When using bright makeup on the face, be careful not to go overboard. Build your look one feature at a time and amp it up accordingly!
The first fun product to try is for your nails! This is a great way to go if you want to ease yourself into the bright trend. The new spring collection will be in stores and online soon, but until then Butter London has some great polishes! Try “Slapper” if you like blue, or go with “Snog” if you’re a pink girl (like me). If you want to go brighter-or crazier-paint your nails with “Cheeky Chops”, a bright yellow polish. Paint nails one color and paint toes another!
To try bright colors on your cheeks, try Smashbox Blush Rush. These bright blushes will wake up any skin tone. There are 8 other foolproof shades to choose from, all of which are long-wearing and super silky. The cute compact comes with a mirror so you can touch up your glow on the go! Build up your bright blush look so as to avoid that whole clown thing.
For a bright eye look, try Too Faced Exotic Color Intense Eye Shadow. There are 12 shades in all, half of which are neutral, and the other half of which are bright and bold. The shadows and intense and pigmented, and will pop with some black eyeliner. These shadows were designed to compliment Too Faced shadow palettes, but they are great on their own. Any of these shades go great with the Natural Eye Palette, which has shades that are perfect for day. You can have a pop of purple or a hint of blue, or go all out bold. If you want your shadow to have extra staying power, apply Too Faced Shadow Insurance before you put on your bright shadow. Colors will be brighter and last longer! And once again, if eyes are bright, go easy on the blush and lipstick.
Another great way to go bright on the eyes is with liner! Try Too Faced Perfect Eyes Waterproof eyeliner. This creamy liner glides on easily and will stay put for hours. The pencils are high-impact and will leave and bright pop wherever you want it. The pencil also comes with a smudging tool, so you can draw on a precise purple line, or rock a smoky blue eye. Liner is a quick and easy way to go bright!
For a bright lip, try the newest lipstick shades from the Smashbox Love Me collection. The two shades are “Love Me” and “Tempt Me”. “Love Me” is a bold, daring red lipstick. “Tempt Me” is a bright coral that is especially fun. This coral lipstick looks great with bright cheeks and a hint of color on the lids. The Smashbox lipstick formula is hydrating, too, so color won’t make lips crack and seem dull.
Bright is fun and easy! We’re excited for a colorful spring here at Planet Beauty!
