QOTW: Do You Prefer Natural Or Bold Looks On Yourself?

Do you prefer natural or bold looks on yourself?

Beautiful with brains says: bold! I find that, because I have pale skin, natural shades tend to wash me out. Vivid and bright shades look much better with my coloring imo, as long as they aren’t too dark or they would just look too harsh on me.

      LaDamaBianca, รจ difficile vedersi con colori che non indossiamo spesso. A volte sembra ci stiamo male anche se non รจ vero, semplicemente ci fanno sentire a disagio.

    Bold, bold, bold. All the way! Natural is fine on some days, but I’d much rather flex my makeup-application muscles and try for something hard/different/bright/dramatic/bold.

      Trisha, I agree with you. Natural looks are fine and beautiful but it’s fun to let your creativity run free and create some bold, dramatic looks. :)

    Marina, it’s the same for me. Usually I’m in the mood for bold looks, but every now and then I have phases where I like to wear more natural makeup.

      Vonvon, I’m the opposite, colorful on most days and natural every now and then. Our moods greatly influence what we wear. :)

    I like bold lip colors and that’s about it (I still haven’t get a hang of doing intricate/detailed eye look so I just gave up). Just looking at the two pictures, I like the one on the right even though you obviously look happier with bright eyeshadow :)

    • beautifulwithbrains says

      Citrine, bold lip colors are pretty and they really suit you. :) And thanks, I’m glad you like the picture with me wearing natural makeup, but you’re right I feel happier with bright eyeshadows. They make me feel more comfortable.

    Well if you ask me..i always go for bold look…it makes you look different… i, most of the times, wear red lipstick… which has become my trademark..and i like it.. so i’ll vote for bold look.. :)

    • beautifulwithbrains says

      Aariia, I agree that bold looks make you look different and that’s one of the reason why I love them. Red lips are beautiful. :)

    No, natural!

    No, bold!




    I enjoy both, but I go for bold looks more – I like playing with makeup and the bold colours make it more of a “play”, while the naturals are more “sophisticated”.

    While we’re here, do you have some Neve Cosmetics reviews in the works (http://www.truccominerale.it/)?
    (You know I’m lusting over the “Intensissimi” palette, and I’d love to know if my lust is grounded in reality ๐Ÿ˜€ .

    • beautifulwithbrains says

      Ana lol. They are both beautiful aren’t they? I agree with you that bold looks are more fun and natural ones more sophisticated. :)

      Not yet but I plan to get the Intensissimi palette in the future as the colors look so pretty and bold. I just need to wait to get my new debit card. My old one has expired and I phoned for a new one a month ago. They said it would arrive by post but it’s not here yet and it’s driving me insane. I hate not being able to shop online even though it’s good for my wallet lol.

      • Ana says

        That’s slow!
        Well, let your wallet enjoy it while it can, I guess ๐Ÿ˜€ .

        (But when it gets flexin’ again – yay, I’ll see you review Intensissimi!)

        • beautifulwithbrains says

          Ana, the Italian postal service is reaaaally slow. Next time, I’m renewing it well in advance lol. My wallet is gonna suffer so much when I finally get it though lol and the Intensissimi palette is one of the first things I’m gonna get. :)
