Color Me Beautiful

Purple Makeup

Makeup can be magic, let’s think of the color wheel. When someone has dark circles under their eyes and you use yellow concealer it will correct the appearance and brighten their entire look. Color Me Beautiful – this phrase comes from a book that was published in the early 1980’s, some of you may have heard of it. This color analysis concept has a very strong foundation for using color to help us look fabulous. Your cheeks should blush, your eyes should dazzle, and if your lips are inviting people will listen to what you have to say. Everyone wants to look fabulous. However, no one can wear every color. Let’s be honest, we have all made some makeup, wardrobe, or hair color mistakes. How can you make sure you are wearing the best color for you? Start with if someone’s skin, hair, and eye color is light or dark? Then determine if they are warm (reds or golds) or cool (no reds or golds). If someone has dark hair and light blue eyes they would be a dark/cool – because blue is a cool color, they would be a “Winter” color scheme. The right color brings out your own natural beauty, even skin tone may even make those of us that remember the 80’s feel and even look younger!
