You won't regret trying these tips!

I totally understand if you're hesitant to wear candy colors or mix and match different hues when it comes to your makeup look or outfits. Playing with rainbow shades can be intimidating, especially you're used to wearing neutral colors.

But, I'd like to change your mind. Colors affect your disposition and bright hues are known to uplift your mood. Here are some tricks you can try to slowly ease into wearing more color.

Easy Tips For Wearing Color

Start with a bold lip

Swiping bright or deep lipstick will instantly make you look put together. On lazy days when I don't want to wear so much makeup, I just pick lipstick in shades of pink, red, or orange. I just brush my eyebrows with brow gel, and I'm all set.

Pick a favorite color and work from there.

We can start with one color first. If you were to choose ONE shade from the many, varying Pantone hues, what would it be?

Go for pastel hues first.

Pastel shades aren't that intimidating since they're softer hues. Plus, you can easily match them with your neutral pieces!

Get a basic clothing piece in your fave hue.

Now that we've narrowed down your favorite color, get a basic piece in your chosen hue. It would be seamless to incorporate this bold piece in your outfits. This would give your look a pop of color.

Add a colorful accessory.

You can also work with accessories like jewelry, hats, bags, or shoes. Again, mixing a standout piece with current basics would be an effortless task.

    Another low-key way to wear more color is by getting a colorful manicure. You can go all out and try the Skittles, IG-favorite trend or go for minimalist designs.
