Hair Color and Make-Up (2)Previous Page
A plum tone will make the eyes sparkle and it instantly decreases any redness in the eyes while it brings out the eye color. Natural brown and bronze shades are also very attractive with brunette hair. Always keep a strong outline on the eye. Liner or a smoky effect with dark eyeshadow or kajal can be stunning!
Black hair is very intense all by itself. At the same time black has the tendency to make every color next to it appear much stronger and the skin a bit paler. When you put a painting into a black frame, it will vibrate with the enhanced richness of its colors. The lesson is to be careful with the colors that you put in your face as they will really pop out. This can be also an effect that you would like to have. In that case, put it on... A great combination with a retro bob in black is pink lipstick and a dark eyeliner. Play with color combinations to find your favorite one.
If you want to avoid getting too much attention, then stick with natural, muted colors. To make them stand up against the bold hair color you should put them on without being shy. Eyes can be rimmed strongly or hold back on the eye make-up and turn on the color on the lips.
Women with red hair often have fair skin that does not tan well. In many cases freckles are present. Choose a light and transparent foundation or just go with a fine, translucent face powder. You don't have to cover up freckles, they are charming and a part of you. Lipstick is the biggest challenge as many reds just don't go well together. Depending on the shade of your hair, find a lipstick that is close to it. This can look very spectacular when done right. Most red hair has a golden, coppery base, so most lipsticks that are in the golden range, work very well, like a golden apricot or mango tones. Stay away from pink and bright, heavy tomato reds. The contrast is too confusing and can turn gaudy fast. For the eyes, stay with browns, dark green, beige and of course dark brown or black mascara.
When it comes to make-up many women tend to stick with colors and techniques that they adopted early in their life and that worked for them them and in a specific decade. We should however never stop to experiment with colors and some of the great new products that hit the market every year. There are really no strict rules when it comes to how, how much and where to apply which color, since it is a very personal way of expressing oneself. Well, there is one rule ... Have fun with it!!
