If there’s one beauty lesson we’ve learnt from the likes of Lily Collins, Taylor Hill, and Sophia Bush this week, it’s this: now is the time to inject some serious color into your makeup look. Whether it’s a slick of turquoise liner, a flush of lilac, or midnight-blue smoky eyes, there are clearly no rules when it comes to being creative with your hue of choice. Go ahead and brave it this weekend – before voting for your favorite beauty look of the week, that is.
Alison Brie embraced the bright trend with both her outfit and her makeup at The Lego Movie 2 premiere this week. Braving a fuchsia Magda Butrym minidress and turquoise liner to define her eyes, she proved that clashing colors can look seriously cool.
Two words to describe Lily Collins’ look? Purple perfection. Makeup artist Vincent Oquendo buffed the Lancôme ‘Ombre Hypnôse Stylo Shadow Stick in Rose Pastel’ all over her lids, blending it out into the crease, before adding a slick of high-drama mascara to really make her brown eyes pop.
Taylor Hill opted for autumnal hues and a more pared-down look this week, still incorporating color, but in a subtle way. Hung Vanngo used a palette of browns with hints of gold to adorn her eyes, lips, and cheeks – a touch of 70s flair paired perfectly with big, bouncy hair.
Vanessa Hudgens also made purple her pick this week, sporting a stunning lilac-washed eye, courtesy of makeup artist Allan Avendaño. Teamed with tousled locks and a creamy nude lip, she proved that purple can be chic and wearable.
The ultimate way to accessorize a sequined midnight-blue gown by Prabal Gurung? With midnight-blue makeup, of course. Sophia Bush’s look has totally inspired us to brave a blue hue, especially when worn with wet-look waves and natural skin.
