A pop of color is one of my favorite trends for the spring and summer seasons. Adding new hues to your wardrobe can elevate your style instantly, and the same goes for your makeup routine. As a professional makeup artist, a lot of clients ask me how to incorporate bold color into their look while maintaining a polished face. Here are a few professional tips.The most important thing to remember is to stay focused. Pick a specific area you want to enhance and go for it! Whether it's the lids, the lashes, or the lips there are plenty of products and shades to play with. Enhancing one area on the face with bolder tones, instead of everything at once, is the key to looking on-trend instead of over-done.
