4 Easy Ways to Add Color to Your Makeup! (Bloggers Do It Better #1)

Hi guys!
So this is my first post in the Bloggers Do It Better Challenge! I am so insanely excited for this challenge because I love the girls and the topics sound like they're going to be a lot of fun! This first topic was Bloggers Do Spring Better, which I loved because it was really open ended! I thought it would be fun to show my favorite products to easily add color to your routine because I know that spring and summer are bright and colorful! Here we go!



1) Use a Peach or Coral Blush
I love peaches and corals on my cheeks during the spring and summer! I think that they are super beachy looking and look a lot more natural than some heavier shades like plums or apricots! If you have fair skin, I would try going towards a peach just because they tend to be lighter and if you have really deep skin, try using a coral! My favorites are Benefit Coralista and MAC Immortal Flower. 




2) Use a Navy Liner
You can really use any color eyeliner, but I love using navy because it is dark enough to give definition to your lashline, but is still really fun! Also, if you have brown eyes, navy is going to make them look really great! My favorites are MAC Waveline and Mally Sailor. Navy is also great if you are new to incorporating color because it can be really subtle!



3) Be a Bronze Goddess with Bronzer!
I love whipping out the bronzer during this time of the year because it gives your skin a really pretty glow! Even if you have naturally tan skin, I think that a nice bronzer can really perk up your skin and make it look sunkissed! I like ones with a tad bit of shimmer so you get a glow, but if you have oily skin, try to find a matte one so the shimmer doesn't exacerbate the shininess! My favorites are Jouer Mattifying Bronzer and Stila One Step Bronze. 
  


4) Go All Out with Funky Lips!
I didn't really know what to call this because it's not necessarily "neon" or "bright", as much as funky and different! I love bright bold lip colors (especially the Maybelline Vivids), but I think that "funky" can also apply to nudes! One of my favorite nude colors is MAC To Catch A Sailor (center), which is a lot more brown and frosty than most lipsticks, but looks great on! The other lipsticks pictured are Maybelline Vivid Rose (right) and Shocking Coral (left).
 
So I hope that you enjoyed my first bloggers do it better post! Let me know what your favorite ways to add color into your makeup are! I also love doing bright nails, but I don't have any specific shades so I didn't include it in this post! That can be a whole separate post by itself!

  3. My favourite ways to add colour are bright lipstick or bright eyeliner :D I don't tend to go for bronzer though, I embrace my paleness :P

  4. thanks Becca! What are your favorite bright eyeliner colors and do you use bright liners on the upper lashline? I don't tend to use them as much on my upper lashline because it doesn't give much definition to my lashline.

  5. I go for any colour really, I quite like blues, greens, and purples though :) I use them more on my upper lashline because I haven't really got the hang of lower lashline lining (try saying that five times fast) yet :P

  8. Yeah I've really been loving cobalt blue liner! I think that blues greens and purples are great because they give more definition to your lashline than lighter colors!

    I normally go for blue or purple for the pop of colour, and then on my lips I normally go for a bright pink, but lately I have been using a lot of oranges :)
