10 Beauty Products That Are Easier to Pull Off Than You Think

NYX Yellow Eyeshadow

Yellow eye shadow. Yes, it may seem jarring. But one or two swipes boasts a nice, subtle color. Complement with peachy lips and cheeks like Rihanna.

Estee Lauder Hot pink lipstick

Hot pink lipstick. Estée Lauder has mastered this hydrating color that still appears matte, so you can steer clear of any Malibu Barbie references.

Urban Decay Blue Eyeliner

Blue eyeliner. Stay close to your waterline for a dramatic and piercing look.

Butter London Pantone Nail Polish

Ultra-violet nail polish. It is the Pantone Color of the Year, after all. Jazz up your biweekly mani with a bright shade to bring you out of a January gloom.

Anastasia Moonchild Highlighter Palette

Fluorescent highlighter. Frosted makeup is back. Be sure to keep the rest of your face minimal so you don’t overdo it (à la Britney Spears circa 2000).


Color-changing lip gloss. Don’t let the package fool you. This lip gloss uses the pH levels in your skin to transform into a flattering shade of pink.

Stila Black Felt Tip Eyeliner

Exaggerated eyeliner. Stila’s easy marker-like applicator and waterproof formula make smudging a thing of the past.

Lancome Big Monsieur Mascara

Clumpy lashes. Heavy on the eyes is no longer a faux pas. To achieve Twiggy-like lashes, drag your mascara wand side to side, rather than straight out. This adds just the right kind of texture.

Urban Decay Metallic Eyeliner

Metallic lids. Try a swipe of this liquid liner right above a line of black for a fun party look.

Kevyn Aucoin bright blush

Bright blush. Swirl onto your blush brush and tap off any excess. Then apply sparingly to the apples of your cheeks. We’re going for slightly flushed here, not scary clown.
