#ShowUpBold This School Year With These Head-Turning Makeup Looks From TikTokAugust 25, 2021
After wearing minimal makeup over the past year and a half while social distancing at home, we’re so ready to experiment with bold makeup like graphic liners, bright pigments and juicy lips. If you are too but are unsure of where to start, these TikTok influencers can help. They were challenged to create bold back-to-school makeup looks in partnership with L’Oréal using products that you can find at Ulta. So whether you’re returning to school or just want to try out a new look, check out our five favorite makeup looks from the #ShowUpBold challenge below, and be sure to search the hashtag on TikTok for more eye-catching face beats.
Take your look to the next level by matching your eyeliner and your hair accessories like @rebeccaxko did. To achieve this look, she used the IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer, the L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24HR Fresh Wear Foundation, the NYX Professional Makeup Epic Wear Liner Stick in Emerald and the Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeshadow in Freak.
Instead of blending out her royal blue eyeshadow, @monaswain created her own bold trend by keeping her eyeshadow lines sharp and exaggerated and we’re loving it. Try it for yourself by using the Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeshadow in Charged, the Lancôme Cils Booster XL Vitamin-Infused Lash Thickening Mascara Primer and the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Mascara in Deep Green.
@mualesandro proves that mixing shimmery eyeshadow with bright eyeliners is a great idea. The key is to pair a neutral shimmer with lighter pastel colors. For an extra touch, he painted his nails a gorgeous pink shade. Use the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion and 24/7 Eyeshadow in Bad Seed, the NYX Professional Makeup Epic Wear Liner Stick in Chill Blue, the Lancôme Juicy Tubes in Spring Fling and the Essie Expressie in Crave the Chaos to recreate his look.
’70s Cut Crease
Update a classic ’70s cut crease by using bold colors. Here, @helenheavenn opted to use green and blue shades that are super fun for back to school. Don’t forget lip gloss to complete this ultra-trendy look. Recreate her full beat by using the IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer, the Maybelline New York Cheek Heat Blush, the Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeshadow in Freak, the NYX Professional Makeup Epic Wear Liner Stick in Blue Trip and Emerald Cut NYX and the Lancôme Juicy Tubes in Miracle.
