Looking for a way to brighten up your day? Or perhaps just bored of the same makeup looks, day-in and day-out. Just because it’s February doesn’t mean you can’t step out of the box and do something with tons of color or fun. This includes your clothes as well as makeup! Have fun with your creativity and brighten up your day with some awesome makeup looks. You will definitely stand out from the crowd.

Eyeliner Color 

Every color under the sun can be picked up in an eyeliner pencil or liquid formula – well maybe not every color but you get our drift. Grab a few bright colors like vibrant aqua or turquoise for your lash lines and smudge out a vivacious purple. Use any color you’d like, why not? The point is to have fun and express yourself. If you have a colorful patterned blouse with some complimentary colors, wear them together to help your eyes really stand out, not that you’ll need it!

Open up the fabulous features on your face with a great highlighter. Areas like under your brow bone, over Cupid’s bow (emphasizes your pout), right down the bridge (to slim your nose) and cheekbones can really benefit from highlighter. It creates the illusion of prominent features and tricks the eye into thinking shapes, sizes and forms are different. It also brings attention to areas you want to emphasize. Highlight your facial features to really add to your stand-out look.

Bronzed Goddess

Summer never ends in our hearts. It doesn’t matter what the season or time of year it is, if someone looks bronzed you think of hot, sunny days. Sun kissed. Put on some contour, smoke out your eyes with bronze/brown shimmer, and add a light bronze/nude lip gloss. You’ll feel (and look) like you just returned from an all-inclusive vacation – if that doesn’t brighten your mood, we don’t know what will!

Jewel Tones

These come in many different colors and pigments. You can make a loud color statement by applying some jewel tone matte to your lids with a vivid, luscious color. Or you can tone it down a little with a jewel tone shimmer to add color but keep it more subtle. Either way, eyeshadow jewel tones will certainly make your eyes pop, any day of the year.


Metallics will bring an even brighter element to your bright eyed make up. They reflect, attract, and contrast bright colors in all the right ways. For a more modern twist on your fabulous make up look, try a liquid silver, or gold lid, and a bronzy lip that gives the feel of a wistful, hot summer day. Trust us, we are ALL longing for summer..
