When it comes to spring beauty trends, colorful pops are where it’s at. Bright and bold technicolor looks are not just for runways. To make the flashy palette wearable everyday, all it takes is a little practice these helpful hints.
Pick your position wisely
Go bold on either lips or eyes—but never on both. Also stop to consider just how intense you are willing to go, and opt for formulations that run either sheer for minimal impact, or matte and opaque for maximum impact.
Know your skin tone
Once you know whether you have cool (blue) or warm (yellow) undertones, go with similar color tones, as they will be the most flattering. For example, cool girls can go with a pop of blue on the lids, or emerald liner. For the warmer girls, a swipe of yellow on the eyes or orange on the lips can be a fun choice.
Apply like a makeup artist
If you do choose to go with bold lips, simply fill your lips in with your colored lipstick, gloss, or tint of choice, and go easy with the rest of your makeup. If eyes are your weapons of mass seduction, first prep your eyes with your favorite eye primer of choice. Then, apply bright eyeshadow in the center of your lid, or bright liner close to the lashline. Voila, instant pop!
