Your hair color can have a big impact on the colors in your makeup palette, and that's why Mark celebrity makeup artist Fiona Stiles recommends different hues for blondes, redheads, and darker-haired beauties. Consider this your personal color-coded key to mastering the Spring makeup trends based on your hair color.
According to Stiles, the fair-haired bunch should turn to purple pastels to liven up their seasonal makeup palettes. Powdery lavenders or a more vibrant violet will accent the golden tones of the hair. She also recommends adding a touch of bronzer on cheeks to fake a sun-kissed glow.
For those with darker hair and lighter skin tones, Stiles recommends bright corals and peach colors, because they're the perfect neutrals. "It's not as girlie as pink, but not as grown up as red," she explains. Want something more eye-catching? Go for a spot of jade or turquoise eyeliner, which looks especially striking for darker-haired women with deep or olive complexions.
Generally, redheads are discouraged from wearing bold red lip color, but Stiles believes it's a rule to be broken. Match your blazing hair with an equally fierce lipstick hue. "A red-orange lip looks more modern on a redhead," Stiles says.
One easy switch to make for Spring is trading your matte makeup products for traditionally higher-on-shine alternatives. But before you head to the store to stock up on all-new cosmetics, you can get a dewy complexion using the products you already own. Find out how to gloss up your seasonal palette when you read more.
If you thought pastel eye makeup was only for preteens and the runway, you're wrong! You can wear lilac and mint shades (even though Easter is weeks off yet). Mark. celebrity makeup artist Fiona Stiles reveals how any woman can conquer the fairer shades of the spectrum, no matter your skin tone.
1. Prime Lids: Pastel colors have a tendency to fade or look ashy — especially on darker skin tones. So that pastel pigments stay true to their color, Stiles recommends first using an eye shadow primer or concealer to lay the base. Stiles's favorite shades for Spring are seafoam green, coral, and vibrant blues.
2. Add Black: If you're looking to balance the sweetness of pastel eye makeup, incorporate a dose of black. Black liquid liner and lots of inky mascara lend a much-needed edge, resulting in a modern, not immature, effect.
3. Combine Colors: It's OK to mix colors when you wear pastels. One way to temper the light hue is to add a complementary darker shade on the outer corners of the lid, leaving the pastel to brighten the inner corners. Also, try keeping the color close to the lash line or in the waterline. Then use a taupe shadow in the crease. For the more daring, pair pastels with a touch of colored mascara on lower lashes.
