The cool thing about makeup is you can create as many looks as you want and then wash it away at the end of the day. Therefore, it does not hurt to play around once in a while and rock bold colours, especially if you usually don’t.
No rules apply when creating bold looks as long as you find colours that work for you and compliment you. So whether it’s bold eyeshadow, bold lips or both that you’re thinking of rocking, get some inspiration from some of the looks below and start planning today…
The colour combination on this model for a Zen Magazine shoot is on point. The vibrant colours on the face paired with the gele and accessories create a stunning look.
Nigerian-American Youtuber Jackie Aina is the queen of empowering black females to use colour. Although she has bold colours on her eyes it does not overtake the bold lipstick she has on. Both compliment each other really well!
Supermodel Jourdan Dunn is working colour in this shoot. Not only are her eyes and lips screaming bold, but her nail polish is also adding a bright touch.
Nigeria’s finest Tiwa Savage looks gorg with this look created for her ‘If I Start to Talk’ music video. The different shades of purple allow her to look edgy yet soft.
DJ Brittany Sky shows it’s true when they say ‘Orange is the new Black’. Her bold orange eye shadow flatters her brown eyes and skin tone beautifully.
Beauty blogger Dimma aka ThatIgboChick always looks great in the looks she puts together. Her choice of yellow eye shadow and red lips to match her turban is genius!
The infamous MakeupShayla aka Slay’la is no stranger to going bold. Her dark lipstick just screams all type of fierce…yass hunny!
Hope after all this make-up inspo you have some ideas now ladies. Ready, set, go BOLD!
