Battling the Beauty Blahs with Bright Makeup

Early winter can often leave you feeling blah. The holidays are over, but there are months left of cold, dreary weather — and no festivities in sight! Luckily, makeup exists. Your favorite eyeliners, lipsticks and blushes aren’t just beauty-enhancing tools; they can also be big-time mood boosters. Check out these three tips for adding color to your outside, which will make your insides pop!

Battling Beauty Blahs

1. Rock the Red Lipstick

Boost your morale, as well as your confidence, by sporting a bright red lip. Use a lipstick that’s formulated to pop, like Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids in On Fire Red. Make sure to blot well — a vibrant pout can make you feel sexy and self-assured, but not if the color comes off on your teeth!

2. Wear Electric Blue Eyeliner

Put a bounce in your step with a bold, blue cat eye! Use Urban Decay 24/7 Waterproof Liquid Liner in Radium to line your upper lashes, starting with a thin line at the inner corner that becomes thicker as you move out. When you reach the end of your eyelid, create a 45-degree angle toward the tip of your brow, then draw your wing.

3. Bust Out the Blush

Warm up those chilly cheeks — and your mood — with a bright blush. We love Maybelline Face Studio Master Glaze in Pink Fever. It’s super sheer, adding color without making you look clownish. The creamy formula blends well and gives your skin a healthy, (and happy!) dewy glow. Try this blush on your lips or lids for instant, mood-boosting color anytime.
