How many of you have found it real hard at times to choose a lip color or a shade of eye make-up? Well! I have. And at times , I still do! There are a hoard loads of different shades of make-up that I would love to wear but tch tch! *SKIN TONES*
Yeah! Its all about the complexion of your skin that determines what colour of make-up would suit you the best! Not all can wear a hot pink or a coral. Not everyone can do a complete black smokey eye and look all glammed up! M sure none of you want to end of looking like this.
In this post, I’m just going to share a few tips that may help you determine what you may look the best in. Though there are ones who would love to experiment (I personally envy and look upto them :D)!
Fair Skin – In India, its a well known fact that men prefer fairer girls. Well, not all colors prefer the fairer shade!
For that perfect smokey eyes, use silver shimmer over the lid or grey or taupe shades to get a smokey look.

Wheatish Skin – Very easily, the most common one. Adding warm undertones of reds and/or browns to the eyes will get you that perfect smokey look.wheatish warm smokey eyes

Using rich, warm and dark shades of black will give you that perfect smokey eyes. A winged liner and voila!!

Use dark shades of reds like wine and plum on your lips.
