Anonymous asked: Hi! I read your blog about six months/ I really like your makeup and most importantly that it is possible to communicate with you. I would like you to know about color matching makeup. How to combine eyeshadow to blush or lipstick? Or choose cold or warm shades of eyeshadow? I am the owner of a light skin, but slightly warmer than yours, I think with yellowish midtone, and sometimes it seems to me that this or that shade of brown doesn’t suit me. And how are you choose colours?
When I wear a colour that doesn’t seem to suit me I always make sure to tweak the rest of my makeup to go with it.
Let’s say you want to use an icy blue eyeshadows but you’re “too warm toned” for it. Then don’t emphasize the warm tone in your skin with loads of bronzers and such, tone it down with slightly cooler blushes and lip colours (without going lavender toned for that sake) just to make the whole face look a tad cooler. Then it’s easier to wear that complicated colour.
This is exactly what I’ve been doing since I got a warmer hair colour, I started wearing bronzers, eyeshadows and even foundations that are warmer in tone so that my appearance gets an even harmony. Products that were too warm for me when I had cool toned hair.
Another great way is to create bridges between colours. If you want to wear that icy blue eyeshadow (or purple blush or whatever you’re interested in) you can wear it with some other favourite product, tone them together, layer, experiment! You might find a perfect combination where that strange colour is toned down but still apparent.
I hope this helped you somewhat!
