A few weeks ago I read an interesting post on the In-Style website about 'Finding Your Best Colors'. What I noticed about the recommendations is that the shades really do enhance your natural skintone and features. I decided to create a look based on the recommendations for the 'Medium to Medium-Deep' Skintone. I didn't use the exact colours recommended because I didn't have all of them, but I matched them as closely as I could.
For the eyes, the article recommended copper and bronze/brown tones, so I used 'Marche aux Puces' eyeshadow duo by MAC and Teddy eyeliner. Next, I applied Sincere blush by MAC - a soft coral/peach colour was recommended. Finally, for the lips, the article suggested a sheer berry tone, so I decided to try NARS Shrinagar lipstick, which is a cool-berry tone, but also applies very sheer. Here is the look:
I really like this look - I think the coppery/bronze tones bring out the blue in my eyes and the berry lip mimics my natural lip shade. I'm definitely going to keep playing around with a warmer copper/gold/bronze eye and cooler-berry lip combination. I think it's polished yet classic!
