How-to: bold and bright summer makeup
Be honest – how often do you reach for the browns, greys and neutrals in your eyeshadow collection? I’m going to go ahead and guess it’s a lot. Because I do it, too. We like to play it safe. Also, we like neutral shades because they tend to look really fabulous.
But what about if we all tried – for just one day – to wear a make-up look that’s a little brighter, a little bolder, a little more fabulous?
I think it sounds like an excellent plan. We loved this Neon Muse look created by cosmetic brand Mirabella, and luckily, we have the how-to to go with it.
