4 Cool Ways To Wear Colored Eye Makeup

Share

While we always encourage creativity in the makeup department, there is one time of year when you are particularly free to experiment with your look sans judgement: Festival season. Like true beauty junkies, we’ve already begun planning our makeup wardrobe and it involves bright splashes of color and pops of pretty pastels so enticing we may just continue wearing them all summer. Here, the best inspiration for festival-ready eyes—all of which are guaranteed to score you a 10 in case you do happen to be judged.

Two-Toned Eye Shadow

Take your eye shadow game up a notch by pairing 2 shades in the same color family and wearing them at the same time. To get this look, apply a metallic blue shadow on the entire lid and a shimmery green on the lower lash line. Use a small brush to blend the 2 colors in the inner corners.

Creative Eyeliner Placement

Sure, you could line the entire eye with a colored eyeliner but this festival season, get creative with the placement. With a bright blue pencil, line the inner three-quarters of the waterline and the outer corners of the top lash line.
