At 23, I still don't know how to apply make up. I have posted infos on the latest fashion get-ups and how to wear them. So now, it's high time to include this post in my blog, the mixing and matching.

According to what I found, when it comes to finding your perfect makeup palette, let your hair color be your true guide. Here we go!


Avoid matte nudes — they can wash you out. Instead, pair a shimmery eye shadow with sheer berry cheeks and lips to brighten your complexion, says Jillian Dempsey, Avon's new global creative color director.

Wear It With:

1. Bourjois Liner Pinceau in Prune Styliste, $15
2. Neutrogena Full Volume Fortifying Mascara in Brown, $6.49
3. Maybelline Dream Mousse Shadow in Lilac Cloud, $6.50
4. L'Oréal Paris Bare Naturale Gentle Mineral Blush in Pinched Pink, $15.25
5. Clinique Colour Surge Lipstick in Extreme Pink, $14


Flatter a dark hair/fair-to-medium skin combo with sheer plum pigments. For dark hair/dark skin, opaque plums and jewel tones look gorgeous coupled with a swipe of sexy gray eyeliner.

Wear It With:

1. Neutrogena Soft Color Blush in Sunny Spice, $9.75
2. Avon Ultra Color Rich Lipstick in Sheer Sangria, $6.50
3. CoverGirl Perfect Point Plus Eye Pencil in Charcoal, $4.69
4. Iman Sheer Finish Bronzing Powder in Afterglow, $13.99
5. bareMinerals Eyeshadow in Good Fortune, $13


Unless you're going Goth, avoid pale foundation, as the contrast between dark and light can get ghostly. To play up your hair color, stick with deep hues instead, like rich purple, says celebrity makeup artist Landy Dean.

Wear It With:

1. Rimmel Cheeky! in Cheer Up, $6.95
2. Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Mulled Wine, $7.99
3. Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils in 1999, $15
4. Yves Saint Laurent Everlong Mascara in 3, $26.50
5. L'Oréal Paris Wear Infinité Eye Shadow Single in Midnight Sky, $3.95


It's a given that redheads look gorgeous in green. But warm makeup tones, like peach and copper, are equally flattering, says Carmindy, a celeb makeup artist.

Wear It With:

1. Lancôme Color Design Eye Shadow in Click, $15
2. Rimmel London Eye Twist Automatic Duo Liner & Shadow in Double Trouble, $5.70
3. Clinique Blushing Blush Powder Blush in Precious Posy, $18.50
4. Neutrogena Moisture Shine Lipstick in Shimmering Blush, $8.99
5. L'Oréal HIP Color Truth Eyeliner in Brown, $8
