Best Makeup for Your Coloring

Follow this personalized advice to find your best colors.

Not sure which cosmetic colors would best enhance your coloring? Follow these guidelines:

If you have blonde hair

Eyes:

Start with bone shadow all over the eyelid and add taupe from the lashline to the crease of your eyelid. Use a mahogany shade as liner -- it's up to you whether you prefer pencil, shadow, or gel eyeliner.

Lips:

Blondes look great in pink. Try a sheer or medium pink lipstick or lip gloss, or something with beige undertones in it.

Cheeks:

Once again, reach for pink! Peach is another pretty option.

If you have brown hair

Eyes:

Dust bone shadow all over the eyelid and medium brown on the lid from lashline to crease. Use mahogany as a liner.

Lips:

Lip color with brown undertones and a hint of pink or plum work best for brunettes.

Cheeks:

Choose a shade of pink that looks like the color of your cheeks when they're naturally flushed.

If you have red hair

Eyes:

Use a bone shadow all over the lid, and add a mossy green or taupe shadow from the lashline to the crease of your eyelid. Select a red-brown color as an eyeliner.

Lips:

Anything from brown to brown-based peaches and pinks looks great on redheads.

Cheeks:

Apricot looks terrific!

If your hair is gray or white

Eyes:

Brush a white shadow all over the lid, and use a gray or slate on the lid from lashline to crease. Finish with a dark blue or navy liner. This combination really makes your eyes stand out!

Lips:

Opt for a coral or pale pink shade.

Cheeks:

A sheer pink or peach blush instantly lifts your face.
