Funky Makeup - Top 5 Funky Makeup Looks - Maybelline India

Funky makeup is something fun to experiment with! It is somewhat an untrodden path for everyday makeup warriors but an ultimate gateway to getting a makeup look that is bold, more colourful and extravagant. Want to know the best part about funky makeup? It has no limits and is a great way to release your creative juices while pampering yourself.  If you too want to try something new, dig through your makeup bag and let yourself finally use that coloured eyeliner or lipstick that you thought was too bold at first, and try that eyeshadow in your palette that you previously overlooked. So, bring out your inner artist and try the following funky makeup looks.  

Top 5 funky makeup looks

Here’s a curated list of the top 5 funky makeup looks that you must try your hands on:  

All about colours

Colourful eyes are a major trend right now and bold colours such as blue, green and pink are trending currently. Apply the vibrant green eyeshadow from the Maybelline New City Mini Eyeshadow Palette – Central Park Brights to create a show-stopping funky eye makeup look. Next, use a blue eyeliner on your lower lash line and pair this funky eye makeup with fuschia lipstick.  If you love contrasting colours, this funky eyeshadow makeup look is the right pick for you.  

Please, aesthetically!

Take your eye makeup a notch higher by adding lots of shimmer and glitter. Shape your eyebrows well and then use the Maybelline City Mini Eyeshadow Palette or shimmery makeup. Complete your funky eye makeup by using kajal. Amp up the look by drawing flowers or stars around your eyes using a brown eyeliner pencil. This can be tricky and time-consuming, but the result is definitely worth it!  

Heart eyes for you

Feel the love by using your makeup to draw hearts on your face. Do your base makeup as usual. Colour your eyelids by using one of the blushed shades from the Maybelline Blushed Nudes Eyeshadow Palette. Lift and sculpt your lashes with mascara. Then, show your artistic side by using maroon and red lipstick to draw hearts on both of your cheeks. If you wish to go a mile extra, use the blue eyeliner pencil and add some colour to the hearts. Finish your funky makeup look with a red lipstick.  

Bold and wild

Ailurophile? Use an eyebrow pencil to fill in your brows. Colour them to the fullest and don’t allow any eyebrow skin to be visible. To achieve the funky eye makeup look, go for the black eyeshadow from the Maybelline Nudes Eyeshadow Palette and shade your eyelids. Grab the attention by using a kajal to draw cat ears on the outside corner of your eyes. To complete your funky makeup, apply brown lipstick.  

Play up your pout

You don’t need a funky eye makeup for this look. You can keep it simple and almost bare minimum by applying nude eyeshadow. Add a hint of colour to your face makeup by using a pink blush from the Maybelline Fit Me Mono Blush collection. Follow it up by applying a highlighter on certain parts of your face such as the bridge of your nose, cupids bow and more to turn on the glam quotient. Focus on your lip makeup. Stun the scene by using two different matte lipstick shades on your upper lip and lower lip, or you can create an ombre effect. You can also divide the shades into two halves by applying one on the left upper and lower lip and another on the right upper and lower lip. Further, you can use a kajal pencil to overdraw your lips and create a dramatic effect.  


For every funky makeup look to stand out and look perfect, you need good base makeup to support it. Here’s how to achieve flawless base makeup with ease.  


Step 1 – Use a primer to create a smooth canvas for the rest of your makeup.  


Step 2 – Apply foundation to get an even complexion and smooth texture all-day.  


Step 3 – Banish the blemishes, create an even complexion, and highlight certain parts of your face like your eye contours and top of your cheekbones with a concealer
