3 Creative Ways to Add Colour Into Your Makeup Routine


Hello, beautiful readers!

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?

Appreciating the little things in life

Hey everyone!

Well, where do I start on this one – this is actually quite a difficult subject to put into words, but I’m gonna try my best and for some reason I just keep feeling that this should be something that I share with you guys.

Appreciating the little things isn’t always that easy. We all dream of having these big, luxurious houses and cars. To travel the world and live in the most expensive hotels. Marrying the perfect partner and having loads of money and wearing expensive brand names only.

.This is so beautiful...and so true. Miracles happen everyday...and all around us.!! We just have to stop, look, and take notice.!!

Well have you ever stopped in the middle of your dream and just noticed who and what is around you? Really noticing who is around you and the things they do for you. Or just noticing the pretty different shades of colour from a flower. Seeing how happy your dog or cat gets when he/she sees you and how he/she actually smiles at you. The cute little note your significant other has left you that has the simple words “I love you” on it.

When you notice these things and realize how special they really are, you will feel your body fill with happiness and gratitude. How does the saying go – “The little things in life are in fact not little.” – because even though it might be the simplest, teenie tiniest of things, it makes us whole. And that is big and wonderful.

Of course there’s nothing wrong with having lots of money and living the lux life, but sometimes we tend to go through life with eye caps on. Even if you’re the poorest man on earth, there’s always something that will make you smile. Even if you’re the richest man on earth, there’s always something that will make you smile. You just have to find it yourself. You have to find that content and calm feeling you get when someone brings you a coffee or sends you a short text or just do’s something for you that’s of the littlest of efforts, but that you know that person does it from their heart.

We go through life always being in a rush, that the little things goes unnoticed. We’re afraid that we’ll miss out on that lux life we’re always dreaming of, that we forget to just sit back and breathe and look around us.

I believe that if more of us noticed these small things and appreciate and cherish them, we would all be a lot happier. Like genuinely happy.

It is sometimes difficult to just stand back a little and just notice. But doing this would make you so much more grateful and appreciative of the things you have in life.

Learn to appreciate the little things 🙂 because they aren’t all that little.

I hope you guys understand the message I’m trying to bring out in this post, it’s quite simple, but still tricky.
