For a dark, russet, brown and natural blond hair find the right combination with your makeup and your clothes.
Five Proven Ways to Lose Weight Fast

Selecting appropriate colors in makeup (and clothes) is apt to be a puzzle. And no wonder! The ground rule on choosing makeup says… pitch the shade of your foundation and powder to the color of your skin. Skin tones come in a wide color range: fair, medium, dark, olive, and sallow; and it’s quite a trick deciding which is YOU. However, this is something you must train your eye to see, and it will help if you can “place” yourself in a “cool” or “warm” color group. This color guide may help you.



Dark hair, pale skinPale skin: A girl with dark hair and pale skin, the traditional Irish colleen type, should be considered “cool” in her coloring and has a wider choice in makeup than most.

It’s a perfect base for really delicate makeup effects, or it can be livened up prettily with peachy shades of foundation and face-powder and lipstick in rosy-pink, true-red, or blue-red.

Clothes: For pale skins the best clothes colors are gold, white, light cocoa, ice-blue, scarlet, dark plum, violet, navy-blue, and black.

Dark hair, olive skin - Nicole ScherzingerOlive skin: The brunette with dark or olive skin, she is rated “wann” in coloring, takes most kindly to matching rachel or golden-beige foundation or powder. Match cheek color with rosy lipstick, or with orange-red if the complexion shows warm bronze.

Clothes: Complementary colors are tomató-red, dark red, plum, russet, beige, yellow-green, grass green, true-blue, navy, black, and white.



russet hair, pale skin - Emma StonePale Skin: Once in awhile the (cool) russet-to-redhead comes up with a perfect complexion innocent of freckles (though we like a few). For this, pale and peachy foundation and powder tones are suggested, with lipstick in the clear orange-red range and the coral range.

Clothes: Olive, grey, beige, cocoa, white, plum, navy.

russet hair, florid skin - Marcia CrossFlorid skin: Quite frequently the skin tone is florid. Being “high,” this color is in the “warm” group. If very red, tone down with yellow-beige makeup and complete the strategy with red lipstick a tone or two darker.

If your skin is pink, use a paler beige foundation with no pink in it and bluish-red or pure pink lipstick.

Clothes: grey, cream, beige, pale cocoa, off-white, navy-blue.



brown hair, light skin - Anne HathawayLight to medium skin: The girl who has a good medium (in between) skin may think of herself as a ”mouse,” but actually she has the most versatile of all coloring. She can set it off with any number of makeup shades from pale beige to near-bronze, and get away with it.

Especially at night, when artificial light drains away red, makeup with a strong rose cast is a good bet. Here, true, no-nonsense red is one of the best lipstick shades going.

Clothes: Aqua, burnt orange, gold, coral, grey-blue, rust, navy-blue, and certain tones of yellow.

For example, slightly acid lemon yellow worn with a coral- or chestnut-toned lipstick is very becoming. A yellow which is almost green is even more so.

A pink lipstick often looks good with it, otherwise a coral or blue-red.



natrural blonde, light skin - Amanda SeyfriedLight skin: A natural blonde with light skin (classified “cool”) should aim at a delicate porcelain quality, not a confectionery pink-and-whiteness but like a creamy rose.

This complexion looks pretty when the foundation is a close match, i.e., an egg-shell shade with a hint of pink. A too-pink skin, on the other hand, tones down prettily with true-beige makeup. Lipstick soft rosy-pink or one of the new corals.

Clothes: For this coloring violet-blue,  ice-blue, coral, maroon, lavender, plum, apple green, olive, beige, old gold, white, grey.

natural blond, honey-gold skinHoney-gold skin: A blonde with honey-gold skin belongs to the group that’s described as “warm.” With this coloring stay away from heavy makeup; to match it select neutral shades, to liven it up wear peach-apricot tonings, and experiment with lipstick in the yellow and gold-red range.

Clothes: Warm reds which carry a hint of orange, taffy, rich brown, Kelly green, true-red, rose, turquoise.
