10 Easy and Colorful Eye Makeup Looks To Push You Out of Your Comfort Zone

It’s time to have some fun and shake up your makeup look and routine with these easy and colourful makeup looks! Colourful eye makeup isn’t all that complicated, getting it right is all about the colour scheme that you’ve chosen.

As a nude lover, it’s hard for me to get out of that zone. Bold, colourful shadows are really a challenge to take on.

So if you’re one who loves a fun and bold challenge, I’ve gathered some unexpectedly doable colourful eye makeup to coerce you into occasional getaways from your neutrals.

1. Multi-colored Eyes

This colorful eye makeup is bold, fun and has endless creative options. Choose three colours to mix and match, use one colour on your eyelid, one on your lower lash line, and one in the form of eyeliner on your waterline!

By using the 3 primary colors, you get secondary colors thrown in too. I can detect a bit of orange and purple colors from the pink, yellow and blue!

To top up the look a notch, lightly feather some colorful eyeshadow on your inner eyebrows, and bring it slightly down. The finished look epitomises sophistication and fun and is perfect for spring or summer!

2. Smokey Orange

Vibrant green and orange look so mesmerizing together and create a stunning smokey eye look. The pumpkin colours are giving me strong fall vibes but this could also be a hot weather look.

Subtle accents on the eyelashes are one way to stand out without going all out. Opt for false lashes or colored mascara to get the look!

3. Neon Graphic Liner


Three words for this eye makeup look: It’s a statement! Yellow eyeshadow is already inviting and “colourful”. It’s a bold hue that can’t be missed. Instead of applying normal eyeshadow and liner, go for a bold graphic liner look to steal the show!

4. Gradient Colored Makeup

I love this dramatic out-of-the-box contrasting look with the lips, eyes and brows all matching! You can replace the black with any colour of your choice, and voila, it’s fit for any seasonal mood.

The fun thing about this look is that it doesn’t require much work on the eyelids. The main focus is the beautiful dual scheme.

5. Bold Colorful Mascara Liner Duo

This is what I’d imagine fairies’ eyes would look like, that’s if they actually existed outside of my 4-year-old dreams!

A splash of neon pink against white or silver is different and original. I love how simple this eye makeup is to achieve. It’s just eyeliner and mascara! No fancy eyeshadow blends and techniques are needed here.

With just two colours to make for a colourful look, it couldn’t be easier! Think of all the other colours you can use to get this fabulous look!

6. Golden Colored Crease Line

The peachy-orange tones here look absolutely mesmerizing. That touch of gold on the crease and waterline says something like “Look at me”! Finish the look by toning in the rest of your makeup and hair color to your eyeshadow look!

7. Unicorn Pastel Colors

If you’re not quite ready for the rainbow eyeshadow trend, then why not try out a unicorn-inspired pastel eyeshadow look first? It doesn’t need to be complicated. It can be just three colours and it looks dazzling!

Apply your shadows in all three major makeup areas of your eyes: the inner corner, middle, and outer corner. Blend blend blend. Finish up with subtle highlights to get a full unicorn dazzling effect!

8. Accent Gold Liner

I love this eyeshadow look, it’s got the red drama, yet it still has the subtle factor. The way to get this look is to apply a red base followed by thick-winged red eyeliner in a shade or two darker than the base. Then outline the eyeliner with a gold glitter eyeshadow or eyeliner shade.

It’s a bold colorful eyeshadow look, that at the same time is safe and not too out there! This look is perfect for the winter or holiday season where we just can’t get enough of red and gold!

9. Gradient Colored Eyeliner

Brighten up your summer with a gradient eyeliner look! It’s the perfect solution for someone who wants colour but not too much of it! Why go for black when a look like this is the easiest way to say you’re fun and colourful?! It’s a wonderful compromise.

10. Patrick Star Inspired Eyeshadow Look

Patrick Star is an adorable childhood figure for many (including me). And something about pink and green invites you to just stare, it’s the effect of the complementary colours!

The pink shade is pretty but the originality comes from that wonderful green eyeliner that wraps itself around the eye!

My Thoughts

These colorful makeup looks are so simple to create, yet so effective to look at! You get the best of both! So step out of your comfort zone and have some fun!
