Bring Some Bold Color to Your Eyes

If you love bold, bright colours on the eyes, but feel like it’s not a look you can pull off, take your inspiration from Emily Ratajkowski’s bold blue eyeliner. To get the same look, simply switch out your typical black liner with a blue pencil liner and smudge it out into a flattering wing. Celebrity stylists recommend keeping the rest of your makeup simple when the eyes are bold, so be sure to keep the lips and cheeks natural. Your gorgeous peepers are the focal point!


Gloss Up Those Lids

Bold, glossy lips are super trendy, but glossy lids are just as gorgeous and they’re easier to wear. Olivia Munn loves the look of super glossy lids to make the eyes pop. To pull it off, use a shimmery powder highlighter on your lids and top it off with a liquid gloss.

Try J-Lo’s Fashion Forward Lips

If you love to play with colour, here’s some inspiration for your next big night out. We all know Jennifer Lopez loves to heat things up by wearing bold pops of colour on her lips. One of her most memorable looks can be recreated by pairing a bold citron-yellow lippie with subtle eyes and cheeks.



Recreate Jenna’s Romantic Glow

There’s no doubt that blush is a makeup essential for most of us, but Jenna Dewan Tatum takes it to the next level with ethereal, romantic earth-toned looks that are to die for. To recreate this look on yourself, use a blush with a subtle sheen to give your cheeks some glow and a hint of sparkle. Jenna loves to pair peachy-pink cheeks with moss green on the eyes and the result is to die for and wearable for every day!

You Can Pull Off a Classic Red Lip

Everyone can pull off Selena Gomez’s classic red lip, but the trick is to find the best shade of red for your skin tone. If you have warm-toned skin, go for an orange or coral-based red. If your skin is cooler-toned, a blue-based red will work better for you. Selena loves to use liquid lipstick for luscious red lips that last all night.



Go for the Unexpected

Luminous and glowing skin is always on-trend, but if you’re looking to break out of a makeup rut, why not go for the unexpected? Sophia Bush pairs her gorgeous, glistening skin with a gorgeous red eyeshadow for a sexy look that’s totally unexpected. Try a soft shade of red that has some golden flecks to bring out your eyes even more.


Go Fun and Flirty with Shimmering Pink Tones

The frosted Barbie look is especially flattering on blondes. To get the look, use shimmering pink tones on your lips and eyes. Erika Jayne has this look down and creates a fun and flirty look using frosted pink shades with neutral or bare cheeks.



Get Fierce with a Red Cat-Eye


Nothing says fierce glam like a bold, colourful cat eye, so go for the unexpected. Rihanna loves to create her fierce cat eye with a red eyeliner to really shake things up.

Get Inspired by Classic Makeup Looks

Classic makeup looks are so inspiring, and they can be easy to recreate. Jessica Chastain loves retro glam. To recreate her look, sweep peach shadow across your lids, line your eyes with liquid liner, and apply a generous coat of mascara. Finish the look with a red lip and leave the cheeks bare.



Try the “No Makeup” Makeup Look

If you typically wear a lot of makeup, a “No Makeup” makeup look can be a refreshing change. Margot Robbie loves this clean look. She keeps her foundation light and sweeps a romantic pink-toned cream blush on her cheeks and lids. Apply just a touch of mascara and be sure to keep the lips natural and subtle for this look.
