Makeup That Compliments Your Hair Color

You always hear, "if you have X eye color, then wear Y eye shadow color". But I never really hear anything about makeup colors for your hair color. Which I find interesting. I mean, your hair is way more noticeable than your eyes. It only makes sense that your makeup should compliment you hair color as well.

A couple of years ago I went from having platinum blonde hair to a rich brown color. I absolutely loved it, but I was a little clueless with what to do with my makeup. And later this month I'm going to go from my rich brown color to red. (A process you'll get to see!)

So for those of you out there like me, who are changing your hair color drastically, or just need a little change from your routine, here's some help with what color makeup is best for what hair.


Blondes. They have more fun. And there is a lot a blonde can do with makeup. But there are also some things to avoid. Like matte nudes. They tend to wash blondes out, and no one likes a ghostly blonde. They're no fun.

Think fruit. Berry. Peach. Champagne. Champagne is a fruit in  my mind. These are perfect colors for blondes. Add a soft pink lip and you're set!

Jane Iredale, Pure Pressed Triple Eye Shadow, Pink Bliss, $28.00

I absolutely love the Jane Iredale Pure Pressed Eye shadow. And the triple eye shadows are such a steal. The pink bliss triple eye shadow is perfect for blondes. It has pink, berry, and champagne. Hello, one stop shop.


Brown. This is my realm. 

Hey brunettes! Please don't use a foundation that is paler than your actual skin tone. Actually, everyone please avoid using a foundation that is paler than your skin tone. But especially brunettes. Remember that girl from The Ring? You don't want to look like that.

For eye shadows, more natural colors are the best. Think bone, beige, or gray. But don't worry, you can bring your color in in your cheeks and lips. Wear that red lipstick girl! You can rock it.

But corals and pinks are also color pallets that will work for you. So try 'em out ladies.


Ahh, redheads, how I wish to be one. Soon enough. Soon enough.

All you green eyed beauties out there with red hair have it made. Green is one of the best colors for red hair. Don't have green eyes? Don't worry. Swipe on a bit of green shadow or liner. pur-fection

Other than green, warm tones like peach or copper look great. And of course, red heads can pull off a pretty amazing smokey eye.

But on your lips and cheeks, ladies, stick to sheer or pinks.

Red and green. It's like Christmas. What could be better?

  3. Right now it sounds like Drupal is the top blogging platform out there right now.
    (from what I've read) Is that what you're using on your blog?
