Beauty School: Art and the use of colour

Granted this isn’t the best entry to write on a BlackBerry as I can’t add pics, but rest easy my lovelies, they will come.

Today’s lesson is all about colour and the fact that you must use it. Seriously.

Let’s start easy. Lips.everyone in christendom can wear a shot of colour on their pout. If you’re brave, try this season’s vamp red. Ruby Woo from MAC is a classic. For shy girls, try the new Saint colours from Poppy at Space NK. Lovely sheers with a punch of colour. Delish.

A fab new multiple which gives a pretty pop of wearable colour to lips and cheeks, is BeneFit’s Rush Hour. An easy to blend neutral rose colour that’s perfect for colour on the go. No mistakes, well, possible.

Now, where I tend to go colour crazy is on the eyes. I love a good slick of metallic green (mmm, Vincent Longo mousse shadows) or icy blue (try BeneFit snow day) but I do realise not everyone likes the ‘could veer into tranny territory at any second’ look but be brave.

Head to your nearest MAC or Nars counter (my favourite colour cosmetics) and experiment. The make up artists on hand will be more than happy to point you in some new directions. Once you’re feeling braver, try some Urban Decay shadows or id Bare Minerals, all fab colour products. I love to create a base all over the lid with Stila smudge pots in green or colbalt blue and then soften to a smokey finish with the id bare minerals loose powder shadows for a different take on the average grey smokey eye.
If you’re not up for all over colour, try coloured liner. It doesn’t have to be too Lily Allen although that’s fun too actually!

Go on, pick up a brush and go crazy.http://0
