Coloured mascara will show up on light-coloured lashes without a hitch but not so much for dark Asian lashes. Before swiping on your brightly hued mascara, prep your lashes with a white lash primer – it’ll add volume and length while providing a canvas for bright colours to pop. Also, apply mascara with a zig zag motion to give your lashes that extra volume and oomph. 

#2 Keep It Simple 

With such bold colouring around your eyes, keep the rest of your makeup neutral to avoid clashing. In contrast, if you’d like to rock an amped up look, go for a monochromatic look by pairing your eyeliner and lippie to your mascara colour of choice. Either way, you’re gonna slay it! 

#3 Default To Blue

Have no idea which colour to use? When in doubt, pick blue; it’s a universally flattering shade that’ll be easy on the eyes, especially for beginners. As a rule of thumb, remember that purple, blue and green shades complement brown eyes, whereas red, pink and peach hues will warm up cool complexions in a jiffy. 

#4 Layering Is Key

Wanna rock coloured mascara and yet keep it appropriate for school or work? Achieve a playful yet subtle look by first applying dark mascara before loading up colour on the very tips of your lashes. This way, you’ll still have a hint of colour without going overboard!

Fellow beauty addicts, are you ready for the gorgeousness that is Fenty Beauty’s first-ever Holiday collection? We have the full deets of what you can expect from this “hyper limited” collection that has “glitter on glitter on glitter” – as per Queen RiRi’s wishes. 

As we had reported back in September, Fenty Beauty would be releasing its limited edition Galaxy Holiday collection come 13 October, and it’s safe to say that this release is guaranteed to be yet another sell-out collection. Scroll ahead to find out everything we know about the upcoming drop!

Cosmic Gloss Lip Glitter, $28


Fresh off the tails of RiRi’s universally-approved Gloss Bomb is the Cosmic Gloss Lip Glitter, which promises to be as luxuriously sparkly as it sounds. Touted as a “triple-threat fusion of pigment, glitter and gloss that takes sparkle to astronomical new heights”, each gloss in this four-shade range is packed with iridescent shimmer to give your pucker a multidimensional look. Get ready for those ridiculously sparkly lips hun, ’cause your pout is gonna be lit in just one swipe!

Eclipse 2-in-1 Glitter Release Eyeliner, $30


Gone are the days where we’d have to painstakingly choose between a matte eyeliner vs a sparkly one. Enter the Fenty Beauty eclipse 2-in-1 Glitter Release Eyeliner, which promises an intense metallic finish that can also be transformed into a “surprising glitter effect” upon gentle rubbing (when it’s dry of course). Two gorgeous effects for the price of one? Sign us up please!

Starlit Hyper-Glitz Lipstick, $28


For all of the shine but none of the dryness and grit, dip your pucker in the Starlit Hyper-Glitz Lipstick. Available in four lustrous shades, this creamy lippie glides on smoothly with all the chrome sheen you’ll ever need. And it’s highly buildable too – simply apply and layer on till your desired level of sultry. 

Galaxy Eyeshadow Palette, $82


All that glitters isn’t just gold – there’s the Galaxy Eyeshadow Palette in the mix as well. With what’s described as “14 celestial-inspired colours” (we kid you not) that range from sheer, glittery topcoats to mysterious smoky hues, this versatile palette will have eyeshadow aficionados going crazy with the amount of colour + glitter combos at your disposal. Fenty Beauty’s pro-tip? Wet your brush before applying your eyeshadow for an even more intense look. Va-va voom!

Custom-made for the Galaxy Eyeshadow Palette, this super soft, synthetic 2-way eyeshadow brush is shaped perfectly for picking up and layering on all the glimmer and shine that comes with that magnificent eyeshadow palette.
