COOL makeup to flatter COOL skin
If you have a COOL skin tone then, to look your best, you need Cool toned makeup.
Have you been determined SUMMER or WINTER? Or perhaps you belong to the COOL Color Family? In all cases, you're on the Cool side of the spectrum and will have a Cool/blue undertone to your skin.
You might be fair or have much stronger
coloring but your look is cool. Although it's not always obvious, to some degeee, you have a pink toned complexion.
When you 'dress' and echo your natural cool with complementary shades you'll bring
your coloring to life. Brighter eyes, clearer skin, even your hair color will look more intense!

How to choose Cool makeup to flatter
It's easy to choose Cool makeup colors
just follow the colors from the color palettes - they are all influenced
by blue and therefore have a Cool undertone. Choose your
favorites whether you are fair like the lovely Michelle Pfeiffer or
have stronger coloring like Jamie Lee Curtis whose coloring is more dramatic.
I've put lighter colors with Michelle and stronger colors with Jamie Lee, but the choice is yours.
Ready to complement your skin
When you choose makeup colors with the same Cool undertone as your own, they will complement your cool pink toned skin.
- FOUNDATION: should be matched to your skin tone as closely as possible. Avoid a too 'flat' beige which will dull your coloring - a
touch of pink works.
- LIPSTICK: Natural or clear pinks, rose through to
dusky pinks, plum, burgundy or damson, depending on how deep your
and how comfortable you feel. If your lipstick changes color, then
choose a more natural pinky brown. If you like to wear a light shade
then consider wearing a slightly deeper lip liner for definition.
- EYES: Neutral tones of
taupe, cool beige or smokey grey for shaping and ivory highlighter for the
lid. For added color subtle shades of teal, dusky blues, smudgy purple or a
soft blue green.
- BLUSH: Choose the most natural tone you can - it's often said to copy the color of from the inside of your lip! A
pinky peach or pinkish brown would work as too pink can look clownish.
