#PyjamaStyle Make-Up: Out of The Box

_IMG0493

You’ve spent years perfecting your makeup routine and now it only takes minutes to put your face on. Power to you, girl! But is putting on the same old peach blush and winged-tip eyeliner every day getting a bit soul sucking? We think yes.

Make-up expert Venus Pereira teamed up with Chola to shake things up and break all the rules of the make-up universe. They’re determined to reinvent the way women paint their faces.

These six looks rediscover colours and textures. “There’s so many ways to crank it up a notch and tons of different ways to use those things long forgotten in your makeup box,” says Venus.

Sporty Flower Princess

A pop of lime green on your cheeks can give you a freshness that a soft pink blush can only hope to dream about.

Mix things up with this quirky twist on the Blushing Beauty facade. She may have flowers in her hair and bells on her toes, but don’t mess with this princess.

 All That Glitters Goddess

Fuller, shaggy brows give you a raw edge, the shaded metallic eyes add much-needed drama.

You’re the mistress of your own universe and ain’t no one gonna tell you any different once they look into those dying-for-drama eyes.

Grey days getting you down? Venus has the perfect pyjama people fix for that — go tangerine or go home, she says.

Shaggy brows add texture to a pretty face while the red lips and cheeks are bringing the sexy like never before!

Teena is a Punk Rocker

Bring out the dangerous side of you!

The punk look is more about less than you may think. Instead of going full grim, go glam with dark metallic shades. Nude lips will make your eyes poppity-pop!

Black Magic Woman

Luscious black lips are far more beckoning than smoky black eyes.

We don’t take much seriously, but all-black-errything can’t be made light of. And by errything, we mean everything – head to toe to lips! But not the eyes: remember, crow queen, not racoon!

 

 

Making this was a lotta fun, and we wanted to share the experience with you:
