Winter Makeup Colours To Suit Your Skin Tone

For light skin tones

Lips: Cherry red or pale pink

Eyes: Charcoal grey or silver

Try the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette for a good selection of greys and the Bobbi Brown Starlight Crystal Eye Shadow Palette for some sparkle.

For medium skin tones

Lips: Wine or nude

Eyes: Dark violets or black

We would suggest Charlotte Tilbury’s The Rock Chick palette for darks and complimentary greys. However, for violet tones, the Too Faced Just Peachy palette offers a nice variety of shades that blend together perfectly.

For dark skin tones

Lips: Dark purple or berry red

Eyes: Copper or gold

For some real sparkle, the Too Faced Chocolate Gold eyeshadow palette is highly pigmented with plenty of glitz. Though we’d recommend not going over the top for the sake of your wedding photos. Charlotte Tilbury’s Dolce Vita has a lovely selection of copper colours with some added sparkle.

Finally, When choosing your wedding day foundation, opt for a light-reflecting one to neutralise your skin tone. However, avoid powder foundation as it can make your skin appear dry. It will also sit in any creases and wrinkles. Instead, opt for a liquid foundation.
