The basic rule is that if your outfit of the day is colorful or outstanding in some way or other, eye makeup should be kept to be a minimum – at least with the colors used – so that the different elements do not contest against one another.
That’s what I normally adhere to, but you see,
“In all matters of creativity, rules are meant to be broken when necessary.” – Haley Langford
So for the first day of 2012, I wore a new, colorful, asymetrical dress and matched it with statement-making eye makeup.
