Bold unashamed swatches of colour on almost bare skin
A makeup trend representing the young fresh wave of beauty
From colourfully winged eyeliner to heavily pigmented lids its Makeup for the sake of Fun, Fashion and Femininity- all with a capital F.
As someone who is a recovering colour-phobe, I tend to stick with the warmer tones for colour-blocked make-up. Like yellows, oranges, sandy beige that look phenomenal on pretty much every skin tone.
But don’t let that stop you from playing around with the cool brights like green under-eye liner, or even heavy purple eyelids.
Tip: For lazy makeup wearers like us, who still want to make a statement, just add a line of yellow on your lids or a bright pink strobe of pink below your brows
So dive into your makeup palettes this summer for the freshest way to incorporate colour into beauty.
This make-up look isn’t about hiding flaws, filtering or creating an illusion of something else- and I am here for it.
