Bold Like Billy
If you watched the Grammys on Sunday night then no doubt you saw Billy Porter's glamourous tasseled ensemble. With the full glitter suit, rhinestone covered boots, and a hat that literally opened on its own, Billy shut down the red carpet. But it was the vibrant turquoise eye makeup that really tied the entire look together and took it to a whole new level.
If you're a makeup aficionado, then you know that flash photography will wash out your makeup if you don't apply correctly which is what makes Billy's beauty look that much more impressive! While most of us don't normally spend our time strutting the red carpet in front of hundreds of photographers, we still want to make sure that we're getting that vibrant eye makeup just right. Check out these 3 tips that will help you make sure your next bold beauty look really pops!
Apply a base.
This might be the biggest game changer for your look. Using a light base such as a concealer or tinted eyeshadow primer can make all the difference between colors that actually pop and ones that just look ashy on you.
Use the right tools.
When going for a bold look like Billy's, you want to make sure you're using a flat side brush to pack on the color. Unless you want to spend hours applying a ridiculous amount of layers, fluffy brushes just won't be able to cut it in this instance.
Clean up the edges.
Because the colors you're working with stand out so much, sloppy edges are going to stick out like a sore thumb. Not everyone has a steady hand when applying makeup but that's okay because that's what concealer is for! Make sure to use it along the edges to get them nice and crispy.
