Because not one shade fits all, CIIN brings you the best tips on how to adjust your makeup in terms of colors and shades when you drastically change your hair color… Did you go darker this summer? Lighter or even a daring redhead.. Yo go girl! Get ready to enjoy the process of buying, trying and testing out your new makeup!
1 || If You Go Darker
Keep your eyeliner and brows in check. When your hair is lighter, you can do more crazy things with eye shadow and liner. But the minute you go darker, you need to keep it more neutral around the eyes. Otherwise you can look really overdone. Similarly, having darker hair doesn’t necessarily mean you need darker brows. Use a light hand when filling them in, and use a soft shade of brown..
2 || If You Go Lighter
Don’t be afraid to go bold and warm with your color choices. It’s a great time to experiment and try out bolder shades that can bring more color to the face. On your cheeks, sweep a peachy hued blush and a dusting of golden bronzer; these shades help warm up the skin.
3 || If You Go Red
Don’t be afraid to wear blush, just be mindful of the correct shade for your hair and complexion. For some reason, society has told redheads not to wear blush. Don’t listen! The trick is to find the right shade for you. MAC has a great redhead-friendly shade called Gingerly. We think MAC must have chosen the name for a reason. The color has hints of pink, but its base color is almost the shade of a bronzer. It’s gorgeous with fair skin and any shade of red hair.
