13 reasons you shouldn’t be afraid to rock bright coloured makeup like Jade Thirlwall!

She totally changed our opinion on it

You only have to take a look at all the awesome listicles and quizzes we produce on the site to see that Little Mix are some of our style faves.

Seriously, those girls know how to rock a trend or two and are always encouraging us to step out of our fashion and beauty comfort zones and dabble in something new.

We even wore a dress back to front all day long because Jade did it – lol!

Recently though, the girls have been pushing the boundaries for makeup inspiration.

It’s no secret that many of us are pretty big mahoosive fans of their classic smokey eye and nude lip combo, but Jade has recently taken that look to a whole new level.

OMG, guys – prepare to be impressed.

In one of her latest selfies, Jade ditched the ‘safe’ makeup tones and rocked a look that feature a splash one heck of a lot of colour.

Everyone say hello to rainbow eyes!

Jade looks gorgeous and the snaps have encouraged us to delve into bright coloured eye and lip makeup.

After all, what’s the point in having fantastic eyeshadow colours, if we’re never going to use them?!

Looooovvvveeeeeeeeeeee it!

What’s even better is that you can re-create Jade’s rainbow eyes at home. We’re not gonna lie, guys and gals – it takes A LOT of practise. But the product, Little Mix’s makeup artist, Adam Burrell, used on our fave singer is super affordable.

According to Adam’s Instagram, the palette he used to create Jade’s look is Urban Decay’s ‘Full Spectrum’ palette. You can buy it from Debenhams and it’s now half price at £25.80.
