As make-up was very heavy, garish and left many people with blemishes, a basic skin care routine was good old fashioned soap. However if wasn’t just any old soap it...
Every woman loves to look her best, and we always feel at our most beautiful when our makeup perfectly complements our features, skin tone and hair colour. Feeling stunning gives us a surge in confidence and the better we feel, the better we look. Whatever hair colour you have, we can help you find the colours and shades that will bring out your natural beauty.
Dark brown hair frames the face and offers the ideal canvas for bolder and darker colours. Rich chocolate tones go perfectly with vibrant shades like plums, bright reds and metallics. The warmth of a brunette’s eyes can be enhanced with metallic eyeshadows such as copper, bronze and gold, and bronzers with gold flecks will give the cheeks a radiant glow. Brown eyes can benefit from a stroke of black eyeliner along the bottom lash line and two to three coats of mascara.
Black hair has an air of mystique and looks great when just one facial feature is accentuated with sultry colour. Focus on the eyes to really bring out the beauty of raven hair. Make sure they smoulder with smoky shades like charcoal and grey, and tease the lips and cheeks with a hint of sheer pink blush. Finish the look with dramatic lashings of black mascara.
Blonde hair surrounds the face with light, so it is best to play up this golden glow. Blondes look fantastic with sheer shades of gold, champagne, pink and peach. Go for a shimmering amber or iridescent champagne eyeshadow and dust from the lids to the creases and just under the lower lashes. Add definition with brown eyeliner along the top lash line and a coat of brown or black mascara. Top off the radiant glow with a touch of pink to the apple of the cheeks. Red hair gives the complexion a natural warmth. Auburn and ginger hair look fabulous with luminous makeup. Dewy and rosy cream pinks look sensational on the lips and green shadow makes the eyes really pop. Finish the warmth of the entire look with a reddish-brown liner along the top lashes.
