Dopamine Beauty: Ways to Try this Popular Beauty Trend

During the COVID-19 pandemic, many women were drawn to minimalist makeup looks. Today, more and more people are yearning for more color. For this reason, dopamine beauty has become a popular trend. As you know, dopamine is a feel-good hormone, usually released when doing activities, including exercising or eating chocolate. Aside from that, experts believe that bright colors can also trigger the release of this hormone, uplifting your mood. As such, dopamine beauty is all about wearing bold-colored makeup to feel happier. So, here are some ways to try the dopamine beauty trend.

Colorful Cat Eyes

The simplest way to do the dopamine beauty trend is to swap your regular black eyeliner for a brighter shade. Nowadays, eyeliners come in various hues, such as green, blue, and yellow. You can also dab some glitters on your lid for a more dramatic effect. Another option is to apply a highlighter to your eyes’ inner corners. Whatever technique you use, the goal is to make your eyes pop using colorful eye makeup.

Flushed Cheeks

Of course, your dopamine beauty look is not complete without applying blush. In fact, flushed cheeks are a staple if you want to achieve a soft and happy glow. You can start by gently tapping your favorite blush on your cheekbone, going to your temple, and stopping at the brow bone. Remember, you have to start small and add more if you want more color. That way, your blush wn’t look messy.  Another tip is to use cream blushes because they are easier to build if you want a subtle and healthy flush.
