What lipcolour would you pair with this eye look? ++

Hey MUA! I did a strong purple eye today and though I'd try it with a vampy purple lip. But it looked wrong to me, so I tried a nude. Which also looked wrong. I ended up giving up and going with a brown, but I'd like to know what MUA thinks. Should I have gone bright red? Cool pink? Something completely different? What lip would you pair with a bright purple eye? Thanks in advance :)
