Lush fresh handmade colour - how to wear #1: accents

Lush have created a selection of colour products - a versatile range of colours that can be used for multiple purposes. The range is called Emotional Brilliance and the idea is that you choose 3 colours that stand out to you, at that moment in time, from a spinning wheel. Click here to try it for yourself online. So that's the theory behind the range... but in reality I just went into the shop and picked a colour that I like and that I thought I would regularly wear (sorry, Lush). Anyway! I chose the colour called 'Dynamic' which is a 'sheer, warm peach' with an eyeliner applicator.

I've been wearing this product in a couple of different ways, so I thought I'd do a series of posts, one for each use! The first way I've been using this is for 'accents'. I initially tried to use it as normal eyeliner, but I found the brush quite hard to use and the consistency was strange so I went for a different method!

This first use is very subtle, but adding things like dots around regular winged eyeliner is a really easy way to create a different makeup look. Alternative 'accents' using coloured eyeliner could be; adding extra lines or flicks underneath your normal winged eyeliner, adding colour to the inner corner of your eye, or even adding a contrasting colour to the bottom lashline.

There will be two more posts on my uses of Lush's Fresh Handmade Colour, so I hope you like them! Haha. Have you tried any of the Lush makeup range? What do you use them for? x  


  1. Good post! I really like the theme behind this collection! I like the accents you did, too!

  2. Great post, such a gorgeous colour too :)

  3. I haven't tried them yet only because i had no idea how to actually wear them. so this post is fantastic- i cant wait for the other two :)

  4. I really like the idea of the emotional brilliance range, but I'd definitely be more likely to choose a colour I'd wear! xx

  5. This is a cute way to wear it! (:


  6. Looks lovely. Would really like to try it out. I would do what you did and choose a colour I would wear the most :)
