of your eyes.
