Just because the seasons have changed and the trend is to wear darker vampy makeup doesn’t mean you have to force yourself to rock vampire-chic on a daily basis. As it gets closer to the party season, it can be good idea to wear a variety of colours, especially if you find yourself wearing a darker coloured Winter-appropriate outfit.

I’m going to give you some potential options to add some colour to your makeup bag and make sure that you’re ready for the upcoming seasonal parties. Click on the prices or images below to be take to the website:

Kevyn Aucoin Cream Blush in Liquifuchsia by Space NK – £19

This bright purply-pink cream blush will give you all the colour without too much intensity. It has a sheer finish and as it is in a cream form, can easily be blended out for a glowy flush of colour on the cheek.

Laura Mercier Lip Glace in Camellia by Space NK – £18.50

Don’t let the fact that this is a lip gloss fool you. This pink Laura Mercier lip glace is highly pigmented and will give your lips a perfectly glossy look. The gloss can be worn alone as a bright feature to your makeup along with nude eyes and subtle blush or to fully embrace the bright makeup look, can be worn along with a colourful eye and bright blush.

OPI Nail Varnish by Cloud 10 Beauty –  £9.50 each

This rainbow of OPI nail varnishes is sure to get you wanting to paint them all on your nails! If you’re a bit unsure of too much colour on your face, then why not let your hands to the talking? Bright nail polish looks great as a pop of shocking colour when worn with a dark outfit; such as all black. Or why not get experimental and use a mixture of colours for some creative nail art?

Sleek i-Divine Eyeshadow Palette by Cloud 10 Beauty – £7.99

This eyeshadow palette is full of colour which will allow you to be bright and creative. Pick one colour then blend it out with a darker colour in the eye crease area, or even use a wash of one colour all over the lid for a catwalk-inspired makeup look. The possibilities truly are endless with this one.
