Arguibally the most important thing to consider when choosing makeup is what color is best for you. Mess up the color, and you could look all wrong.
The key when choosing your makeup colors is understanding your skin complexion, in particular whether your skin is warm or cool. This will make it so much easier to pick the right shades for your skin type.
- You have a dark hair color
- The color of you eyes are blue or green
- Your skin tone is either rosy or olive
Here's the key factors that will determine if you need a warm color:
- You have a light hair color
- The color of you eyes are dark
- Your skin tone is darker
When it comes to eyeshadow, as a rule of thumb if you have lighter skin, you would want to go for dark colors like brown or purple. But if you have a darker skin, you'd look much better with lighter colors, our favorite would be pink or even silver.
These rules do not apply when it comes to face powder. We constantly see girls with pale skin trying to compensate with a darker color. This is a big mistake, and you should always try to use a simple color, cream would work best. For those with a darker complexion, there hard no hard rules. You could go much darker without adverse effects.
One important thing to bear in mind is that all women (yes, you too!) are different. While the above rules are great general guidelines to follow when choosing the color of your make-up; bear in mind that your skin complexion is unique in some ways. So follow the rules, and then make a decision whether it looks good on you. If it doesn't, try something new. We encourage experimenting with as many different colors and shades as possible to see which ones make you look best.
