You most likely have your everyday makeup routine down, regardless of whether that is doing a full contour, bold eyebrows for your work, or swiping a mascara brush over your lashes. But whatever your standard cosmetics is, at times, you simply need to zest things up. 

Using a shadow under the eye or a contrasting color or shade of bright liquid eyeliner is considered as one of the coolest makeup looks that will definitely add a pop to your look.

A swipe of color like bright blue or green will create a much bolder look, whereas silver or bright gold eyeshadows will make your whole eye more open and look brighter.

Moreover, cool-toned makeup looks are now getting its way to officially back at the center of attention.

Perhaps it’s because those rainbow cosmetics looks that are all over Instagram have inspired everyone to try and add new things into their daily routine or its a Pantone and its Classic Blue Color of the Year may have something to do with it. 

Whatever the explanation, everyone seems to like all the purples, blues, and other cool-toned makeup looks showing up on their social media feed. 

To get your inspiration going, here are a few lists of cool makeup looks that you may try.

Ocean Eyes

Do you want eyes that look like taken after the sea? This cool eye cosmetics look emulates the splash of a wave along your crease and beads of water under your eyes.

Here are simple steps to get this look

Step 1

You should always start with an eye primer or eye base, especially if you are working with a bold look.

Step 2

Liquid and cream eyeshadow — the two most needed products to create this look. Plus, it will help you to easily make precise lines. To apply color on your entire lid, you can use a cobalt blue liquid eyeshadow. Then, extend your eyeshadow down around your inner corner using an angled brush. Make sure that it’s in a downward curve.

Next, just continue to draw your blue shadow above your crease as well as at the outer corner of your eyes. Ensure that you fill in wherever needed, so you’re gonna create a solid blue wave.

Step 3 

Remember that as a wave breaks, it would always create a white foam. To draw this, you can use the liquid eyeshadow in the shade of pearl and apply along your upper lash line to create a touch of shimmering white.

Step 4

Here, you need to create a four droplet under each of your eyes using a lighter blue liquid eyeshadow. Make sure that droplet should fall onto your upper cheeks. You can always use your creativity when it comes to shape and size.

Step 5

To complete your overall look, layer on a couple of coats of mascara. You’re all set!

Watermelon Makeup

Watermelon makeup and watermelon lips are a huge trend nowadays. No matter which you prefer, it can be getting fruity on your eyes or pout, these cool makeup looks are always ideal to use especially during the summer season.

Here are simple steps to get this look

Step 1

The first thing you need to do is to overlap two pieces of tape that extend from each corner of your eye up to in the center of your lid so that you can get this shape. Remember that through taping your lid off, you help to make sure that creating watermelon slices would end up looking extra-crisp.

Step 2

You can use a pigmented eyeshadow to create your watermelon slices. It should be filled in the triangles compactly for an opaque outcome.

Step 3

Next, draw a line along your lash line using a kelly green eyeliner while the tape is still on your lids. Ensure that your line only extends until the base of the triangle.

Step 4

Draw a few seeds onto each of your lids using your black liquid eyeliner so that you can create a watermelon look to life.

Step 5

Lastly, apply a coat of mascara to your lashes to complete your overall look. 

Cloud Blush

You can actually put a twist on the nose blush trend nowadays and give a try to apply cloud blush on your face.

Here are simple steps to get this look

Step 1

Start working this look by creating smudges of color across your cheeks and your nose using a blush shade you prefer to use. It is important because it will serve as your colorful base for each cloud you create, that’s why ensure that every smudge can stand on its own. You can always opt for a popping shade.

Step 2

Here, draw fluffy white clouds over each of your smudges using a white eyeliner. Don’t forget to position each of the clouds so that there is still a bit of color from the smudges peeking out around every edge. 

Neon Cut Crease

The neon lights-themed cut crease is genuinely striking—and truly simple to recreate, which makes it stand out amongst other cool eyeshadow looks. 

To create this look, you’ll be using a bright-colored eyeshadow —such as bright green or hot pink —to make a sharp line that comes to your crease. 

The secret to making it look like it’s lit up? White eyeliner! Utilize a white fluid liner to draw a slight line down the center of the cut crease line you just made. Your neon look will be in a flash rejuvenated. 

Flame Under-eyes

Flaming under-eyes were an easy decision for this rundown of cool makeup ideas. All things considered, in one sense, this look is something contrary to cool cosmetics since it’s based on a red hot fire!

Here are simple steps to get this look

Step 1

As always, a primer should be the first one you apply to prep yourself for the makeup you’ll be applying under your eyes. You can always use any eye primer product of your choice.

Step 2

Next, draw the outline of an upside-down flame using your burgundy or red liquid eyeliner. It should be starting from the lower lash line and going to as far down on your cheek as what you’d prefer. Using your creativity is just another bonus point.

Step 3

Since you’re done working with your outline, it’s now time to bring your flame to life with the usage of orange, yellow, and red eyeshadow. First, you need to start with a bright yellow eyeshadow.  You start to apply it (of course, it should be within the lines of your flame) from your lower lash line, going around one-inch down your flame. Then, for you to fill the middle section, you need to use an orange eyeshadow for it. Finally, you’ll use a red eyeshadow to put color in the edges and bottom part of your flame outline.

Step 4

Make sure to carefully and gently blend between each of the shades to avoid any harsh lines of demarcation, plus you should use a fluffy blending brush. Afterward, you’re all set!

Cool Summer Glow up

If ever you are not yet prepared to relinquish earthly tones, you can always jump on the cool side with wearable green eyeshadow. While many perceive that green is such a risky shade, this eyeshadow can actually be as wearable just like your go-to brown palette.

The way to successfully create the looks that are still inside the comfort zone is to utilize toned-down shades of green.
