Be bold

Say goodbye to the boring look and add some bold colors to your makeup bag with this makeup tutorial.

Looking to spice up your makeup routine? We've got your back, girl. Try these three tutorials and learn how to rock brighter colors every day.

Bold eyeliner

1

DIY Bold eyeliner: Pick a color

Choose a fun eyeliner color you've been drooling over... and never been brave enough to wear.

2

DIY Bold eyeliner: Use eyeliner pencil

Take your eyeliner pencil and draw a sideways "football" shape, starting at the inner corner of the eye, drawing outward. (Tip: the eyeliner should extend out past the outer corner of your eye making a "cone" shape at the end).

3

DIY Bold eyeliner: Fill in lines

Fill in the lines, going over several times to make sure it's filled in well and looks bold. (Hint: Keeping the bold eyeliner only on the top ensures it's "daytime appropriate" and doesn't overpower your face).

4

DIY Bold eyeliner: Curl lashes

Curl lashes and apply mascara as usual.

5

DIY Bold eyeliner: Use soft pink or peach blush

Brush on a soft pink or peach blush.

6

DIY Bold eyeliner: Finished

Last, swipe on a soft gloss and your look is complete.

Bright eyeshadow

1

DYI bright eyeshadow: Use one color over eyelid

Lay down one eyeshadow color over the entire lid. (Tip: Choose something "on trend" for the season.)

2

DYI bright eyeshadow: Extend past crease

Extend the eyeshadow out past your crease and slightly past the outer corner of the eye.

3

DYI bright eyeshadow: Apply under eye

Apply the same eyeshadow under the eye too. You can drag it all the way across the under-eye or just keep at the outer corner (as I've done here).

4

DYI bright eyeshadow: Apply mascara

Apply mascara as usual.

5

DYI bright eyeshadow: Dust on blush

Dust on a blush complementary to the eyeshadow color. (Example: I used a peach blush since I'm wearing a warm-toned eyeshadow. If you were wearing a green, purple or blue eyeshadow you would wear a pink blush.)

6

DYI bright eyeshadow: Finish with sbdued lip color

Finish with a subdued lip color. I used a warm nude to complement my warm shadow and blush. Keeping within the same tone family makes this bold eyeshadow wearable during the day. This way, the makeup won't scream at you, you'll just look soft and trendy.

Extreme cat-eye and bold lip

1

DIY Extreme cateye and bold lips: use soft eyeshadow

Begin by laying down one soft eyeshadow all over the lid.

2

DIY Extreme cateye and bold lips: Draw an angled line with black eyeliner

Next, take an angled brush loaded with potted black eyeliner (or you can use liquid liner) and angle the brush toward the end of your eyebrow. Lay down the eyeliner at the midway point between your eyebrow and the outer corner of your eye. Draw an angled line at this point and bring it back to the outer corner of your eye.

3

DIY Extreme cateye and bold lips: Connect lines

Next, starting at the inner corner of your eye, draw a thick line connecting the inner corner to the outer corner.

4

DIY Extreme cateye and bold lips: Fill under iline

Fill in the skin underneath the line so that your eyeliner is a thick solid, angled line. (Tip: If any part of the liner is uneven, simply re-dip your brush and slowly go back over the uneven area with a steady hand.)

5

DIY Extreme cateye and bold lips: Drag out eyeliner

Drag a small amount of eyeliner on the outer corner of the under-eye. Be sure the liner on the under-eye and upper lids meet.

6

DIY Extreme cateye and bold lips: Apply mascara

Apply mascara as you normally would.

DIY Extreme cateye and bold lips: Brush on soft pink or peach blush

Brush on a soft pink or peach blush.
