1. Timeless Beauty

Bring it back to the classics. This pop of colour can be copied by simply applying beautiful red lipstick on your lips.

Swipe a brow gel on your eyebrows, apply fluttery lashes and you’re good to go. Simple, yet beautiful!

2. Beautiful Coloured Liners

Switch out your normal black or brown eyeliner for an original colour that you love.

Coloured eyeliner is a great starting point when it comes to experimenting with colour. With just an easy, simple stroke on your eyelid, you’ll get a creative spin on your look that’s not too out there!

There are tons of coloured eyeliners available on the market with a wide array of colours to choose from. 

3. Monotone Realness 

This warm orange from the eyes to the lips is simply beautiful. The monotone look will also be huge this year! It is striking and simple.

But of course, don’t just limit yourself to just orange shades, you can try rosy pinks, browns or even blues, the sky’s the limit when it comes to the looks you can create!

4. Coloured Mascara

The coloured mascara is another easy trick that is easy to do, yet looks so effective! You can start with darker colours like navy blue and then slowly get more daring! This will amp up your look even if the rest of your makeup is simple. 

Maybelline has top-notch mascaras and their Maybelline New York Volum’ Express The Colossal Big Shot Mascara X Shayla does not disappoint. If you don’t want the blue shade, there is Poppin’ Purple too!

5. Rosy Fresh 

This look is one of my favourites! Similar to a monochromatic look, using rosy and pink tones will help you look radiant and fresh.

It’s a minimal and easy look to achieve, and it adds just the right amount of color, especially after a rough night!

6. Blue Inner Highlight

Many of you are probably familiar with the popular makeup trick to apply highlighter on the inner eyes. But it’s time to switch it up a bit!

Adding a pop of colourful highlighter onto your inner corner will spice up your makeup look and will surely cause heads to turn! You can opt for any colour of the rainbow!

7. Splash of Colour on The Lid

This pastel blue just fills my soul!  If you love your pastels, you will undoubtedly enjoy this look. It’s effortless to apply, with only 1 swipe you add so much to your appearance.

8. Bold Blushes 

Gather up your blushes because it’s their time to shine. Don’t be afraid to pile your blush on your cheeks and apply it upwards. This is another brightening look for every day, your blush will surely be a show-stopper! 

The Lip & Cheek Tint also colour adapts to the pH value of your skin to create the perfect shade for you and your skin, meaning you’ll never look wrong!

9. Purple Rain 

Ready for something more striking and daring? Try this purple eye look all around the eyes! This makeup look will accentuate your eyes and put all the attention on them.

If you happen to have hazel-coloured eyes, the purple will make them stand out beautifully. As usual, experiment with different colours and make sure to have fun! 

The Makeup Revolution X Friends Open The Door Eyeshadow Palette is a great addition to your makeup collection, especially when playing around with colours.

My Thoughts

Although I love my neutrals, I think it’s time to step out of the box and add a little pop of colour to my makeup routine!

There’s something here for everyone, from the less daring to those who are really looking for that fun factor. These makeup looks are uncomplicated, yet will add so much and elevate your everyday look!
