COLOR: you need to know what color you are, and also that different rules apply to makeup than to clothes–I wear bright, jewel-toned cool colors very well, and tend to look odd and washed out in warm colors or pale colors. However, my face has a lot of pink and red in it, so to neutralize the pink tone in my skin, I tend to wear foundations with a yellow base and a lot of peach blushes. The ideal color of skin is neutral, so I neutralize my skin! 🙂 This makes you radiant and glow–especially if you wear clothes that complement your skin tone!
As a general rule, you want to have one base color for all your products–so if you are wearing brown/gold eyeshadow, then you want warm colors such as a coral lipstick and a peach blush. Similarly, if you are wearing cool colors, such as silver/blue/cool browns/black, than you are going to want to complement them with a cool blush and lipstick.
As you can see, all these colors complement each other and even though the shades range from light warm coral/pink to dark warm wine to bright red to peach to nude, they all have that warm base, so they look wonderful together! Below is a gallery of me wearing the different lipsticks with the different blushes and bronzers. As you can see, they make me look pretty healthy and glowy, even though I am exhausted and a bit sick!
So as you can see, the same goes for the pinks! Below is a gallery of me wearing the different lipsticks with the different blushes. As you can see, I look washed out and fatigued.
So, I hope this was helpful! I wanted to change my eye look too, but I was too tired. 😉 However, the same rules apply, so play and enjoy!
