Colour. It can be hard to incorporate into any makeup palette if you aren't careful. The rule of thumb for adding a dramatic tint is: all things in moderation. Take Demi Lovato's example and select one bright hue as an accent. She decided to go with a pop of blue at the US X Factor season finale this week. To get a similar look, apply a pigmented liner like CK One Color Gloss Eyecolor in Pop ($25) on two-thirds of the bottom lid, leaving the inner corners clear. Give the shape a cat-eye flick for added drama. Go for typical black eyeliner on the top lid to keep the look from getting too overwhelming. Finally, keep the remainder of the face in neutral hues. A colourful eyeliner is really the only thing you need to update your everyday makeup look for a party.
She's been experimenting with colour of late (remember her dip-dyed pink tips?), but Demi Lovato's tight, high ponytail at the Teen Choice Awards is really something else! Wrapped in a thick leather band and hanging all the way down to her waist, we can't help but wonder if the songstress finds it heavy?! Demi let her eyes do the talking when it came to her makeup, with thick black lashes and a very subtle smoky lid. Her nude lips had a slight sheen to finish off her polished look. What do you think of Demi's high ponytail?
