While the mantra may not hold true for chocolate desserts and shoe collections, sometimes less is more - especially when it comes to brightly colored cosmetics. Just ask Emma Stone, who recently stepped out on the red carpet for the Los Angeles premiere of her new film Easy A wearing some stunning-yet-subtle eye makeup.
According to InStyle.com, the auburn-haired actress wore a simple chocolate brown liner along her top lash line to add definition to the eye, and then added a touch of color by rimming the bottom lash line with a teal-colored formula.
"For Emma Stone's look, I was inspired by the jewel tones in her dress," makeup artist Rachel Goodwin told the news source. "My goal was for her makeup to feel as playful and fashion forward as her dress."
Women who want to add a similar, unexpected burst of color to their peepers can do so by coating their lashes with blue, purple and green waterproof mascara. Select the hue that will best complement your eye color or best matches your ensemble, and prepare to turn heads all night long.
