Makeup Colors…What works for You?

When it comes to makeup colors, some want it all, others? Not so much.

Before I became a fan of “Color Me Beautiful”, I thought one could wear any color as long it was enhanced by the right makeup colors.

To a degree, I still concur. For instance, if you love olive green and you have a yellow base to your skin tone, wearing the right color makeup will help you with a color which would normally wash you out.

If you can’t be bothered with all those choices, knowing your best color palette is handy, and economical.

Here are some great examples of color choices for you. If you are not sure what is best for you, I have been doing color consults since the early 80’s.  Let’s do a consult. Video or in-person. It’s powerful and incredibly helpful.
