It can be easy to stick to soft neutrals and nudes in your makeup and whilst we will never be parted from our subtle shimmer shadows, sometimes it can be fun to add a pop of colour into our look.
There is no better time to embrace the bright side than Summer time, so here are a few products and tips to help you liven up your everyday makeup.
A bold bright lip is one of the easiest ways to play with colour in your everyday makeup look. Just apply your usual base and eye makeup before slicking on some bright lipstick.
This season, bold matte red lips are the way to go. We saw it used as the accent colour all over the catwalk in shows like Oscar De La Renta and love how classic it is.

Bold Eye Makeup
Neutral shadows and black liners are the usual for most of us but this Summer, bright, bolder hues are everywhere. Aqua shades of blue and teal look incredible on the lids, paired with bronzed skin.
If you aren't feeling brave enough for a full lid, why not switch out your liner for a coloured liner, a la Monique Lhuillier's emerald green flicks? It is a subtler way to try out colour.
Our Favourite Bold Eye Makeup:
It can be easy to stick with bronzers in Summertime but a richly pigmented blush, high on the cheekbones gives a youthful, fresh look to your makeup. We loved the look at Simone Rocha, especially paired with minimal eye makeup.
To try it yourself, sweep blush in shades of pink, coral or orange from the apples of your cheeks to your cheekbones.
