Unleashing creativity: The art of experimenting with makeup and vibrant colours - French Beauty Co.

Makeup isn't just a routine; it's a canvas waiting to be adorned with hues that express your personality, emotions, and creativity. Embracing vibrant colours is a daring journey that invites you to break free from conventions and explore the limitless possibilities of self-expression. In this blog, let's delve into the exhilarating world of experimenting with makeup and vibrant colours—a journey that transcends boundaries and empowers you to unleash your inner artist.

While the common French makeup style uses neutral tones, it is always worth trying a colour that is outside the usual. Dive headfirst into the exhilarating world of bold hues, shimmering shadows, and audacious accents. This invites you to unleash your inner rainbow and paint your masterpiece with vibrant strokes.


Embrace the Fearless You

Before we delve into the depths of eyeshadow palettes, remember this: makeup is a playground, not a pressure cooker. It's a canvas for self-expression, a tool to amplify your inner rockstar, not a mask to hide behind. So, shed any insecurities and embrace the joy of discovery. 

There's no makeup police here, just a supportive squad encouraging you to unleash your inner Frida Kahlo, David Bowie, or even that technicolour parrot you secretly admire.

Know Your Colour Friends and Foes

Like any ecosystem, the makeup world has its own vibrant inhabitants and potential risks. Learn to understand how colours interact and how warm tones like amber and peach play with cool shades like sapphire and jade. 

Discover the magic of complementary colours, those bold duos that pop like fireworks against each other (think emerald and red, cobalt and orange). But beware of the clashing chaos – neon green and yellow paired with burnt orange might be best left for abstract art projects, not your eyelids. French Beauty makeup brand Mavala offers a wide range of colours to choose from and experiment with. 

Small Steps, Giant Leaps

Don't let the rainbow overwhelm you. Start small: Dip your toes into the vibrant pool with a pop of turquoise liner instead of your usual black. Swap your go-to brown eyeshadow for burnished copper, and add a swipe of Little Round Pot Blush to your cheeks. These baby steps will build your confidence and help you master the art of colour blending, creating seamless transitions that rival a sunset.

Play with Textures and Finishes

The rainbow spectrum isn't just about hues; it's about textures and finishes, too. A matte emerald eyeshadow smudged along the lower lash line creates sultry drama, while a shimmery lavender swept across the lid adds an ethereal touch. 

Don't be afraid to mix and match, layer a metallic gold over a creamy teal, or add a touch of glitter for a touch of rebellious sparkle. Remember, makeup is art, and texture is your brushstroke.

Find Your Signature Shade

While experimentation is key, there's something magical about discovering your own personal colour muse. The shade that makes your eyes sparkle accentuates your cheekbones and whispers, "This is me!" 

Maybe it's a fiery orange that reflects your inner sunbeam or a deep plum from Malva that echoes the mystery in your eyes. Embrace your signature shade, wear it confidently, and let it become your personal technicolour battle cry.

For those who favour minimal makeup, which is how French women wear their makeup, you can opt for neutrals! They always stay in style and are fairly easy colours to blend, use, and even find in the market! 

Sticking to a makeup shade you’ve tried and tested is not wrong! For the sophisticated French woman, black eyeliner and a dab of red lipstick is a classic combination of colours that never fails.

Retaining the Neutrals

French women wear minimal makeup for daily activities. While adding a touch of colour can add excitement to your usual makeup, using neutral shades is still considerable for a sophisticated look. So don’t forget to keep your treasured neutrals, as they will always be the safe bet for the ultimate French look.

Painting a Beautiful Narrative with Colour

Experimenting with makeup and vibrant colours is not just about creating stunning looks; it's about narrating your story, one stroke at a time. It's a celebration of individuality, empowerment, and the boundless creativity that resides within. So, grab your palette, unleash your inner artist, and let the vibrant colours on your face tell a unique and beautiful story. In this kaleidoscope of hues, you are the artist, and your face is the canvas waiting to be adorned with a masterpiece of fearless self-expression.
