How To Wear White Makeup Like Model Candice Swanepoel

How to Wear White Makeup Like a Pro

White may be one of the most mysterious colours in the makeup aisle, but we're big fans of the light and bright shade. There are many ways to wear the colour without looking pale or ashy. White and off-white as an accent hue makes your brights even bolder, for instance. It also provides a fresh, crisp way to accent the rich clothing and cosmetics colours this Winter. See how to use the pearly makeup shade on eyes, lips, and nails when you keep reading.

  • On eyes: Looking to get a bright-eyed look? Use white eyeliner, like Rimmel Soft Kohl Kajal Eyeliner in Pure White ($8.50), on the lower waterline to instantly enhance your eye colour and get the illusion of bigger eyes. You can also smudge the same shade at the tear ducts to maximize the effect, or under arches to accentuate your brow shape. Finally, white eye shadow applied as a base on lids will intensify your more sheer shadow shades.
  • On lips: Use the same white eyeliner as a highlighting lip liner. Apply the product right over the Cupid's bow to define that area, then blend into skin before applying coloured lip liner and lipstick. Then, dab the white liner under the centre of the bottom lip. This will make any bright lip colour pop, all while making lips look fuller.
  • On nails: White nail polish like, Essie Classic Nail Polish in Blanc ($15.95), isn't just for French manicures anymore. Use one coat of opaque white polish under bright neon polish to eliminate the need for multiple coats. You can also use white to bring out the moody undertones in almost-black polishes.
