How To: Be more adventurous with your makeup
Rock a bold lip
Nothing makes a stronger statement than a bright, bold, lip bold colour. While deep purples are favoured for winter, why not switch it up for a bright, vibrant red like ModelCo Party Proof Lipstick in ‘After Hours‘? Or try one of the new long-lasting, highly pigmented Lip Lacquers. Available in two colours, ModelCo Lip Lacquer Lip Gloss is a dense, high-colour gloss available in deep and rich pinks – a fun way to try out the bold trend without fully taking the plunge.
A pop of colour for your peepers
If you have the time to spare, why not try something stand out on your lids. A metallic green on the lower inner rim can open the eyes up brighter than ever before. Try ModelCo Eyeshadow Trio in Island Fever which features ‘Costa Rica’ a neutral beige sheen, ‘Positano’ a shimmering tropical turquoise and ‘Tahiti’ a matte midnight navy, perfect for creating an eye catching blend of hues.
Switch up winged-eye
There’s something about the winged liner look that is flattering on everyone. However, instead of a black liquid or gel finish, dip your brown pencil in water and create a thick, bold line across the top lash line. Smudge it across the line so it looks ‘undone’, then line the inner upper rim. Finish off by holding a business card to the corner of your eye and tracing your pencil along it for a short, sharp flick. Finish with lashings of volumising mascara, like ModelCo Fat Lash, and congratulate yourself on being so gosh darn clever and on-trend for 2014.
Forget what you think about false lashes only being for the evening. Why not choose ModelCo Flutter False Lashes – ‘Individual’ for every day? They’re the perfect accompaniment for appearing fresh-faced and wide eyed. Simply place the lashes to the outer edges only and line the top lash line to blend. If you’re after a little va-va-voom, experiment with ‘Dazzle’ or ‘Julie’ for long-lasting, dramatic lashes in the blink of an eye.
Shimmer and shine your way to glam
Using a shimmer spray all year round gives your skin a boost of radiance while alluding to healthy, highlighted skin. ModelCo Shimmer Airbrush Illuminiser is the ultimate highlighting shimmer spray for face, body and hair and is perfect for use every day. Use it sparingly along the decolletage and shin bones to boost the appearance of natural highlights and dab it across your cheekbones for a more dramatic finish.
