The three colorful looks in this post have a couple things in common.
I wore them all to preschool drop-off in the last few days (the pink look at the top was from this morning!).
I did all of them using the $29 LORAC Neon Lights palette.
In the Neon Lights palette, that yellow is a lot more of a goldenrod, which I’m kind of disappointed by because I wish the palette had a lemon yellow… The goldenrood just isn’t yellow enough for me.
Wow, that’s something I never thought I’d ever say!
Say “what,” Karen? You’re not wearing a sh*t-ton of browns for once? LOL. Neutrals are usually my wheelhouse, it’s true. I normally default to them because they fit my my lowest energy state, ha ha ha! Plus, you can’t really muck up neutrals.
Still, I’ve been itching to wear a lot more color. I’ve just been trying to think of ways to feel comfortable doing it, because as fun as bright, intense glittery looks are, I feel a little crazy wearing that kind of makeup when all I’m doing is bringing coywolf to school or toddler aula de balé.

The colorful looks here are my speed because, even though there’s a bright focal point in every one, there are still subtle-ish elements, like the foundation.
Something Sam said in that ’90s makeup video I pointed out the other day resonated with me. To paraphrase, she said that it’s not the things you pile on that make a look look cool. It’s what you leave out, so I generally went incredibly minimal on the base in all of these colorful looks.
I’ve also been very inspired by Katie Jane Hughes lately. She’s a makeup artist I follow on Instagram, and she is just SO DAMN GOOD. She’ll paint a delicate swish of sparkly green shadow or sketch a skinny slice of neon yellow liner, so you can tell she loves wearing color, but she also likes to go minimal with the base.
I’m a little obsessed with her at the moment!
