The final stage of this evening make-up is to use the correct shade of lipstick. You can choose the tone that best matches your chosen look. Makeup artists usually advise green-eyed young ladies to wear red, terracotta or coral lipstick. It is they who are best suited in color to green-eyed beauties.
