Beauty doesn’t have to be boring. Get out of a makeup rut by following this recipe: mix colorful cosmetics with a few key neutrals and get a happy new look! From bold pink lips to striking purple eyeliner, summertime is the perfect time to play with colors. Being shy and subtle is so 2019.
NARS Satin Lipstick Pencil, Sephora – $27
Draw attention to your gorgeous pout by swiping on this NARS lipstick pencil in Yu – a Barbie-like bright pink. This vitamin-enriched lip color has a satin finish that stays vibrant and beautiful all day long. Keep your eyeshadow neutral and your makeup minimal to make your lips really pop.
Brightening your eyes is another option. For a simple blast of color, use one of Urban Decay’s colorful glide-on pencils, which come in more than 30 unique colors. Deep End is a turquoise blue; Viper is a metallic purple covered in shimmery purple; Woodstock is a sparkly hot pink and Freak is a neon glittery green. Simple line your eyes, or draw fun shapes on your lids, and you’re ready to go!
For a more intense look, use Anastasia Beverly Hill’s latest Norvina Pro Pigment Palette, featuring colors from all over the rainbow. From highlighter-yellow to bright fuchsia, you will have plenty of options. You can pair these with the muted neutrals and iridescent shimmery hues. Pair these with the colorful eyeliner for extra glam.
OPI Infinite Shine Long-Wear Nail Polish, Ulta – $13
Make your nails shine with this collection of luminous OPI nail polish. Exotic Birds Do Not Tweet is my favorite, as it is a bright, sunshine-yellow shade that will make you smile every time you look at your fingers. You also can’t go wrong with the peachy Got Myself into a Jam-balaya, the coral Aloha from OPI and the blue Suzi-san Climbs Fuji-san.
