When it comes to makeup and finding those perfect complimentary colours, many women simply raise their hands in the air with frustration. And even though they’re not experts, they still love to buy eyeshadows and lipsticks in all colors, simply guessing at what looks great! So we thought some basic guidance would help.

Before we learn how to match colors for your makeup, you need to know the following:

The occasion. Glitter is not for your everyday makeup. Wear a natural makeup for everyday and save the glitter and smokey style for special moments.

Skin tone. The color of your lipstick depends on your skin tone: Pink, red and orange are the best for white skin tone; for dark skin tone, colours like red, berry and fuchsia are the ideal.

Now, let’s match colors.
