Color in makeup is the absolute most fun but also seems to be the scariest for people to try and use in their go-to makeup looks. I’m continuing my 5 Makeup Looks to Master with the Big and Bold edition on color! A fun bold color lets you have fun with makeup (as it should be fun!) and having a go-to makeup look using color gives you that assurance that it looks good and you can actually wear it in your daily life.
One really easy way to work a bold color into your look is with eyeliner. Swapping out your basic black or brown with a bright aqua blue like this Avon Ultra Luxury Eyeliner in Sky Blue is super easy. (I told you I was picking up a few more of these Ultra Luxury!) If sky blue intimidates you, then try a navy blue, hunter green or dark purple. These wear like a black but give a colorful twist so color newbies will still feel comfortable wearing them out.
Avon Ultra Luxury Eyeliner in Sky BlueLet the liner be the statement with a simple champaign shadow as your base, clean face makeup and a nude lip.
I also love a colorful eye look using eyeshadow! These pictures might not share the full in real life color of my makeup but I used my smokey eye technique and worked in color. This time I used the Tarte High Tides and Good Vibes Eyeshadow Palette to create a big and bold teal eye look. Use the same techniques as you use with your neutrals only swap in a color. Same look and feel just tweaked for more fun! (You could try the Avon True Color Matte Eyeshadow Quad in Tranquility to get a similar look for less)
When doing a bold eyeshadow look I tend to do a light shade all over the lid (Burried Gold) with a matte neutral shade in the transition area (South Beach) and a dark shade in the outer v (Dive In) with a pop of color to transition the dark shade on the outer into the light shade on the inner (Surf’s Up). End result is a wearable colorful eye look using shadow!
These are two go-to ways I work color into my makeup looks but even if you’re shy to wear a colorful eye I know you can work in a colorful lipstick! I think everyone should have a red lip they like to wear as a red lip always looks big and bold while still being classic. Plus! It works for all your holidays… maybe not Easter, but def Christmas, New Years, Thanksgiving, 4th of July, Memorial Day, Labor Day… you name it! If you think you can’t wear a red lip, hit me up and I’ll find you the perfect red for you. Right now for summer I’m loving the Avon True Color Perfectly Matte in Coral Fever – see my Lip of the Day post on here.
