Before I finally found the perfect ombré duo lipstick I created different ombré looks using the many lipsticks I have in my collection. My favorite combination has to be this berry and red look because it’s extremely wearable in everyday life and you can make it as subtle or extreme as you’d like. I wanted the lip to really shine, but instead of pairing it with neutral eyes and cheeks, I kept in the pink family and created a shimmering pink hued look. 
Pale pink shimmer shadow is a great alternative to nude or taupe especially in the early Spring when I’m dying to change up my look. Pale shimmer eyeshadow may seem juvenile, but when worn correctly it can look great. Lesson of the day: don’t be hesitant to try shimmery eyeshadow, it catches the light drawing attention to your eyes and brightens up your enter look.
