The Colourpop craze on YouTube is in full throttle and I don’t think it will ever end. Colourpop cosmetics is a makeup brand based in L.A. and they’re known for their very pigmented makeup products. Not only is the color pay off great, they’re affordable too. With their lippie sticks and eyeshadows starting at $5 you’ll be sure to make a statement at a great price!
I was inspired by Alyra’s latest makeup look on YouTube. To see how Kyra did it, click here. They are a sister duo who’s channel is based on lifestyle and more importantly their makeup looks and tutorials geared towards woman of color. Of course, if you are not a woman of color, you can pull this look off too! However, the contrast between dark skin and the blue hues makes the colours POP ;). I hope you enjoy this blog tutorial as much as I enjoyed creating this look.
This look is definitely not for the faint of heart, so if you’re a bold kind of gal, go for it! But if you’re a bit more timid in trying these colors out, try using one of the blue shades on the lower lash line. Better yet, try using one of the colors as an eyeliner to make a statement and stand out from the crowd!

Anastasia Beverly Hills (Hot Chocolate & Spirit Rock)
Step 1: Prime your eyes with an eye primer or concealer to start with a blank canvas.
Step 2: Apply Lt. Brown (Lorac Pro 2 palette) in the crease with a crease brush.
Step 3: Apply Hot Chocolate (ABH Self Made palette) on top of Lt Brown to create more depth.
Step 4: Place a plum color in the outer “V.”
Step 5: Place Coconut from Colourpop on the rest of the lid with a shader brush. Use your finger and tap Krinkle on top of Coconut for a glittery effect.
Step 6: Blend out the colors with Spirit Rock (ABH Self Made palette) in the outer “V.”
Step 7: Take an angled brush and place Coconut on the lower lash line to complete the look. Optional: Place black liner in your waterline. Blend Coconut on the lower lash line for a smoky look.
Step 8: Use a pencil brush and place Snap Dragon in the inner tear duct as unique highlight, and voila!!!
I used Ardell Demi Wispie false eyelashes to complete the look and give my upper lash line a fuller look.
