The only kinda blues we want in our life. Prime your eyes and choose a nice bright, bold eyeshadow colour like blue, orange, etc. and swipe it on your eyelids. After that, take a brown shadow on a fluffy blending brush and blend the blue colour to soften the edges and create a seamless transition. Then go ahead and sweep on your liner and add oodles of mascara and you’re set to slay!

Simple, black eyeliners are passe. Bold, vivid and eccentric shades like pink, yellow, blue and even purple are just what you need to add a playful touch to your makeup. You can simply sweep this on your lashline, or if you're feeling a bit more experimental, t draw a negative space cat-eye or a floating crease on your eyelids.

A bright shade of lipstick can make your day brighter! Sweeping on bright, bold lipstick is the simplest way to add colour to your makeup. Even if you decide to keep the rest of your makeup neutral, a bright shade of lipstick like red, orange, bright pink, plum or wine and berry can add a splash of colour to your look.

Coloured mascaras are a huge trend this season and also happens to be the most subtle way to add colour to your makeup. Simply get your hands on a coloured mascara and apply 1-2 coats on your top and bottom lashes to make your peepers pop. Tip: Don’t go overboard with the layers, or it’ll just end up looking tacky.

Who doesn’t love blush? It helps you fake a rosy glow and also makes you look more youthful. But instead of playing it safe and taking the conventional route, try this super fun e-girl blush application trick. You’ll need a pigmented blush for this one, or you’ll have to apply several layers to get the opacity right. Sweep the blush on the bridge of the nose, extending the colour onto the apples of your cheek to create a pore-strip like look. Easy-peasy, right?
