Colour pop

Bored of your every day makeup? Why not try something new?

I have always been fascinated by over the top makeup and used to experiment on myself, but recently I have got a bit boring with my everyday makeup. I decided to try out some of my bright eyeshadows to create some new summer looks for days and nights.

Bright eyes are an easy way to stand out from the crowd, so if you’re trying to blend in this maybe isn’t the best way.  Any colour goes whether it’s in the form of eyeshadow, eyeliner or glitter dust. For the best vibrant selection of colours try MAC or if you’re strapped cash and need a cheaper alternative try Barry M who boast a great collection. Shop around for the best shades and prices.

Before applying bright colours, use foundation as a base so it will be easier to get off after and use layers of mascara to finish of the looks.

Two tone eyes work well with any contrasting colours, here I have mixed pink and purple, framing my eyes with a lilac eyeshadow and using this as a base and then working over the edge of the eye with a bright pink.

Green eyes work well with lots of mascara, Barry M do a great selection of green eyeshadows, mix two shades for a blended look. The darker on the bottom helps open up the eyes.

Orange and yellow is something I would never usually be brave enough to try, the orange works well with the yellow by calming the colour down; the ultimate summery look.

Layer two blue colours to make the blue as bright as possible.

A metallic take on the smokey eyes. Smokey eyes have been around for a long time now, the key to the style is by blending. Mix lighter base colours with dark colours to create a flawless look. Here I’ve mixed white, grey, silver and black.

Two strokes of eyeliner give an alternative to a classic look. This look would work nicely with false eyelashes.
A brown and white mix together to create a mushroom colour, the neutral colour means it could accompany any outfit and would be a good everyday look.
I enjoyed playing around with the different colours and I love the fact that anything goes! My favourite is definitely the blend of yellow and orange!
Eyes are usually the first thing people look at, so believe it or not they are a great way to revamp an outfit. Why not try something different on your next night out and go a bit outrageous with a pop of colour!
