The right makeup colors are just as important as the right clothing colors.
Just like fads in fashion, there are fads in makeup. I like to be aware of colors that I know look good on me and those that I know don’t so that even if something is all the rage, I can choose a shade that won’t make me look like I’m sick. To me, wearing colors that make the most of my natural coloring is the most important thing about wearing makeup. Because if your makeup doesn’t make you look great, then what’s the point of wearing it? I personally think that all women look better with some color, even if it’s just some mascara and lipgloss.
The colors shown below are meant to give you some color inspiration and are by no means the only colors you should ever wear. These are just some of the colors that will look good on you. And please be aware that some of them are meant to be metallic or pearly, but it’s hard to capture that with flat colors so all of the shades shown will have some variation in real life.

Summer coloring is cool and delicate.
Not all Summers are alike. Summers may be Light, Cool, or Soft.
You can find out more about the different Summer types here.
As a Summer, you will want to keep your makeup colors cool with pink or blue undertones. Avoid dramatic eye makeup and yellow greens.
Special tips for Light Summers: Don’t overpower your delicate complexion with dark shades of eyeshadow or lipsticks. Keep cheek color pale and cool.
Special tip for Cool Summers: Keep lip liner shades soft. A soft rose or soft pink are both good choices.
Special tips for Soft Summers: Avoid using color combinations that are too contrasting. Keep lip liners light and neutral so they don’t deepen your lipstick color. Avoid dark, muted brown lip colors.
