Block it! Colour makeup for Autumn 2017

 

Take cue from the runway and apply some colour block action to your makeup! Bold colours and contrasting hues will give you that fashion-forward look you need. beautypress gives you the inspiration to get your face colour-ready.

 

Eyes on YOU

Liner
Want something striking? Neon is the one! Using bright eyeliners are the best with to play with the trend without going all out – the key to pulling it off is keeping the rest of your face as neutral as possible.

Use a colour which is contrasting to your eye colour – orange and pink with blue eyes, green or purple with brown eyes and yellow for green eyes.

 

Throw some shade
Multi-coloured shadow is having a moment – mermaid inspired makeup is one way to turn heads! Apply varying degrees of purples, greens and blues to really stand out from the crowd – if you’re feeling daring, combine it with a glossy pink lip.

Warm two toned shadow works for those of us who want something less complicated – simply blend in a terracotta shadow on the eyelids and line your bottom lash line with a striking pink. Et voila!

Solid shadow comes as a quick fix for those who have little time – just sweep on a vibrant eye shadow (glitter is a girl’s best friend!) and colour block it with your outfit instead. Purples and electric blues compliment every eye colour! Exaggerate the look with a pair of false eyelashes to really frame the eyes.

Get lippy

Top to bottom colour
A punchy lip is a sure way to make a statement, and what better way than to rock an ombré lip? Just line the outer part of the top lip with a bold red, working towards the middle downgrading the colour to a flashy orange. For the bottom part of the lip work from the same orange to a very clear nude.

Another way is to work a fuchsia top lip and a glittery silver/pink bottom lip for a really daring look. Remember to keep the rest of the look simple to really make it the talking point.

Two toned lips
The most straightforward approach to a colour block lip is to combine contrasting lip colours – paint the top lip with a one colour and the bottom with something a little different. Possible combinations would be Red vs Pink, Orange vs Nude, Violet vs Black – just mix it up and see!

 

Nails
Contrasting nails are a great way to compliment the colour block look. Paint your nails the opposite of your eye shadow or lip look of choice to really make a statement. Turquoise and gold makeup pairs perfectly with pink
