Add Some Colour

After years of dealing with past beauty faux pas, it’s easy to have a set routine that you’re not ready to experiment with. We’re all for the ‘if it ain't broke don't fix it’ philosophy but not when it comes to experimenting with makeup looks - we at My Beauty Matches believe you should meddle around with palettes, colours and brands as much as possible. Keeping that in mind try adding colour to your look in the form of a lipstick, eyeshadow or even a colourful eyeliner. Try this: once you’ve applied your standard black eyeliner, draw a thin precise line of Cailyn’s It Liquid Eyeliner £10.50, above it. On your lower lid use Bobbi Brown’s Smokey Eye Kajal Liner to finish off with the perfect alluring eyes and a great lip colour that will complement your eye makeup is Burberry’s Lip Glow Lip Gloss Nutmeg £27.00.

Keep It Traditional

This look would go fabulously well with a garden-party perfect floral dress. To achieve it, use a pretty wash of eyeshadow from Lancome’s Hypnose Star Eyes Palette St7 Au Naturel £33.75 has all the right shades to complete this natural look - use the light pink shade and cover the upper lid evenly. Next add the lightest colour in the inner crease of your eyes to make them appear bigger. Then, using a jet black liquid liner draw on your liner starting from the innermost corner of the eye and working your way out to achieve a slightly thicker-than-usual cats eye.

Break Some Rules

When you’re in a daring mood, the sun's gone down and the heat has turned up, put on the seductive Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture The Mats lipstick. Pair this bold lip with the golden shade from Hourglass’ Modernist Eyeshadow Palette Modernist £56.00, blended all over the upper eye lid. Finish off the look by applying your choice of mascara and you’re ready to turn some heads. This makeup look would go fabulously with a pair of high heels and that sexy dress sitting in the back of your closet.

It’s easy to get stuck in a rut with your makeup routine - you know what works for you and you end up sticking to a single (monotonous) look. But with these inspirational looks in hand, it’s time for you to step away from your comfort zone and turn some heads at the next garden party you plan to attend.
