First rule of thumb is to choose one: eyes, lips, cheeks. In order not to overdo it or look like a clown, pick one feature to accentuate, while keeping the others neutral.
Pucker up with something vibrant. Lips are one the easiest ways to wear a bright color. Choose a hot pink, vivid red, summery orange or coral that works for your skin tone. Stay away from, yellows/golds, blues, greens, purples. Save those for the eyes!
If you love eye shadow don’t hesitate to wear an electric blue, emerald green, lemony yellow and intense purple. Apply from the lash-line and fade out toward the brow. Top it all off with a couple of coats of black mascara. Want to be subtle? Keep a natural eye and either add cobalt blue or purple mascara, or any color liner of your choice
With a loud pink, red or orange blush can add a dramatic effect to your look and can be expressive and flattering if worn correctly. Have a light hand, start at the ear and brush toward the apple of the cheek. This is great for a night out.
Nails? Go for it! Any color your little heart desires!
