Beauty - Makeup Color Advice

Author : Callum Leslie Walters

When it comes to choosing your makeup, it is important that you choose the correct colors that will compliment your skin. Choosing the right colors is really the only way that you can ensure that your makeup looks great all the time. Here are a few guidelines that will help you when it comes to proper color usage. There are several things that you have to keep in mind when choosing your colors for your eyes, cheeks and your lips.

The first thing that you need to consider when choosing your colors is the color of your hair. If you have darker hair, then you will be able to use brighter colors. Lighter hair goes better with neutral colors, as brighter colors tend to make you look washed out. You should also consider the color of your eyes. Your eye color will make different colors of eye makeup look different. You will want to find colors that compliment your eyes.

Your skin tone is yet another thing that you need to take a look at. Darker skin tones will look great with most any color of makeup. While this is true of darker skin tones, it is not of lighter skin tones. Darker, or neutral colors, will look the best on pale skin tones. This is because it helps to make your skin look vibrant instead of pale and lacking color. Make sure that you do not make yourself look more pale, like a ghost.

Another great way to choose your colors is by trial and error. If you visit the local department store that carries your line of makeup you can try on several colors to find one that will look best on you. The experts that work in these departments are usually very good at making recommendations depending on your particular skin color, eye color and hair color. By trying on a few colors, you will be able to find something that looks great.

As you can see, choosing your makeup colors correctly is very important. Choosing the wrong colors can really be detrimental to your look. It can make you look sick and pale, instead of healthy and vibrant. You may want to find several colors so that you can achieve several different looks depending on the time of day or the occasion. Vibrant colors are best for evenings, and neutral colors are best for every day use. These are just a few tips.
