Makeup & the Different Rules
One of the most important things to get right with regards to your coloring is makeup. Nothing can show up more noticeably wrong than wearing the wrong shade of lipstick, blush, or eyeshadow. And foundations must be correct above all else.
Let’s say you know your color season and your best palette of colors. You might even have one of my color swatches. And let’s say you are a Cool Winter (Winters can be the toughest to get makeup right for). You know that as a Cool Winter that magenta and hot pink are colors that will always look good on you. So why not wear your blush and lipstick in that shade?
Back to my Clear Winter model above: In the left photo, she is wearing all those cool bright colors that would look fine in a blouse or dress. But when you want a natural-looking, every day look, you will want to tone things down considerably.
The photo on the right shows her wearing some cool taupe/grey eyeshadow, some soft pink blush and a very light pinkish, almost nude lip color. She looks so much better. You notice HER first, not her makeup.
This is just one model in my new eBook. Learn more about the slightly different rules regarding makeup and color analysis when you purchase "Pretty Your World's Makeup Book" (real original title, huh?) No hype; just common sense advice.
