The Right Makeup for Your Hair Color

As much as we love using makeup, buying products left and right without considering how flattering it will be for your hair color is a definite no no! No matter how amazing your new hair color or highlights are, chances are if you wear the wrong makeup it will clash with your hair color.  (This can get ugly really fast!)

But, don’t worry!  There are numerous shades of eyeshadows and limitless blushes available, so what does look best for your hair color? Dyed or natural, the right makeup will bring that extra va-va-voom to your look!  Tip: If you want to keep your hair color looking fresh and bright, opt for fresh flushed cheeks and even a highlight your cheekbones.

  • Brunette to Black
    • Dark hair ladies can get away a bold and bright combination of colors such as metallics, neutrals, purples and plums. Using shades of bronze and copper across your eyelids can create a richer tone to your look. If you have a warmer undertone, go for gold shades on your eyes and some bronzer on your cheeks for a glowing look.
    • Red Head
      • Rule number 1: Avoid red and orange tones in your makeup! Go for contrasting cool shades such as greens and blues on your lids. Try out warmer shades since red hair naturally adds warmth to your skin, shades such as browns and nudes. Opt for soft pink and nude lips and a rosy blush for a natural look.
      • Blonde
        • Having cool toned hair means having your face surrounded by light, using cool shades of silver, gray and blues will play up with your golden locks with bright shades.

Va-va-voom!  What hair/makeup combo are you rocking?
