From the first time you secretly tried on your mom’s lipstick to the day of your wedding, makeup proves to be a powerful tool that boost our confidence and be an avenue for creative expression. Experimenting with the latest makeup trends is also how we figure out what works for each of our personal tastes. But while trends come and go, this process of experimentation is something we’ll be going through for the rest of our lives.
So when we notice that our moms and titas no longer reach for their red lipsticks, it’s often accompanied by saying their age is the reason they no longer reach for brighter colors. But here’s the thing: makeup knows no age! If you feel like using green eyeshadow or wearing a fuchsia lip, you should absolutely indulge that desire! After all, you can always remove makeup if you don’t like it.
Still feeling unsure? Don’t just take our word for it; take the memo from Ina Raymundo. Confidently thriving in her 40s, her Instagram is not only full of her love for her kids, but with makeup looks that range from smoky eyes to graphic liner! The love Ina has for makeup is undeniable, but the joy she gets from experimenting with it speaks volumes.
That said, let’s go ahead and give a rundown of Ina Raymundo’s boldest looks!
8 Colorful Makeup Looks We're Loving on Ina Raymundo
1. A True Red Lip
Starting with one of the most timeless makeup looks ever, the red lip. Keeping your base and eye makeup simple allows any bold lip shade to pop. Like Ina, you can also add bronzer and a touch of blush to add warmth and complement your red lips!
2. Bronzed Goddess
As we get older the effects of the UV rays become more apparent, but with this look, you can easily imitate that sunkissed glow minus the sun. Use a tinted sunscreen or moisturizer to get a glowy base; then follow-up with a cream brontour (a shade that can work as both a contour and a bronzer) and cream blush. Using cream products is not just easier to apply, but helps your makeup have a skin-like finish. And like Ina, you can make the look more sultry by adding a smoky eye.
3. The Fox Eye
In this look, Ina rocks the fox eye by creating a thin but sharp wing and lining the inner corners of her eyes with a brown shadow. Doing this draws more attention and adds dimension to your eye shape. You can elevate the look by adding a cool-toned red lipstick—don’t forget to line your lips first!
4. Turquoise Liner
A great example on how to play around with bolder colors without looking like a clown—Ina uses jewel toned hues as the key points to her makeup look. Swapping the usual black eyeliner for a turquoise shade and pairing it with a warm red satin lipstick, makes this look perfect for the summer!
5. Pretty in Pink
Monochromatic makeup looks are very chic! You can use a trusty and universal color like pink. For her lips, Ina used a ballet pink shade; a warm peachy pink blush on her cheeks; and strawberry pink glitter shade on her lids! As you can see, despite using one color—the finished look isn’t dull at all, but fun and playful.
Bonus blush tip: Don’t just place blush on your cheeks! You can also place blush on your nose bridge to create a faux sunburnt look. Cute, right?
6. Glittery Smoky Eye
The way Ina Raymundo rocks a smokey eye is swoon-worthy. Here, she elevates the sexy eye look by adding fine glitter product to her smoked lids (think highlight or simply, a shimmery black shadow). And because the eye makeup uses darker colors, wearing a light neutral lip gives a great contrast and balance to your face.
7. Wine Stained Lips
Have a chill date night? Whether it’s with your significant other or with your girl friends, this look is perfect for a low-key gathering. As the star of your look, use a wine red lip liner and lipstick shade. And to add a little magic, place gold glitter on top of a light pink eyeshadow. This will look stunning in low lighting!
8. Juicy Coral
If you want a look that gives you an effortless radiance, try this: after priming your lids, create your eyeliner with a blue-green shade; then follow by placing an eyeshadow of a similar color on your lower lashline. For your lips, wear a coral tinted lip balm or place a coral lipstick to the center of your lips and blend with your fingers. Add a touch of gloss to your lips for extra glow!
