If you’re looking for the best way to maximize your look, the solution is to coordinate your hair and makeup. No matter your hair color, choosing the right makeup shades to pair with it can play a huge role in your end look. That’s due to the way makeup plays with the light that is absorbed and deflected around your face. When you choose makeup that complements your hair color, you allow your facial features to pop, creating a truly mesmerizing appeal. Sounds pretty great, right? Well, keep reading to see just how great it can be based on your specific hair color. We’ve got you covered!
Black hair has a certain mysterious air to it that requires a special balance of foundation or BB cream to even out the intensity. In order to not look too vampy, try reaching for a tinted moisturizer or ultra-light buildable foundation to create your base. Once you’re happy with the coverage, grab a contouring palette to carve the hollows of your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose, and the outermost part of your forehead. After you have your face down pat, be sure to outline your eyes with black eyeliner and a few coats of mascara so that your eyes stand out just as much as your luscious dark locks. To top off your look, perk up your pout with a vibrant red lipstick that screams classic elegance.

Unlike dark-haired beauties, blonde bombshells have to put a bit more thought into creating the perfect makeup look to make a statement that perfectly frames their face. But with so many shades of blonde, where’s a girl to start? If you’re a natural blonde, your best bet is to stick with sun-kissed shades that really amp up your natural beauty. Think: golds and bronzes. If your blonde hair leans more towards a yellow hue, you can rev up the vibrancy of your look with neutral pinks and peaches. Once you have your color scheme down pat, complete your look with a touch of brown or bronze eyeliner—black tends to look a little too harsh on blondies—and a bubblegum pink pucker for just the right amount of color.

Brown hair looks especially gorgeous with glowing skin, so the main priority in a brunette’s makeup prep routine should be to find the perfect tinted moisturizer to achieve a dewy glow. After you’ve blended your tinted moisturizer in, sweep a smidge of bronzer on your cheekbones, brow bones, and nose to add a little definition to your face. To take it a step further, contour your lids with a champagne and burgundy shadow combo. As a finishing touch, swipe on a dark lipstick. This looks especially beautiful on brunettes because it provides just enough of a contrast to really bring out the vibrancy of your dark strands.

As trendy as monochrome makeup is these days, you may want to avoid all-over color if you’re a redhead. Before you go grabbing for one tone to work magic everywhere, choose a neutral-toned bronzer for your cheekbones, with a slightly pinker blush for the apples of your cheeks. Once you’ve created the base of your makeup look, it’s time to move on to your eyes. When creating your redhead-friendly look, think back to the color wheel and reach for contrasting shades like olive green and chocolate. As your last step, seal your look with a natural-hued kiss to create a hair and makeup combo that looks both gorgeous and otherworldly.
