8 Daring Color Trends Everyone Can Pull Off
Is your makeup bag filled with brown eyeshadows and clear lip glosses? If so, it may be time to break out of your beige-colored comfort zone and try one of these hot new color trends. We'll show you how
Hot fuchsia cheeks"A pop of fuchsia is perfect for everyone," says Daoud. But you also don't want to look like you're going to Studio 54 at noon, so "make sure to use just a touch of the color on the apples of your cheeks," says Maderich. We recommend Make Up For Ever Powder Blush in Neon Pink, $19. Want to know the best way to wear this color based on your skin tone?
For fair to medium skin tones: Apply a light application of the color on the apples of your cheeks for a slight flush, says Maderich. If the fuchsia is still too bright for your taste, apply a translucent powder on top to soften the edges of the color.
For darker skin tones: Opt for a darker fuchsia and do a heavy application of the color. Try MAC Powder Blush in Frankly Scarlet, $20. "I love this color -- it's kind of a disco look," Maderich says.
Bonus: For light to medium skin tones, apply a paler shade of fuchsia on the lips, says Maderich. And for darker skin tones, do a matching fuchsia hue on the lips. Pair it with a neutral, taupey eye. "For a night look, do a slight cat-eye to punch it up," he says.
