Colorful Makeup: 5 Tips for Beginners

 

Happy National Color Day! For creative minds, colors are the start of the artistic journey. Who can relate to that feeling you get when you open a brand-new eyeshadow palette? RAISE THOSE HANDS! Like opening a brand new Bright Addiction Palette and seeing all those bright, bold, amped-up colors in the pans, so many ideas and combinations just start forming in your head and you can’t wait to get in there and try every single shade.

Just scrolling down your Instagram feed you can always find amazing colorful makeup inspo that you are just taken away by and want to try on yourself. But doing it on yourself is JUST no the same! In the beginning, it might not always be as easy as we want it to be. But don’t get discouraged, here are 5 useful tips that are going to make you feel confident when it comes to incorporating color into your glam wardrobe.

 

 

Tip #1: Start with your comfort zone

Sometimes colors may seem intimidating. If you’re not sure what colors to incorporate in your makeup, lean towards the ones you already have in your wardrobe. Monochromatic looks are the best way to start when you are not comfortable with colorful makeup. For example, you can complement a pink blouse with a pink shadow all over your eyelid or if you are wearing a red dress, you can make your lips pop with a classic red lipstick.

Tip #2: Pack light

 

When we look at a colorful palette, we may want to achieve the same intensity of the eyeshadow pan straight onto our eyelids. However, it’s important to keep in mind that color payoff varies depending on your skin tone. The best way to get flattering results is by applying color with a light hand and building up to the intensity you feel comfortable with. As Drizzy once said, “started from the bottom now we here!”

 
 

Tip #3: It’s all in the eyes

 

Can’t achieve the eye look you saw on Instagram? Don’t stress! Start off by using only one eyeshadow color over the lids rather than incorporating multiple colors all at once. This method is great for beginners as it is an easy application and gives you that peak of color you yearn for. You can also use bright eyeliners for a pop of color, I totally recommend our Fixline Eyeliner Gel to get this job done. If you want to be more daring with colors, blend a colorful eyeshadow through your crease with a blending brush such as our Brush #21, to create a soft color shift.

Tip #4: Brighten up your lips

 

Did you know that we have over 72 Long Lasting Liquid Lipsticks? Lipsticks are a great way to experiment with color. Bright colorful lipsticks add a small pop of color to a natural look. If you’re not used to using color on the lips, a bright colored gloss is usually a little less intimidating. Our Spicy Lip Gloss is a beautiful bright shimmering red that pairs well with any glass skin/no makeup makeup look.

Tip #5: RELAX, it's just makeup!

 

If you don't like how it looks: Take It off! Makeup's not permanent, remember practice makes perfect and makeup remover will probably become your BFF at the beginning. You got this! Our After Makeup Cleansing Balm is amazing for clean up during makeup applications and for taking everything off to leave a fresh clean slate.
