Why a POP of color should be your new Summer obsession.


Just as the easy, breezy weather calls for lighter and brighter clothes, the season change is an impetus for adding a retina-burning dose of color above the neck, too. If you so dare, consider having a go at yellow, red or even colbalt blue eyeshadow, a bold and invigorating statement that’s easier to pull off than you think.

So you’re not a bold makeup lover-thats fine but if this is the craziest thing you’ll attempt this summer..I think it's time you give it a go. Choosing a wearable color from an eyeshadow palette of bright, lively shades can be seriously intimidating. Here are a few fun ways to swipe, smear and strategically place those wild hues.

  • Start by paring back the rest of your makeup look, keeping it soft+subtle, steering clear of strong contour and focusing on a glowing, even-toned complexion.

  • Before adding pigment to the lids, layer on a matte concealer or eye primer, which is key to get the color to pop. Fix+ hydrating spray intensifies eye shadow colour on impact.

  • Don’t blend +fuss with the shadow too much-you want the pigment to stand out. Press the color on versus swiping and blending with blending brushes.

  • Finish with a coat or two or four of mascara +opting out of liner completely issssa vibe. Using these fun and not so serious shades in place of your liner? M A J O R. don’t overthink it. Be confident. Have fun.
