Neutrals with a pop of colour
I’m not crazy enough to think that people love bright makeup as much as I do. And it’s true that sometimes, all you need is a pop of colour instead of an intensely bright eye. After all, hot pink eyeshadow isn’t always work place friendly.
So I wanted to share with you a few different ways that I like to incorporate something bright or bold into my soft and neutral looks.
1. Keep your eyeshadow and lips soft and opt for a bright contrasting eye liner.
2. Create either a soft or smokey eye using neutral colours like browns or greys and add a bold lip in a vibrant shade such as red, pink or even orange.
3. Pair neutral shades of eyeshadow with a brighter colour like seen below in this unlikely combination of brown, peach and green. The browns keep it soft, while the green and peach add a little bit of fun.
So, when you are planning to pair those brown eyeshadows with that nude lipstick and muted blush, have a little bit of fun instead and add a pop of colour!
And tell me, how do you add colour to your everyday?
