Beauty comes in all colors, and so does makeup. Check out this guide to choosing your basic, no-fail hues.
Women with this coloring have so many makeup hues to choose from, and they look especially radiant in golden colors.
Choose golden-pink shimmer. It will bring out the natural gold in your skin.
Pick caramels, toffees, coffees, chocolate browns, deep wines, navy blues, granites, golds, bronzes, emerald greens, teals, deep plums, and violets.
Look for berries, golden corals, bronzes, terracottas, deep warm pinks, and dark apricots.
Think sheer golds, beiges, coffees, caramels, toffees, bronzes, berries, plums, wines, pinks, corals, sheer raisins, and garnet reds.
You can pull off bold, jewel-toned colors like no one else! Anything too light or sheer might look ashy.
Choose a true gold color. It's the perfect hue for you.
Choose golds, coppers, bronzes, coffees, deep navy and cobalt, rich dark eggplant and purples, deep jewel-toned greens, slate and dark charcoal grays, metallics, ebony, and deep mahogany and chocolate browns.
Make the whites of your eyes pop by applying sapphire blue pencil along the inner rims.
Think dark raisins, burnt orange, magentas, fuchsia (don't be scared, it will look beautiful on dark skin), and rich blood reds.
Pick sheer lip gloss in shimmery clears, golds, honeys, caramels, oranges, corals, tangerine, deep plums, bronzes, and bronzy pinks. Or choose lipsticks in sheer mahogany, blackberry, maroon, raisin, and deep red.
In addition to women with Hispanic roots, this group includes all women with olive skin, such as those from Italy, India, or the Middle East. Bright colors, like coral, on cheeks and lips, and everything from shimmery bronzes and pale golds to deep greens and blues around your eyes will play up your amazing skin color.
I love pale golds and pinky golds to highlight the skin and create a luminous glow.
Eyes look amazing in rich sparkling browns and burgundies, copper, bronze, gold, warm tawny pinks, eggplants and warm plums, deep forest greens, and sapphire blues.
Think warm pinks, corals, brownish rose, apricot, and bronze.
Go for warm pinks, sheer shimmery nudes, corals, peachy apricot, bronze and golds, golden berry shimmer, and sheer blood reds.
