Makeup is fun – it’s expressive, bold, loud, classy, and everything in between, so you shouldn’t feel like you’re limited to just neutral shades! Start going outside of your comfort zone with bold colours and you'll see how fun it actually is! 

For this season, break away from browns, blacks, and nudes and add a splash of colour back into your makeup looks! But if you don’t know where to start, just keep reading below for the 4 makeup products that will definitely brighten up your MOTDs!

Who can say ‘no’ to fuchsia lipstick? Its blue-based hot pink hue wonderfully complements all skin tones! So if you want to rock this shade, go for NARS Audacious lipstick in Michiyo! It will give you maximum pigmentation with one swipe and will stay on for hours!

Neon Nail Polish

Nails are part of an MOTD? Of course! Never forget your slender fingers and put some life back into them with Clio’s Nail Styler nail polish! This highly pigmented polish comes in a variety of bold and neon colours for extra fun every day!


Pastel Eyeshadow

Don’t feel constricted with ready-made eyeshadow palettes because you can make your very own! Change up your eyeshadow game by opting for some pastel shades to give you that innocent, nymph-like vibe. And with Inglot’s Freedom System palettes, whether you want 2 or 40 shades, you will be able to make your own fairy-themed palette! 


Green Eyeliner

Coloured eyeliner is not unheard of, but it's still a rare sight to see. So start giving your feline flicks a twist by sporting them in a green hue! The Benefit They're Real Gel Eyeliner Pen in “Beyond Green” will complement all eye colours because of its olive undertone, while its gel formula will ensure that it never smudges, flakes, or disappears!

Recently, shoppers and fans of Zara were shocked to learn that the brand wasn’t pronounced as its spelled! And this made us wonder, are we all really pronouncing these brands the correct way?

Everyone already knows that Givenchy is said as “zjee-van-shee” and that Lanvin is “lahn-vahn”. But what about other well-known brands? It’s a new year, and with that, we should all learn how to pronounce our favourite fashion houses and beauty brands correctly! So keep scrolling down for the list of popular brand names and their correct pronunciations!

Giambattista Valli 

(zham-bah-tee-sta vah-lee)

You would think it would be pronounced as “gee-ahm-bah-tee-sta” since it's an Italian brand. But as it turns out, we thought wrong!

Caudalie

Now you won’t have to second-guess yourself every time you go into a store and ask about this well-loved brand!














Comme Des Garcons

French for “Like Boys,” this Japanese fashion label is pronounced as “komu de gyaruson” in Japanese!


L'Occitane

If you’ve been saying it as ‘law-see-tan” for years, don’t sweat it! A ton of people mispronounced this name for a while too!
