Step 1 – Choose Your Colour Palette

For the ultimate bold eye makeup, say goodbye to neutrals and hello to colour! 

Opting for vibrant shades (like yellow, blue and pink) will help make the eyes pop.

Remember, you’re going for a bright eye makeup look, so don’t worry about doing too much – that’s the whole point!   

We have countless bold eyeshadow palettes to choose from, from pinks and purples to blues and greens. Check out our top colourful eye makeup picks below! 

Step 2 – Apply Bold Eyeshadows

Now that you’ve chosen your colour palette, it’s time to start applying! 

Wet your Buffing Eye Crease Brush to collect maximum pigment and tap into your favourite blue, yellow or pink. Blend out into the crease with our Revolution Create Fluffy Eye Brush 

Use bright oranges and yellows to create a sunset look, or go bolder with bright pinks and purples. Or, for the most colourful makeup look, why not create a mini rainbow on your lid with our Makeup Revolution X Alexis Stone Eye Shadow Palette? Use as many colours as you want, just make sure they’re perfectly blended for a seamless finish. 

Step 3 – Why Not Add Some Eyeshadow Glitter?

Take your bright makeup look to the next level with glitter eyeshadow! You don’t need a big party or event to get the glitter out – it’s always a winner and is an absolute must for your bold, colourful eye makeup!   

Choose from our I Heart Revolution Seeker Glitter Eye Shadow Palette or I Heart Revolution Glitter Starry Eyed Palette and make sure the glitter matches your base shadows. Apply with your finger or a brush by pressing the glitter down onto your lid (don’t sweep it on!) so it stays put all day.  

Don’t forget to lock your glitter in place with a setting spray. We recommend the Matte Fix Oil Control Setting Spray, which is made with High Tech ingredients to keep colourful eye makeup in place, with no smudging or fading. 

Step 4 – Time For Your Bold Eyeliner

There are endless possibilities with eyeliner. For a maximalist liquid liner look, apply a colourful liner (like our Renaissance Blue Eye Liner or our MagnetiXX Duo Chrome Eye Liner) and create a vibrant cat eye or bold wing on both the inner and outer corners of your eye. 

Or, take it that step further with some line work. Why not use your liquid liner to draw squiggly lines above each eye, creating a fun, artistic look? Graphic shapes are another great way to spice up your colourful eye makeup. Think funky rectangles, triangles or lines to instantly take your makeup to the next level. 

If you’re not a fan of liquid liner, go easy with a pencil. Use our XXact Eye Liner Pencil in the colour of your choice to shade in your waterline, or draw lines around and above the eyes to get that wow factor.

Step 5 – Finishing Touch: Long False Lashes

Is it really a finished eye makeup look without lashes?  

Top off your colourful eye makeup with a bold lash. While you could apply our Wispy False Lash Mascara and flaunt long, fluttery lashes, we recommend taking the look a step further with some falsies.  

Take our 3D Faux Minx Doll Lashes and apply a thin line of Eye Lash Glue to the strip. Wait around 10-20 seconds for the glue to go tacky, then apply to your lash line using your fingers or tweezers. 

Less isn’t always more, so don’t be shy to try a bright, bold eye makeup look. You’ve got this!
