If i have a "done" smokey eye, i use a pale lipstick..

For the subdued eye, i use a darker "dramatic" l/s with some gloss.

As for color, that again, depends on the eye and the clothing colors..

Typically people tend to wear a stronger lip for a night time look, unless they're going for a specific look. Getting a stronger lip colour is usually easier with lipstick and you can apply a gloss over the top, however you can now get highly pigmented glosses (like Chanel glossimers, NARS lipglosses, and some of the deeper Stila lipglazes) which you can wear on their own for evening.

What stronger shades of lipsticks are great?

please dont be swayed by the "rules" of if you do a dark eye you have to do a light lip, you can pick any combo you want

what kinda colours are you looking for and for what occasions will you be wearing it? x

Mostly I want a look for a night at the club or something like that!
I usually wear light colors on my eyes and on my lips so I want something to make the difference!!And because I have small eyes I don't do a heavy eye make up!! I prefer light glittery eyes and I want more color on my lips,that's why I'm considering to start using lipstick for a night look!!Until now I always wear lipglosses,day and night and now I want to try something different!!

For a smokey eye, I love MAC's C-Thru lipglass because my lips are pretty pink and I loooove how this makes my lips look very nude. If I'm doing kind of a neutral eye, I love MAC's Palatial lustreglass, it's a bright pink and very sexy. Thanks Charmaine!!Lustreglasses are like Lipglasses??Because I don't like lipglasses!!!They are way too sticky!!

I think you might also like the Lip Polishes, as they are like liquid lipstick in lipgloss formm, some faves are glaze, shimmer, sheen, sparkle

Lip Polishes are something I want to try in the future!!

Club = (colored) gloss to me. Mac lip glasses or Venom Gloss by DuWop would be my personal recommendations. From what I hear DuWop will send you samples if you go to their site and email them.

i'm definitely a lip gloss person more than a lipstick person. lippies seem like more of a hastle to keep on/apply.

I usually do smokey eyes and pale lips at night and go for a pale gloss. I find it really hard to break away from gloss at night and go for a pale lipstick instead cos I LOVE the shine. I am thinking of venturing out and using a shimmery but not shiny/glossy lipstick, though, just to try out a truly low key lip look and see if I like it.

I did do subtlely smokey taupe eyes with berry lip gloss too and I loved that. I still have some true red gloss to try out but I'm scared. Lol! I would do bronzey/goldy eyes with that. I just CANNOT in a million years do nude eyes at night, though, whether I do dark lips or not (which is hardly ever anyway). I feel like I forgot to put my make-up on.
