Playful and Functional Color Makeup

Some women just love makeup. I’m one of them. And why not? It’s fun and can make you feel and look fantastic. I love makeup that looks real and enhances my skin color, evens out my tone and looks natural. I also love a natural looking blush on my cheeks. I like it to all blend in evenly and subtly define my features.

Eye makeup can be subtle or bold. I like subtle neutral tones of varying browns,tans, bronzes and ivory shades. They can be blended to show depth much like a work of art on canvas. There are many looks for natural shadings. Add a gentle brown pencil liner at the lash line, or a darker brown eye shadow shade, add mascara and there, you look great! Of course, you can go with a bolder brown eyeliner and look more dramatic.

Top off with a nude or bare lipstick, surround with natural lip liner and the subtle sexy look is done. For just a bit more pop, add a berry gloss to center of lips.

Now, if you want to look a little more glamorous, you can edge up your eyes. Go for bolder colors in top picks such as green, purple or blue. You can add some sparkle for real pop, along with colored mascara. Line eyes with bold black liner and you will be certainly be noticed.

Generally, if you’re going super bold with eye color, tone it down for lips. To keep bold eyes the center of the face, use a natural nude, pale pink or peach lip color. Too many bright colors on lips and face can look clownish.

Fun with makeup is about experimenting with looks for different moods and occasions. Some life events require subdued makeup and some occasions allow for playfulness. Makeup should also enhance and nourish your skin and keep it healthy and glowing. It should be fun to put on and should be as playful just as you are!
