How much is too much?

I love, love, love this look from the new Mac collection. If I had my way, I would wear a golden snood on my head every day, in addition to committing the ultimate sin of accentuating both my lips AND eyes. But is it too much?
Hell no!

The great makeup artist Kevyn Aucoin once said: "I believe there are no rules when it comes to makeup. New and exciting ideas are most often created when chances are taken". I propose that we all take this to heart with our makeup looks this summer and beyond. There is no reason why I can't wear a 60's Nancy Sinatra cat eye every day in the middle of June, is there? Hell, no!
