Hair, makeup, fashion
Hair, Make- up and Fashion sense all contribute to the effectiveness of a woman's appearance. Make – up alone will not present you at your best, if your hair colour and style is all wrong for you. If your clothes are superb but your make-up inappropriate, similarly, the most attractive effect is not gained. Usually, the more attractive we look, the better we feel.
Brunnettes: Can afford to wear more vivid make - up than blondes or redheads. Many brunettes are of "Winter" colouring, and at their best in strong vibrant or icy colours with a blue under tone. Winters can also be ash blondes, blue-black or brown. Whatever the complexion tone, a Winter requires a rose based foundation. Beiges will make her look sallow. Lipstick colours that really suit Winters are pinks, plums. burgundies, blue-reds and clear reds. People who have a grey rim around the edge of the iris of the eye belong to the "cool" tones, either Winter or Summer. Winters usually have the deeper colour, red- brown or dark -brown, hazel, grey-blue or grey-green, or deep blue.
Blondes often prefer a more subtle and natural look which does not overpower their delicate colouring. Blondes are often of "Summer" colouring and look best in cool soft colours with blue under tones. The eyes of a Summer are usually blue, green, aqua or a hazel. Summer ladies usually need a pink based foundation. Summer needs a soft lipstick - blue-based pink. Some Summers are brunettes, with a greyish cast ( described as "mousy ") most flattered by the soft Summer colours. Highlighting often adds life to a blonde. Ash is an excellent colour for blondes.
Reds usually are "Autumn " ladies, at their best in gold or orange based colours. They, especially, can wear the range of browns and yellow, greens, and all the Autumn leaf colours. Most Autumns have brown or green eyes. For make - up, the Autumn lady is best in ivory, peach or copper tones, or natural beiges. Ideal lipstick colours are brick red, orange, coral, peach, rust, mocha. and brownish shades. All Autumn ladies can take red highlights, even brunettes.
Dark Coloured women are usually Winters , though some are Autumns. They come to life with the cool tones or vibrant Winter colours. Strong make-up shades are most effective to bring out their beautiful features.
