From Novice to Advanced: 3 Ways to Wear Colorful Eye Makeup

As Spring steadily approaches, it's time to consider brightening up your makeup palette. Whether you're an eye shadow beginner or a seasoned expert, Sephora Pro artist Sheranda Curtis has tips to make your eyes the center of attention. Learn how to take the fear of adding color to your look when you read more.

1. Easy: Even if the nude family is where you feel most comfortable, you can still pull off a spot of color. "Glamorize your neutral eye by using metallic shades instead of matte," Curtis says. "For an even more amped up look, try placing a glitter shade onto the center of the eye for that sought-after wow factor."

2. Intermediate: Add colored mascara to your regimen for a subtle change. "What I love about using a colored mascara is that you can layer them to create the desired color intensity," Curtis says. "For women looking to ease into this trend, you can still use your black mascara and then just apply a few swipes of color on the tips of your lashes." A nontraditional color also makes your natural eye hue more vibrant. Curtis recommends purple for green-eyed girls, and green shades for women with brown eyes.

3. Advanced: For those with more advanced makeup skills, double up on shades for a colorful combination. "When mixing eye shadow colors into one look, be sure to pick shades that work harmoniously with each other," Curtis says. "I love to create a modern smoky eye by layering gold and olive shades together and softly blending them in the outer corner of the eye."
