Most makeup rules are made to be broken, especially the one that argues you have to choose between vibrant eye makeup or bold lipstick, never both. But if you’ve been paying attention to the happenings of Hollywood, you already know that this beauty don’t is now a major beauty do. Case in point: Red lipstick and blue eyeliner is everywhere.

While it sounds like a prom moment gone wrong, the striking features paired together create one harmonic look.

"Even though blue and red are opposite from one and another, they're complimentary colors, and that's why they work so well together," says celebrity makeup artist Min Min Ma.

However, the pro still says you could make one a bit more eye-popping than the other. "If you want to create a cat eye liner—my favorite liquid blue eyeliner is Lancôme Grandiose Liner in #3, Matte Saphi ($32; nordstrom.com)—go soft on the lips with something like Charlotte Tilbury Lip Lustre in Candy Darling ($22; nordstrom.com)."

If you’re more of a lipstick girl, she suggests picking a matte lipstick like Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick in Icon ($28; nordstrom.com) and going for subtle eyeliner in the water line with khôl pencil such as YSL Beauté Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil in Blue ($38; nordstrom.com).
