5 Colorful Ways to Electrify Your Makeup Routine
February 08, 2022
From bold blushing cheeks to daring graphic eyeliner, we can’t seem to get enough of colorful makeup these days. Neutrals are always cool and classic, but if you feel like branching out of your makeup comfort zone, there’s endless inspiration on Instagram and plenty of budget-friendly products to help replicate your favorite looks. Keep reading for five colorful looks we love and the products you need to recreate them.
Bold Green Lids Green is one of our favorite colors this season, and it’s a surprisingly wearable way to start experimenting with colorful makeup. For a similar look to @tashjanecollins, coat your lids in Prickly, a mint green shade from the Urban Decay Wild Greens Palette, then add depth to the crease with Stash, an earthy green color.
2021 was the year of blush, and we don’t see the trend dying out anytime soon this year. For the ultimate rosy flush, try dabbing a bright red lipstick on your cheeks, then blending it out with your fingers. We recommend using a cream or satin formula, like the L'Oréal Paris Color Riche Reds of Worth Satin Lipstick.
Vibrant Graphic Liner
If you’re known for rocking your signature black cat eye, try switching things up with a new hue. @beccalynz_mua used the NYX Professional Makeup Epic Wear Liner Sticks in Graphic Purple and Pure White to achieve her vivid graphic liner look.
Shimmery Pink Lids
For a wash of sunset-inspired color, pat a shimmery pink eyeshadow all over your lid and blend it out with a pale tangerine shade in the crease. Next, add a pop of yellow to highlight your inner corners. We recommend reaching for the NYX Professional Makeup Metal Play Pigment Palette.
Upside-Down Cat Eye
Elongate your eyes with an exaggerated, upside-down cat eye. For the most vibrant effect, try using a water-activated liner, such as the Suva Beauty UV Hydra FX in Acid Trip.
