How To Wear Colorful Makeup Without Looking Like A Clown

Neutral makeup shades that are closest to your skin tone give a more natural look and are easy for anyone to pull off. But if you’ve been admiring the neon makeup trend or the colorful makeup looks on HBO’s “Euphoria” and think you can’t pull off wearing colorful makeup, then you are wrong. Here we’ll give you some basic tips on how to wear colorful makeup without looking like a clown.

Francois Nars, the legendary makeup artist and brand founder once said in an interview, “Beige, ivory or brown tones are great for basic makeup, but it’s nice to break them up with a deep blue, purple or green.” He explains, “Adding a touch of strong color to a neutral base makes it more elegant, and it’s easier than using one tone all over.”

These are three easy ways to incorporate color into your neutral makeup looks.

1- A Bold Statement Lip

Keep the rest of your makeup simple and clean like perfected brows and long lashes with minimal eye shadow and wear a bright colored matte lipstick. This look is not only very polished but super easy to do.

4- Layer Bold Blushes

Show off your fabulous cheeks bones by layering blush shades. Start with a darker shade closest to the hair line and a brighter shade on the apple of the cheek. Layer a highlighter on the top portion of the cheek bone making sure the three shades blend seamlessly together. The gradation of color gives a lifted look to the face.
