I am a big fan of natural, fresh-looking makeup, but I also think it’s fun to change things up every once in a while. One of my favorite ways to do this is with a bold eye.
There’s no need to stick with brown or black— this season is all about pops of color. Try lining your eyes with a teal, blue, or purple shade. Don’t have an eyeliner in one of these colors? In the photo below, I used an eyeliner brush to swipe a nearly-navy shadow around my eyes.
Here’s the look from far away:
And here is a closeup:
This look is subtle enough for daytime, and you can pump up the volume at night by adding false lashes or a few extra coats of mascara. I wouldn’t recommend using red or pink liner around your eyes— it can give you a bloodshot look… not cute.
Remember the most important makeup rule: you only want to accentuate one feature at a time. So if you’re going for bold eyes, keep the lipstick light and the bronzer or brush to a minimum!
