#19 cathy (Homepage) on 2012-04-17 12:14
I like to go more classic for the eyes and play up the lips when I do makeup because theres something enticing about the perfect pout. You can draw someone in with your eyes but I think the lips are more tempting. Its all exciting to me though, makeup is so much fun.

I used to always play up my eyes trying to make them look bigger since my lips are very full and I didn't want to put more attention to them but now I love a bold lip! I think it can be great for day or night too :-)

I have small eyes and big lips, so my lips are already noticed. I would def play up and do my eyes because I've always wanted that bold eye look and try different colors, step out of my comfort!
#58 Jessica Garcia on 2012-04-17 16:51
Both. But if I had to choose then definitely eyes. I feel like you can do more things with them and have more choices.
#59 Danielle on 2012-04-17 17:19
The eyes have it in my book!! ;o) Thanks for the chance!
#60 Rebecca Savage on 2012-04-17 17:54
Definitely my eyes - lots of color choices! I usually stick to the same shade on my lips, if anything at all. I snack too much throughout the day that I would have to reapply lipstick too often!
#61 Tina on 2012-04-17 18:21
My eyes! I feel I can do so much more with them. I tend to do a light lip when I go heavy on the eyeshadow.

Eyes! I love using browns and golds, sometimes blacks and grays. Then add a cat eye with some liquid eyeliner, and top is off with Urban Decays setting spray! Occasionally I do both though and add some pink Nicki Minaj Viva Glam lipstick with it. But usually just eyes!:-)

#101 amber on 2012-04-19 03:57
In the famous words of Tyra Banks..Smile with your eyes...Defintely play up your eyes! Nothing like good old fashion eye contact especially if you bless your eyelids with a poppin color!

#103 Alexa on 2012-04-19 12:02
Definitely eyes... My eye color changes between green and blue depending on what I wear and I'm always trying to keep them more blue. It's always important to keep eye contact when chatting with people so what better way to flaunt your best asset and tell a good story than with a pretty set of eyes?!

Whether I play up my eyes or my lips definitely depends on my mood for that particular day. Recently though I have found myself becoming lazy with my eye makeup and just dong some winged liner and a bright pink or orangey coral lip! I think thats my favorite even though my husband hates when I wear lipstick because he always says that he doesnt want it on his lips even though that rarely happens. lol
