Don’t be afraid to be a little bold


484184_10150969052117184_306727096_nThere is a fine line between bold makeup and “clown” makeup and it is okay to cross it sometimes. There are times and places for some of the crazier looks you see online done by really creative and bold people. Makeup conventions and raves are perfect places for some of the crazier looks. But not everyone has the guts to be that bold and that is okay too.

If you ever want to get to that level or at least get out of your neutral-shaded comfort zone, here are a few looks using colors other than brown without being entirely over the top.


Neutral looks


Stila In The Know paletteThis is really the only neutral-color palette I own, cause how many do you really need anyway? It’s really only to show what a basic neutral palette looks like anyway. Any neutral palette works for creating simple-but-effective work-environment-safe looks, amiright? So here are a few tutorials, some using this particular palette and others just using neutral colors in general (specifics provided in the videos, of course.) Enjoy!

5-minute look for the lazy pretties


We all have those days where we’re too lazy to get all dolled up or worse, do not have the time for it. There are a lot of cases where wearing the bare minimum or nothing at all is okay. It is okay not to wear makeup sometimes (gasp!). For example, I almost never bother putting any on for school; because it is just school, not a catwalk. No one really looks at you closely enough anyway.

Even so, I have those in-between days where I want to put something on but am too lazy to go all out. Most recently, I do my eyebrows, mascara, contour my face and put on some tinted lip balm. Or only one of those things. Just enough to look alive, as I am pale as a ghost. Even a little makeup can do something for the confidence.
