How to be bold with colour this party season
If party season has you feeling as popular as a gelato shop on a hot summer’s day, you’re probably going to need a lot of inspiration to get you through your upcoming events. This season, it’s all about injecting bold, fun colours into your look. And don’t worry if you can’t afford a new outfit for every race day, engagement party or BBQ you’re invited to - you can easily take the colour trends from the runway, and use them to create your beauty look. This is what we’re predicting will dominate this season:
The shade of green and the way you wear it is essential to nailing this colour trend. Think fresh greens, like mint and emerald, rather than anything too bright or fluoro. They’re still bold, but are firmly on the cool side of the colour spectrum. When using green cosmetics, keep it subtle and let the colour do the work. Try swapping your standard black liner for one in deep green (adding a set of false lashes will really make the colour pop!) or go for a smoky combination of moss and gold shadow.
A hint of pink
Pink is such a strong colour, and it can transform an average outfit into an eye-grabbing masterpiece. If you really want to make a statement with your beauty look, try a pop of hot pink on your lips, or go for a more relaxed, beach-to-bar vibe with a coral-pink shade instead. Something as simple as a pink blush with peach undertones swept across your cheeks can also be effective in amping up your summer glow. The key is to keep everything else pared back, and let your pink take centre stage. Or for a fail-safe way to dip a finger into this trend (literally), try a pink hue on your nails. Anything from rose to fuchsia - whichever takes your fancy!
Imagine palm leaves, exotic birds, jungle animals and brightly coloured blooms – all of which scream ‘summer’ and ‘party season’. How can I incorporate these patterns in my beauty look, you ask? Add a brightly patterned statement nail to your regular mani or play around with false lashes for a fierce feline look. Braids are also a great way to create that summer island feel and you can always secure a palm leaf among your strands using bobby pins.
But the easiest way of all - we’re talking zero effort here - is via your accessories. Pulling out a compact mirror or tweezers covered in a vibrant pattern is such a simple way to embrace all of these trends, especially when the designs come from fashion label We Are Handsome.
