Learning how to mix and match your makeup can be as enjoyable as it is effective, but how can you be sure to mix the right colors and match the best themes? Well there are plenty of ways to apply your makeup, but we’ll take a look at some of the most popular methods for mixing and matching your beauty products so that they’re as effective as possible.
Using a Color Palette
One of the most effective ways to make sure that your makeup matches is to limit your color palette. If you’re going for high contrast tones, try to limit them to just one or two. If your palette will consist of pastel colors, then you can vary the shades from soft to dark. One of the most important things to bear in mind is that when you apply your makeup, if you want it to match, you’ll want to blend your colors as neatly as possible. This technique might take a little longer, but it can help you to fade between gradients with barely any interruption to colors and shades.
Using High Contrast Schemes
There’s nothing more eye-catching that a makeup scheme that uses vibrant colors to really grab attention. The two main places that you can enjoy vibrant color schemes are around your eyes and on your lips. Vibrant colors don’t have to clash either – you could use the same shape of red for your lips as on your eyelids for example. So what are your options for using two high contrast colors, without risking clashing? Well the first thing that you can do is check out which colors work well together. Green and purple are strange partners, but they seem to work on lighter skin to give a futuristic-appearance. Red and black are also hugely different but provide a great combination when paired.
Why not try playing around with a range of color combinations? You’ll be surprised with what you can come up with and you’re bound to find a color scheme that suits you.
