There are so many rules to being a woman. How you should dress, who you should speak to, how much you should speak to them, how high your hemline should be, how low your neckline should be.

You can’t wear bold eyes and bold lips

This is just plain silly. Being bold is a way of life. So if you want to do smokey eyes and a bold, red lip, you go right ahead. They say you should highlight only one feature but we think a strong eye makeup look with intense lips could come together quite seamlessly as well.

Open Up Your Eyes With White Eyeliner

If you read enough about making your eyes look bigger on the internet, you know most of the articles recommend applying white eyeliner to open up your eyes. But a white eyeliner might be too stark for brown or black eyed women. We suggest going for a brown or a nude liner. It has the same effect.
