There are certain beauty rules one should never question: 1. Wash your face before bed. 2. Wear SPF daily, even when it rains. 3. Do not over-tweeze your eyebrows — ever. Then there are those rules that were made to be broken. From VIOLET GREY’s cover shoot with actress Emily Blunt comes a lip and eye combination that, while not for the faint of heart, is perfectly suited for standing out during the upcoming holiday-party season. Makeup artist Jenn Streicher paired a glossy, bordeaux lip and an imperfect, gilded eye to create a look that is surprisingly wearable and utterly sophisticated. The products necessary to master it at home, below.
Always start on the eyes before foundation or concealer.

Select the Tom Ford foundation stick in a color one shade lighter than your complexion, which gives a highlighted effect to the face.
