Eyes or Lips?

Ok, I'm having a makeup dilemma and I need your help. I'm going to the IFTA's this Saturday as a guest of MAC and I'm wearing a full length, midnight blue dress with a round neck and long sleeves (very clingy - been drinking dandelion tea all week to help reduce any bloat!) But for some reason I'm drawing a blank on my makeup.... I'm a bit over the smoky eye right now. I could do a metallic blue or grey eye with a nude lip or I'm really drawn to the hot fuchsia lip and just decorating the eyes in pale champagne shades with some shimmer and black liner.
This Fuchsia Colorburst by Revlon is rocking my world now and it would look quite eye-catching I think. Help me lovely readers! Which do you think would look best, statement eyes or statement lips?

Gorgeous dress - you'll look stunning El! Have been tormented by the Davina2 in the same colour. I'm with the girls, I'm afraid - loving the fuchsia lip right now (MAC rebel is my current fave). Besides, if you're there with MAC then surely you need a bit of a bold statement colour? :)

Have fun... xxx

I highly recommend going with a statement lip - it looks so fresh and bright.

Also going for the classic liner, slightly contoured eye and pink lip. Hawt!

I must also vote for the fuschia lip. Make sure your skin is glowing (which I'm sure it will be!) and the bright lip will be so refereshing. The smoky eye is a bit overdone at this stage isn't it? Bet you'll be fab!

Wow! Fuchsia lips it must be... Interesting to see that everyone is picking up the same feeling that smoky eyes are a bit 'over'

I would go with the hot pink lip. Very in for spring and I think it would be a beautiful pop of colour with your navy dress.
Have fun. It sounds so exciting!

I've been trying out makeup looks all evening which has been good to do. I realised that I don't really change my own makeup enough these days, so I tried out some looks that I use on other people and am happy with my new results!
Buy the way, the winner of the lip shade dilemma is Cherry Lush by Tom Ford....a deeper fuchsia than the Revlon one, but divine!

Thank you all for your ideas
