Women are often advised to avoid a variety of color combinations, such as black and brown, and pink and red. When it comes to makeup, however, it seems that gals may want to ignore the warning that gold and silver do not mix, as one Hollywood A-lister recently paired the two hues and looked fantastic.
While she often looks stunning, blonde beauty Reese Witherspoon dazzled at the Avon Foundation for Women Gala in New York City. The petite actress played up her eyes using contrasting colors - silvery-gray on her lids and bronze beneath her lower lash line. She finished the look with a few coats of black mascara.
Surprisingly, the two tones didn't compete with each other, as one might expect. Instead, the shades played off one another and brought out different colors in Witherspoon's eyes, creating one truly dynamic look.
When wearing complex eye makeup, it's important to make sure that you define your peepers with mascara. Long, dark lashes will help to subtly enhance your eyes, adding drama without taking away from the overall look.
