COLOR…. COLORFUL EYESHADOW, COLORFUL EYELINER, MIX & MATCH!

GO AS COLORFUL AS YOU CAN! HOW TO MAKE IT WEARABLE?

1. ALL YOU NEED IS TO START WITH A WHITE BASE! WHITE UNDERNEATH WILL AMP UP AND BRIGHTEN ANY COLOR!

HAVE YOU EVER BOUGHT A GREEN EYESHADOW OR PURPLE ETC, PUT IT ON, AND IT LOOKS DRAB? DOESN’T QUITE LOOK LIKE THE COLOR IN THE ACTUAL PALETTE?

OR HOW ABOUT NEON NAIL POLISH, YOU PUT IT ON IT KIND OF LOOKS TRANSLUCENT?

WELL YOU NEED TO START WITH A WHITE BASE…GET A CREAM BASED EYESHADOW, ANY BRAND, THIS WORKS BEST BECAUSE THE CREAMINESS WILL ACT AS A PRIMER AND A MAGNET!

THEN GO RIGHT OVER WITH DIFFERENT COLORS IN DIFFERENT SECTIONS DEPENDING ON THE LOOK..HERE ARE SOME MORE:

FOR THIS, YOU JUST TAKE SOME CREAM OR MAKEUP REMOVER ON A QTIP AND WIPE A CLEAN LINE AFTER APPLYING THE EYESHADOW OVER THE WHITE TO CREATE THIS CRISP CLEAN LINE.

I JUST DID A PHOTOSHOOT WITH JJ DURAND WITH HELLO ME FILMS AND CREATED A COUPLE LOOKS LIKE THIS AND IT WAS SO EASY. I EVEN USED THE MULTICOLOR PALETTE FROM NYX, THE ONE WITH ALL THE SMALL POTS AND A MILLION BRIGHT COLORS!

2. YOU CAN EVEN CREATE A SMOKIER BRIGHT LIKE THIS LOOK, START WITH A WHITE EYESHADOW BASE INSTEAD (POWDER WHITE EYESHADOW) TO NOT BRIGHTEN YOUR COLORS SO MUCH, INSTEAD IT WILL SOFTEN, AND JUST LAYER, THERES NO RULE! ITS ONLY MAKEUP, GET CREATIVE.

3. CREAM PIGMENTS! THEY COME IN POTS IN ALL DIFFERENT BRANDS, THE LOREAL WHIPPED CREAM PIGMENTS WORK FABULOUS AND LAST HOURS! THIS YOU CAN JUST APPLY WITH BRUSHED OR QTIPS, AND REMEMBER, IF DOESNT COME OUT PERFECT, HUST CLEAN UP THE LINES WITH SOME FACE LOTION ON A QTIP…PRODUCT REMOVES PRODUCT, REMEMBER THAT TIP!

NOW GET OUT TO THE MAKEUP STORE AND TRY ONE THESE LOOKS…I DARE YOU TO BE DIFFERENT!


TOMORROW…WHATS NEW WEDNESDAY…

THE NEON TREND! 

How to Wear Neon (And Not Look Like a Glo-Stick)




wear black as your neutral

It’s the chicest, safest go-with for neons. There’s a reason you’ll see it throughout this story! Also nice: camel, chocolate brown or gray.



stand out on top…

Just not top to bottom. Try a vivid-color hat or sleek electric leggings.



…or brighten up on the bottom”


Put a fresh twist on the skirt suit

have a few LBD alternatives

If you’re sick of your usual sheath or suit, here’s the so-now version—hello, Little Bright Dress…and jacket…and skirt.

NOW GOU OUT AND GET YOUR NEON ON!

TOMORROW…THRIFTY THURSDAY

COLOR BLOCKING TREND… CAN BE NAILS, MAKEUP, ACCESSORIES OR WARDROBE…YOU CHOOSE YOUR WAY!

LETS START WITH NAILS

BIG TREND IN FASHION WEEK FOR SPRING/SUMMER IS MIXING BOLDS WITH BRIGHTS. IN THIS PHOTO, OUR CND TEAM CREATED A BRIGHT PINK NAIL BASE, THEN PAINT A CROSS ON THE NAIL (ONE VERTICAL LINE, ONE HORIZONTAL ) IN THE OPPOSITE COLOR, WE USED BOLD BLUE AND COLOR IN THE OPPOSING CHECKS WITH THE BOLD BLUE, SOOOO EASY!!!

YOU CAN EVEN PAINT EACH NAIL A DIFFERENT COLOR, OR PAINT ALL YOUR NAILS ONE COLOR, AND CREATING A FRENCH ICED TIP IN A DIFFERENT COLOR, ANYTHING GOES.

NEXT, MAKEUP…SAME THING, MIX BOLDS AND BRIGHTS, EITHER IN THE EYESHADOW, OR DO YOUR LIPS ONE COLOR AND YOUR EYESHADOW IN ANOTHER.

NEXT ACCESSORIES…MY FAVORITE, I LOVE SHOES AND BAGS! AGAIN, IT CAN BE ONE COLOR IN THE SHOES, AND OPPOSITE IN THE BAG ETC…

AND SAME FOR CLOTHES, SHIRT CAN BE ONE COLOR THEN ADD A DIFFERENT COLOR BELT. OR COLORED JEANS ARE A BIG HIT RIGHT NOW…

MY SISTER AND I WERE JUST SHOPPING AROUND AND CAME ACROSS THIS TREND ALOT AND YOU CAN FIND THEM REALLY INEXPENSIVE!! 

YOU CHOOSE WHAT FITS YOU AND COLOR BLOCK YOUR OWN WAY. FASHIO SHOWS AND MAGAZINES ALWAYS SHOW THE EXTREME WAY, ITS UP TO YOU TO TAILOR IT DOWN OR UP TO FIT YOUR STYLE.

MAYBE ITS JUST A BRIGHT COLORED HEADBAND AND SHIRT, OR JUST YOUR NAILS, OR LIPSTICK…ITS FUN. AND REMEMBER, TRENDS COME AND GO, SO DON’T SPEND $$$ ON HIGH END WHEN IT’S JUST GOING TO BE OUT OF STYLE SOON.

HAVE A COLOR BLOCKING DAY :)

TOMORROW…THRIFTY THURSDAYS…..
