Don’t get us wrong, we totes love our lipsticks, lip glosses, tinted lip balms, lip stains, liquid lippies and the whole gamut of lip colours. But we totally understand that sometimes, you just want to skip lippie. I mean, if your look is centered solely on lip colour and little else in terms of eyeliner, eyeshadow, mascara and blusher, like a French girl-inspired bright red lip for example, it does take quite a lot of touching up to maintain the look throughout the day.

Or perhaps you will be attending an event that requires a lot of eating and drinking and air-kissing and you don’t want to fuss with lipstick?

Then, these 6 eye-focused makeup looks will totally do the trick for you. Just focus on those peepers and leave lips bare, or with a slick of moisturising lip balm and you’re all set.
