Dark Red Lips with Taupe Shadow
Because of its dramatic effect, dark red lipstick can easily be worn with an otherwise color-free face (colorful eye makeup definitely doesn't work here), but it looks especially impactful with shading on the eyes using brown or taupe shadows to add depth. You can go really film noir with medium to dark brows, or just add balance using a soft, neutral taupe. Anything in the cool, neutral brown or beige family acts as a perfect complement to a rich, dark lip color.
