If ever there was a moment when you doubted whether or not berry lips were suitable for all skin tones, Paula Patton just laid all doubts to rest. ‘The Perfect Match’ actress sported a bright-eyed beauty look with bold, matte burgundy lips at the movie premier this week and we’re obsessed. So obsessed, in fact, that we’ve broken down the look for your to try so you too can get this good eye + lip combo.
Using a brush or your fingers (or both!) even out your complexion and tend to areas of discoloration using Black Up Cosmetics Concealer Palette. Use warmer tones within the palette to create a natural contour along nose, cheeks and jaw line.

The makeup artist-approved trick to making your eyes look wider and brighter, is lining your lower water line with a nude liner. We love this shimmery option to make the look a little more luxe. For the ultimate bright-eye look, we love this champagne-hued liner from Too Cool for School.

Coat your lashes with two coats of lengthening and volumizing mascara, making sure to let the coats dry in between applications. For mega lashes we love this dual mascara from the Estée Edit.

The pièce de résistance of this beauty look is the berry lip. For a berry lip that’s über pigmented and lasts all day, try Tarte’s new lip paint.
