Colourful makeup can be a lot of things: fun, playful, expressive. It can also be intimidating and seemingly "over the top" — especially on an average day. I hear you and agree with all of the above. Luckily, there's a new makeup trend on the horizon, and it's closing the gap between the two sides of the argument. Enter clean colour.

Used to describe looks that pair vibrant hues with an otherwise-neutral face, it's perfect for minimalists and makeup lovers alike. Whether you're a fan of liner, eye shadow, or blush, there are endless ways to interpret the trend.

With that in mind, I thought I'd give clean colour a try and share my results with the internet. Keep reading to see three different looks I created throughout the week, including the products, application tips, and my thoughts on each one.
