A Pop of Color Won’t Hurt

I’ve always been a neutral color kind of girl.  I love subtle tones like earthy browns and warm golds.  But having said that, there are ways of incorporating color into your everyday makeup that will make your look a bit more interesting and playful.  The key is to use it as an accent!

The most common way of course is using a brightly pigmented lipstick with a very minimal eye look.

Colored liners are super fun too. If you are on the conservative side, you could wear darker shades.

Dark blue liner is a fun substitute for black or brown.

Line your lower waterline with a dark green, turquoise, purple, or whatever color suites your fancy.

Colored mascara is often overlooked but it’ll make people do a double take!

Blue mascara is dark enough to use instead of black.  It will definitely make the eye look more interesting without being too outlandish.

And lastly, you can keep your eye and lip nude and go for a healthy flushed look by using extra bright blush tones.

Don't be afraid of very strong blushers.  The key is to use a brush with long soft bristles, and blend the product in very well.

Keep the eye and lip subtle while concentrating the color on your cheeks.
