Colorful makeup and vibrant hair are two things that we are crazy about here at Manic Panic. If you’ve struggled to adopt the colorful makeup look into your everyday look, the team at Manic Panic is here to help. We are going to go over a few of the things that you should consider when selecting the colors that you use and go about creating your look. Let’s get started.

Skin Tone

One of the many things that you need to consider when choosing colorful makeup is your skin tone. While one color may look absolutely gorgeous with one skin tone, it might not work for a different complexion. Rather than go straight for colors that you like, take some time and look into which colors work well with your skin tone and start there. 

Natural Features

Your natural features (especially the ones that you’re confident about) should always be something that you’re thinking about when completing your look. This is even more so the case when you want to introduce bold colors into your makeup bag. If you have gorgeous blue eyes, fiery red hair, or an olive skin tone, you are going to want to incorporate colors that help these features stand out and spotlight your natural beauty.

Create a Focus

If you’re new to incorporating bold colors into your look, don’t feel like you need to go all out with bold colors on your first few attempts. In fact, one of the best things that you can do is to start out by focusing on only one part of your face. By using a bold color on only one part of your face, you can work around that color and determine whether or not you want to add additional colors to the look. 

Pair with Neutrals

While we’re on the topic of creating one focal point with the bold colored makeup, it’s important to note that you absolutely want to pair bold colors with neutrals. Though there are many looks that incorporate a handful of colors and look absolutely gorgeous, it can be really easy for a look to get out of control. When that happens, makeup can look more messy than a put together piece of art. In order to avoid that, pair your bold and vibrant colors with neutrals that tone it down just a bit.  

Matching Outfit

Another way that you can make your makeup just a little less overwhelming is by wearing an outfit that goes with the brightly colored makeup. Even though the makeup will still be just as bright, it’s not going to stand out quite as much because the rest of your outfit will help it blend in. This is a great way to start introducing brightly colored makeup into your makeup routine without feeling like it’s the only thing that people will notice. Once you’ve gotten a bit more comfortable and have perfected a handful of looks, you will feel all the more confident wearing colorful makeup regardless of what you’re wearing.

Already Done Looks

If you are just getting started playing around with bold and colorful makeup, it can be extremely easy to get lost in the process and wind up with a look that is a bit clowny. In order to avoid that, start by looking up colorful looks that have already been done. By doing so, you can get a good idea of how a particular look will pair with your eye color or what types of colors you’d want to include in your outfit. It’s also just a little bit easier to find some inspiration ratherthan to freestyle your first few makeup routines. With that being said, it doesn’t take long for you to find the confidence and skills to create a masterpiece of your own.

Have Fun With It

There are so many “rules” associated with makeup, but there’s no genuine reason that we need to follow them. The way that we see it here at Manic Panic, if you want to try something new, why not? If you’ve been dying to see what blue eyeshadow would look like with your eyes or what a black lipstick would do to an outfit, try it! Makeup is a fantastic way to express yourself and is intended to be fun; don’t lose sight of that when playing around with makeup.
