Ok beauties! It’s time to toss (or very gently place) those nude palettes to the side and rock out with some bright eyeshadow!
If you’ve ever told yourself that you can’t wear bright eyeshadow for whatever silly reason, it is time to reverse the curse! Bright eyeshadow is a fun way to be expressive- and what is more expressive than the eyes?! Make yours pop with the perfect color for you! Whether you’re a fair maiden, a bronzed goddess or a deep-ly beautiful woman of color- you can go bold with some brights!
Deep Tones with Bright Blues and Purples
If you’re rockin some sexy chocolate skin (milky or dark chocolate- always delicious) try some bright purple and blue tones on your lids! These shades will give you a boost of brightness but are gorgeously wearable for any everyday look. But, seriously, your beautiful melanin will honestly look amazing with any bright colors. To make sure that your colors are poppin’ to their ultimate brightness- use a white eyeshadow primer! Just use the primer where you want your color tho, and blend the edges smoothly to create a blended eyeshadow look.
Medium Tones with Bold Red-Orange
If you’ve got the golden butterscotch babe look, then throw some red or orange on your eyes! This shade will bring out the warmth in your skin and pops on any color of eye. You can go big and bold to make a statement with this color, or blend it softly into a smokey-eye for a sultry style. You can wear these orange lids anywhere, pop some in your crease and head to office lookin’ fly!
Fair Skin with Electric Yellows and Greens
My creamy marshmallow sistren with the fair skin, go neon with an electric yellow or green! Being fair is kinda like having a clean canvas, you can paint it up. The colors will also show bright and more true to tone against your skin. I love a bright accent of yellow or green! Go all over with the color and it looks amazing, or just add a bit to the corner for a subtle look. The Radioactive Stack has the perfect slime green and neon yellow for your eyes!
Try these looks for a wearable take on some bright eyeshadow! You can be bold and tame, or just bold and bold, but it’s always fun to shake it up with something new. Try some colors you’ve never used before. When you’re going bold, just remember the best color you can wear is confidence and the most important rule is to follow no rules!
