How To: Get Creative With Colour

How To: Get Creative With Colour

September 22, 2020

Aleph Beauty's compact collection takes the complication out of everyday makeup so you can streamline your beauty routine without sacrificing creativity.

But what is everyday makeup? The common assumption is that everyday makeup is simple, natural and subtle. Likely a combination of products that you feel comfortable using and confident to create the desired look.

Sometimes we can become so attached to our go-to look, that we forget to change things up and experiment with our everyday look. Similar to the favourite outfits we have in our wardrobes – except we don't wear the same thing every day.

Just as we pick outfits based on our moods, schedules and the weather, we can choose our makeup looks too. Redefining "everyday makeup" can help to reconnect with the fun and creativity behind makeup application.


There are so many ways to coordinate your daily outfit choice with your everyday makeup look. Use a splash of colour to spruce up your morning routine and wake up excited to put on makeup.

Forget the overwhelm of waking up early to labour over the countless products in your makeup kit. Aleph's synergistic product range is designed to be mixed and matched for ultimate versatility and customisation.

At Aleph, we believe you don't need a complicated routine to look beautiful. With just a few key products, you can create a stunning look, in a matter of minutes. 

To lend a bit of comforting creativity, the Aleph Beauty Team experimented with colour combinations and some of their favourite outfits.
