There are a lot of things to adore about summer—especially the fact that it encourages the sporting of bright makeup looks! Take advantage of this Crayola season by experimenting with some complementary makeup combos. I decided to use a blue-orange color combination, but any two colors that sit directly opposite each other on this here color wheel will pair up beautifully:
What you’ll need:
- Pastel blue eye liner (I used Sephora Collection Colorful Wink-It Felt Liner in Baby Blues)
- Orangey-pink lipstick/stain (I used Benefit’s ChaCha Tint)
How to do it:
Use the eye liner to make a simple winged line on the top of each eyelid.
Trace your lower lash lines with eye liner, right beneath your bottom lashes. Stick to the area that is covered by eyelash: It’s all about simplicity with the lines, nothing fancy.
Lip time! Apply your lipstick/stain, and be precise with the application—the goal is clean lines. Although, on second thought, the popsicle-stained lip look could do very well here, too. It’s up to you! Layer the lipstick/stain until you get a nice color going.
Clean up the edges of both your eyeliner and your lip color, and you’re finished! Prepare yourself to be complimented on these colors. ♦
