Beauty: How to Find Colors for Your Skin Tone

With the exception of foundation and powder (please, please PLEASE go to a makeup counter to get color matched), finding makeup colors that look fab on you is easier than you might think.


Here's some helpful hints...

Blue and Green Eyes have it easier, because you can pretty much get away with anything! Whether you are choosing an eye color, cheek color, or lipstick, your skin tone allows you to wear it all well, so don’t be afraid to go for it! Break out of the neutrals zone and add some pizzazz. You really can’t go wrong. 
With that being said, if you put something on and you don’t like the way it looks, don’t wear it! 
You have the freedom to choose from the vast array of colors available, and it’s all about what makes YOU feel beautiful.

Brown eyed/olive skinned gals, like myself, need not despair. While it is true that we should, in general, avoid certain shades of green, yellow and orange -they just don’t work for us- we have plenty of other options. AND, we can rock a dark smoky eye like no one else (hello Ms. Spears and Ms. Kardashian!). We can also use some fun, funky colors, but in smaller doses, and with strategic placement.



Women of color are absolutely stunning in some dazzling combinations. One of my favorites is gold and deep blue. Ahhhhhh. The effect is lovely. The eye colors combined with the gorgeous skin color equals exquisite beauty!


Your turn! Got any color success or horror stories? Have you found any unique color combos that just rock? Let us know!
