How to choose the right makeup according to your skin tone: cool or warm.


Hello!

I already made a post about how to determine which skin tone you have so check that one out, if you are not sure, Choosing the right colors really enhance your beauty ;) 



Beauties with cool skin tone should wear:
Appropriate colors include "jewel tones" - blues, greens, pinks, purples, blue-greens, magentas, and blue-based reds.



Foundation: choose colors that have blue- or pink-based undertones to match your cool complexion. And always test the foundation on your face not on the wrist or neck ;) Blended foundation should even out your skin tone, but look natural. Check the color in sunlight and in a well- lighted mirror.When it comes to setting your foundation and making your skin look matte then loose translucent powder is the best.

Blush: pink and plum(for darker skin tones) is the colors that flatter your cheeks most :)

Eyeshadow: To enhance your eyes, select shades in deep, icy blues, silver, gray and emerald green. But pass on colors in the warm brown family, including apricot, coral, cream and bronze. I look sick when I try on coral eyeshadow. My favourite eyeshadows are cool toned purples and pinks together.

Lips: again choose color with blue based undertones 

Beauties with warm skin tone should wear:
Foundation: yellow undertone is a must: colors like  tan, wheat, honey, cream, beige and amber suits you the best :)

Blush: red-orange tones like copper, strawberry, peach, mango, cranberry or tawny suits you the best.

Lips: For lips, draw on deeper versions of your blush color and avoid the opaque, frosted tones.

Eyeshadow: natural colors suits uoy the best in everyday makeup, but if you want to make your eyes pop on special occasion, then there are always options:
for dark brown eyes: choose turqoise or sea green to add brightness
for hazel eyes: pale crimson, pink, coral
green/blue eyes: greens and blues, because your eye color already is a nice contrast to your complexion. Choose also brown, navy or green mascara and eyeliner. 

Hopefully this post was helpful to you and thank you for reading!
