I love, love, love bright lips, and I also love purple and black lips when going out at night. Unnatural is where it’s at!

I love smokey and dark eyes, and I love a pop of color in eye makeup – like a neutral eye with a teal liner – and I’ll wear that kind of thing myself.

As for an eye look made entirely of bright colors, I can appreciate it if it’s well done, it really shows skill off well, and it can look awesome, but it’s not something I wear myself on a day to day basis.

Colorfulness is my favorite aspect of makeup! (You might not be surprised to know that I did not buy the Naked palettes :P)

I think it’s great if it’s done tastefully. there’s a line between colorful, daring makeup and looking ridiculous and clownish.

I love colorful makeup but don’t always know how to incorporate items into a daily look so checking tutorials, looks, blogs teaches me ideas on how to use Woodstock in the crease when it’s a color I liked but thought would make me look like I had been crying for weeks if I wore it. After time, I’m able to create some of my own variations…including those that I only do when I’m not leaving home πŸ™‚

I. LOVE. IT. Mhmmm. πŸ˜€ It’s art to me. I’ve always been attracted to colors, textures, and finishes; however, I can’t draw, paint, etc. Well, I can, but I mean it wouldn’t be good, lol. Makeup is my one artsy, fun thing. I am a big fan of more wearable, natural/neutral looks, too. I feel more comfortable and appropriate in certain settings with minimal or toned down looks. Also, sometimes I just want too look polished and put together with little effort, so use makeup to simply enhance. More colorful makeup will always be my first love when it comes to makeup, though. I have absolutely no problem with wearing the looks I create to go out of the house, either. I try to wear bright or more colorful makeup in a variety of ways; sometimes just a pop of a bright color, other times more color, but still wearable, and sometimes more avant garde/editorial type looks (Usually out of boredom, but rarely wear those out.).

I’ve also noticed, I have a hard time buying neutral makeup, especially if it’s more expensive. It’s not unique, unless it’s an exceptional formula that I can’t find elsewhere, so it just seems silly to me. I don’t know, but anyone who knows me knows I’m weirder when it comes to neutral makeup whereas most people have a weirdness about colorful makeup.

I think some people have faces better suited to it than others, but generally really like it. Personally, I tend to be a bit shy about really bold eye shades, but I regularly rock a bold fuschia or magenta lip.

I love it! I’ve been doing more neutral toned looks lately out of tiredness, but I still love my bright, vivid colors.

I love bright lipstick and blush but I’m sometimes too lazy to do bright eyes because they take more planning and work than neutral eyeshadow. I loveee bright eyeshadow on other people though! πŸ™‚

I used to ONLY wear neutral colors and blue eyeshadow (except for lips). Then I started buying palettes with bright colours (THANKS UD!!). I don’t wear bright colours everyday because I find I just can’t slap on and go out the house. For me colour placement and colour matching is important, or else I look like a clown. I wear bright/colorful make-up probably 3-4 times a week, and more if I wake up on time *LOL*

I love a cut crease and gradient effect. In the Spring I love pastels and the summer full on primary colours. In the fall and winter I wear both depending on the outfit colour.

I won’t wear bright, colorful eye (or cheek!) look but if I’m going out or feeling feisty I love a bright lipstick πŸ™‚
