I’ve recently been obsessed with colour clashing my makeup. You only have to take one look at my Insta feed to know that I am a huge fan of bright, bold colours, especially cerise pinks and mysterious greens. I really enjoy experimenting with different hues and seeing how they work together. It’s all trial and error though, sometimes you nail it, other times it’s really not a good look. The beauty is in trying different combinations out.
Colour clashing green and pink
It was the bright and colourful theme on my Instagram feed that made me want to get experimental with my makeup ahead of a recent Blossoms gig. I opted to use one of my favourite palettes from Makeup Revolution which I previously reviewed in this post.
I also wanted to pair a glittery green eye with a long-standing favourite lipstick Revlon ‘Cherries In The Snow’ – The most moisturising hot pink lipstick encased in a vintage-esc bullet. I know that this vibe is not for everyone, but I personally love a pink and green clash.
Bright pink lips & green glittery eyes makeup menu
- Makeup Revolution ‘Make Magic’ palette
- Revlon ‘Cherries In The Snow’ Lipstick
- Primark ‘Ps No Angel’ Highlighter
- Benefit ‘Supercat Liquid Liner’
- Maybelline ‘The Colossal’ Volume Express Mascara
- Illamasqua Skin Base Foundation in 4.5
For my eye makeup, I started with a base of ‘Too Cool’ from Maybelline Color Tattoo, I then used a mix of the shades ‘Integrity’, an iridescent sage green, ‘Self Made’ a peacock teal shade and ‘Make Magic’ a glittery muted blue all from the Make Magic palette. The outcome blended different hues of blue and green to give a look that had depth and mystery.
- For this look, I wanted a really porcelain, fresh base, to really let the colours do the talking. I only used foundation, concealer and a bit of highlighter.
- Layer ‘Integrity’ over the ‘Too Cool’ cream base.
- Mix Integrity with a small sweep of ‘Self Made’.
- Finish by pressing ‘Like Magic’ into the inner crease and reapplying a layer of ‘Integrity’ over the top.
- If you have any loose glitter pigments, I definitely recommend this the time to whip them out!
And there we have it, easy pink and green makeup to make all your colour clash dreams come true!
