A Rich Season

Wiebelt adds, “Fresh color is great, color that is not muddied with a lot of brown or gray pigments. For fair skin, tans and taupes can wash you out, and for darker skin, the deeper colors can start to look monochromatic. You should go with a look that is complementary, or opposite, to your natural color with tonality and touches of shimmer for added dimension.”

To further the idea of getting the most from makeup hues, Wiebelt also suggests, “Coordinate, enhance and define the features, and choose colors that you feel most comfortable with. Play up one feature in particular, or, at the most, two.”

Making makeup your own is really what completes a good look. If you are uncomfortable in the makeup, it will likely show. However, that doesn’t mean you should be afraid of the rich, vibrant colors this season has to offer. From the deep, sensual look of the smoky eye to the brilliant, bold hue of the red lips to the pale, sculptural aspect of the complexion, makeup is there to enhance beauty, not hide it, and a proper application will do just that.
