Fall is in full-swing, and many of the colour palettes you see in clothing and makeup tend to revolve around darker hues. Colours like burgundy, grey, black, and burnt orange are common. Just because these fall colours are popular doesn’t mean you can’t sneak bright, summery colours into your makeup routine!
1. Rock a bold lip
A bold lipstick colour instantly polishes your makeup look. Deep reds, purples, and even metallic silver are shades I’ve seen everywhere this season. A highly pigmented, bright lip colour is one creative outlet for showcasing your favourite shades. My personal favourite bright lip colours are:
- Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in K-Dub: This shade is a bold, bright fuchsia
- M.A.C. Cosmetics Lipstick in Diva – A deep burgundy
- Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Cotton Candy – An electric blue-violet
2. Start with your nails
Nail polish is the easiest way to add colour to your makeup routine. It is a lot easier to let loose with a bright nail polish if you find bright lipstick shades daunting. Because your hands are otherwise makeup-free, you don’t have to worry that your nail polish colour is going overboard.
3. Vibrant cheeks
Many new highlight palettes feature bright, bold colours. Swipe a metallic blue, purple, or pink highlight onto your cheekbones to add a pop of colour to your makeup. If you wish to incorporate the colour into other areas of your face, a metallic highlight is also perfect as eyeshadow. (I’ve also used it as lipstick on occasion, and it works quite well!)
How do you like to incorporate colour into your makeup routine?
