50 Shades of You

If you want to revamp your collection of cosmeticsyou might want to consider your skin tone before doing so. Matching and applying makeup to your face is not an easy task. But, knowing how to match everything from jewelry to eyeshadow with your skin tone can also go a long way.  The colors of these items can highlight your appealing natural features and help you look even more stunning than you already are!

Take warm skin tones, for instance. If you have hints of peach or red in your skin, gold jewelry looks marvelous on you as opposed to silver. Additionally, hair colors such as blond and auburn can look equally as gorgeous in contrast to your skin. If you have a cool skin tone, silver jewelry is more up your alley, as well as darker shades of hair color with a blue base. Everyone is different, and it’s these types of factors that make each person unique and beautiful!

However, skin tone isn’t the only factor to consider when you’re trying to look your best. Eye color can say a lot about a person, meaning it’s important to take yours into account. If you’re considering highlighting your luscious locks, it’s critical to choose a hue that complements your irises. For instance, lighter shades of brown and blond work best with blue and green eyes. Darker tones complement hazel and brown eyes. Understanding how colors work together can help you look your best.

  1. The eye color chart you have above is fantastic. It’s true, the more you stray from your natural hue, the more washed out the skin tone becomes. The right shade has a way of bringing out eye color.

  2. I have silver grey hair, darkbrown eyes and and my skin tone I really don’t know how to gage.

    I do not wish to change my hair colr, every one says it looks like I have highlights, but I would like to find a way to look my best though grey haired….not like so old at times . Help!

  3. This is a nice suggestion, but not always true. As a hair stylist I can tall you there are plenty of people who don’t stick to this guide and look fabulous. Such as a pale, cool skin toned woman with blue who wants fiery copper hair. It can compliment by being the opposite, too.

Can't leave the house without my... - Lip gloss. The rest of the day can be a total bust, but if I have a great gloss on I feel like at least I've done one thing right! I would describe my style as... - Definitely au naturale. While I love exploring new shades of eyeshadow and liner on special occasions, for me the most important part of any beauty regimen is keeping my skin clear and blemish-free.
