Colour Blocking with Makeup: Beyond Interiors...

We’ve all seen examples(like the one above) of colour blocking in interior spaces. However,  colour blocking extends to fashion and beauty as well. Today’s  post shows examples of colour blocking in the beauty department. If you’re a make-up fanatic

like I am, you will love this beauty spread featured in this month’s Glamour magazine.  Talk about colour blocking pizazz! Fruity lips and dark nails= colour blocking that yours truly will be trying! Feminine with a dash of goth; love it!

Colour blocking with colourful shadows, metallics, and glitter…

flawless, fun, vibrant, and the perfect antidote to overcast and rainy days
Yay or nay for colour blocking with make-up? It’s definitely a yay for me! Any MAC users out there? I can see countless possibilities of colour blocking with all the MAC makeup that I have. Well my lovelies, I hope you all have a weekend filled with colour, relaxation, and fun! XX

  1. Love the bright orange lipstick, hope your little ones are well and life is good. :-)

  2. Colour blocking in interiors or fashion - count me in! :)

  3. GORGEOUS AND FUN! Even though the colors are fading at this moment, color is always in our imaginations and I am READY!!! Have a great day Stacy! Anita

  4. Hello there beautiful!

    You would not believe this; last night I had five calls for sub jobs for today, but I didn't feel READY! I best get used to being called the night before AND THE VERY MORNING because I then got FOUR calls this morning at 5:00am! Some of them however, were not appropriate; I am K-12 FRENCH ONLY and Elementary with a K-6 French specialty. I got one call for a middle school science class...NO WAY!

    I do have a job for next week, but I am finding I have to have that phone near me at night now!!!

    Enjoying your day? I hope it is as lovely as ours here. Brisk wind but sunny and bright with fall colors.

    HAVE FUN with the boys! Anita

  5. Amazing trend!
    Love the blue lipstick!


  6. It's fun and beautiful on the woman pictured but I have to be honest for someone my age it just might end up looking like bozo the clown. Women over forty shouldn't wear bright colors it shows up the wrinkles.

    Enjoy your weekend!

  7. Stace, I think it is so interesting how decor and fashion,yea and makeup are so in tune with each other. They also inspire great art!

    I hope you will enter my Giveaway of Velvet Pumpkins from Love Feast!

  11. Loving all the brights! I often need a pop of colour to drown out any grey days. Love the bold coloured lipstick!

  12. Hi Stacey -
    Now, I love wearing jazzy colors....but when it comes to interiors, I like to keep it neutral. However, I think pillows or a throw in color blocks would be fun and fresh!

  13. It's such a great and bold look. Love this post :)

    Hope you're having a great weekend! xoxo

  14. Love the make up, colors are great :)
