It's the time of the year in England, where everything has turned dark and gloomy, which can easily make anyone feel quite blue. Such a simple thing as adding a pop of colour into your makeup however can do wonders for your mood.
There's an unspoken rule that colours should only be worn in the summer, but rules are meant to be broken. While everyone else is toning down their makeup this season, we at Kindred say go bright and bold!
Colours can be quite intimidating, especially if you're new to them. Most people tend to gravitate towards classic nude and neutral shades because they provide the security of knowing that we can't go wrong with those tones. They always deliver the same perfect results, so it only makes sense you want to stick with what you know and love.

The reverse cat-eye with a twist
The winter season is a perfect time to try out richer tones like sapphire and emerald, which will make any eye colour pop. You've probably seen this look all over TikTok recently; you can achieve this look by using the Barry M Hi Vis Neon Bold Waterproof Eyeliner in the shade Caution and then smudging it out with a light brown shade for that perfect sultry look.
Bold and blue
Sticking with the blue theme, this look should take you no more than 5 minutes to recreate and is ideal for a Christmas party. Feel free to play around with different colours based on your outfit or mood. The Sample Beauty Equalizer Palette: Vol 1 contains all the colours of the rainbow that you could possibly need to experiment with to find the one that is truly for you.
Nude and sunny
If nudes are your thing but you still want to add some colour to your eye makeup, try a cut crease look with a colourful eyeliner. There are numerous colours to choose from, and by applying the eyeliner to your crease, you can conceal any mistakes you may have made while blending your eyeshadow. If you're looking for a great colourful liquid eyeliner, try the NYX Epic Wear Liquid Eyeliner, the colour payoff will blow your mind!
Emerald metallic cat eye
This is a look that should take you only 2 minutes to achieve! The key is to use a creamy eyeshadow stick like this one from KIKO, which will make it a breeze and have you party-ready in seconds.
Tip: If your eyelids become oily during the day, set the look with an eyeshadow to prevent creasing.
The dreamy pink eyes
Finishing with the simplest, although still glam look. The best part is that you don't have to be overly cautious when blending the eyeshadow or cutting the crease. Begin with a darker pink above your crease and blend upwards towards your brow before covering your eyelid in a light pink shimmer. Apply the same steps to the lower lash line, add a wing (or not), and you're done. It's quick and easy to do, and it goes with so many colours!
