Can normal women (like us) really wear electric blue eyeshadow and purple lips without looking like we belong in a Lil' Mama music video? Founder of Nars Cosmetics Francois Nars says yes.
"Color is fun! Don't be so serious," he says. "After all, it's only makeup."
At the end of the day, even the boldest cat-eye or the most shocking hot pink lip wipe off. So while you may not be able to so easily take back a creative experiment at a tattoo parlor, you can go bold, try colors, and create something new with makeup -- without any risk or consequence.
So for those of you whose makeup palette is starting to resemble your beige-colored living room set, see how to punch up your look with tips from Nars National Makeup Stylist Janice Daoud and celebrity makeup artist David Maderich. They share step-by-step tutorials and product recommendations so you can wear these crazy colors without looking like a bubblegum-smacking teenager.
And if you're still feeling a little unsure about turquoise eyeshadow or fuschia lips, Poppy King, founder of Lipstick Queen Cosmetics, shares her secret to making every color wearable: "For any color you're scared of, you can wear it as a sheer formula," she says. "It doesn't have to be full pigment to be on-trend." Also, when doing a bold makeup color, make sure the rest of your face, and even your clothing and accessories, don't compete. Let your one swipe of wild lip or eyeshadow color garner all of the attention it deserves. Ready to give your boring makeup a kick of color? See how to wear the hottest color trends now.
