Pop of Colour

For a colour-phobe like me, florescent eyeshadows and glitter eyeliners are not my cup of tea BUT I've recently been adding a touch a colour in to my daily makeup and I have to say, I'm really enjoying it!

Here's two of my looks from this week:



BLUE EYESHADOW with pink lips:


Yes it's true, I used a bright blue eyeshadow from the Seventeen Midnight Jewel Heist Palette. I simply followed the line of my black eyeliner and created a second flick, to add a comfortable pop of colour. 
I went all out and chose an electric pink lip, using the Rimmel Colour Rush Balm, in the shade I Want Candy. 









I wore this look during the day and actually (and surprisingly) felt very comfortable doing so! To tone the look down, I used an iridescent light gold eyeshadow over my eyelids and didn't go too crazy with blusher or bronzer.




PURPLE EYELINER with nude lips:


I used Bourjois Clubbing Waterproof Eyeliner, in the shade Purple Night, in my waterline and smudged along my lower lash line. 
As this was a big step for me, I opted for a nude lip by Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in the shade Liar.

Bourjois Contour Clubbing Eyeliner Purple Night


As you can see, from afar this is actually rather subtle. I absolutely loved wearing this look and will definitely wear it more often. For those a little more adventurous, you can also use the eyeliner as a lipliner!


I feel really excited to continue trying new things, so let me know some of your recommendations!

Other Colourful Favourites:


If these looks are still a little too cray cray for you, simply adding colour to the cheeks or lips can really brighten up a look and spruce up a bog standard makeup routine.

A few other colourful products that I'm loving right now are:

Stila Blusher - All You Need Is Love 
MAC Lipstick - Viva Glam Miley Cyrus 
Urban Decay Lipstick - Anarchy 
Bourjoir Rouge Edition Velvet - Frambourjoise
