Believe it! You really can simplify your routine by using only one colour product. And to prove it, we created four stunning looks doing just that.
When it comes to colouring the eyes, cheeks and lips, a lip pencil is more versatile than an eye pencil. For this look, use Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil in Wired, $32, a peachy pink shade, to draw a rounded wing tip, then lightly shade the cheeks, and tint the lips.

Create the ultimate smokey eye in maroon using LANEIGE Two-Tone Matte Lip Bar in No. 1 Burgundy Mood, $36. This two-tone lip bar has a dark and light shade which makes for a great gradational eye and lip look.
For easy smudging and blending, choose a liquid-to-cream texture like Sephora Collection Cream Lip Stain in 17 Dark Red, $19. To create a stain effect on the lips and cheeks, apply and blend out with your fingers quickly. For the eyes, pick up the colour using a Q-tip then add dots on the outer corners of the eye.
Use a Q-tip for a more precise application.
Start dotting from the outer corner of both upper and lower eyelids and connect them together into a wing-tip.
Dab colour on the cheeks and quickly blend into a blush.
Apply onto the inner lips and blend out with your finger for a soft stain finish.
A bronzing stick like Revlon Insta-Blush in Nude Kiss, $25.90, can bring out your features in a very natural way. Use the stick to sculpt and contour the face, create a soft shadow on the eyelids and add a hint of lip colour.
Draw a line across the cheek.
Use fingers to blend all over the cheek bone evenly.
Apply and shade over the eyelid using an eyeshadow brush.
Brush colour onto the lips.
