Have you heard of Kidrobot? It's an artsy line full of fantastical cartoonish figurines. You may have seen the 'Labbit', 'Munny', or mystery breakfast keychains in art museum gift shops or other whimsical stores. My friend Ponyo took me to the Kidrobot store in NYC for the first time. It's so fanciful, you just want to snatch everything up! My favorite figurine was 'Rainbowsaurus', which was a combination between a rainbow and a dragon. (Sadly, at a few hundred dollars, it was a bit beyond my price point). I thought it would be fun to do a blog post on makeup inspired by the Kidrobot store. The image in the photo above was a part of the Kidrobot store's wall mural.
Overall, the key is to keep the colors as clean, elementary, and as well demarcated as possible. With too many colors and too much blending, you might end up looking up a rainbowsaurus.
Thanks for reading! What are your favorite brights and how do you wear them?
