Wearing a dark lip can be quite time consuming. You have to sculpt your lips to perfection (unless you're going for a gradient) and conceal all the mistakes. Chances are you wouldn't even notice that you've already spent 10 minutes on your lips alone. To make your routine a little bit faster, minimalism is key. Here's an example by Victoria's Secret legend Adriana Lima:
No complicated eye makeup, no falsies. Makeup artist Patrick Ta kept this look sleek and simple, relying on highlighter and sculpted brows to balance the model's features.
You can do the same thing by keeping your eyelids free of eyeshadow, then blending highlighter on the inner corners of your eyes to make them pop instead. Make your brows either extra bushy or perfectly arched, too, and don't leave out a good contouring sesh on the cheekbones and jawline. All these steps will define your features to match your vampy lip, so you'll always be ready for a close-up.
