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
