While there certainly are hundreds of products that work well for each shade of our range of brown skin, there are some that are flattering on all of us. If you’re looking for some new products to add to your stash that you know will look good without thinking, read on…
1. Purple liner/shadow. Royal purple, mauve, lilac, etc., it works on every skin tone plus it makes brown, hazel, and green eyes pop. Purples to try: Milani LIQUID EYE Liquid-Like Eye Liner Automatic Propel Pencil in Purple, Make Up For Ever Eyeshadow in #92, MAC Eyeshadow in Nocturnelle.
2. Berry lipstick. Because it falls somewhere in the middle of cool and warm undertones, berry is a hue that’s universally flattering. Plus it has a place in your makeup bag no matter the season. Berries to try: Milani Color Perfect Lipstick in Berry Rich, MAC Lipglass in Desire, Fashion Fair Lipstick in Plum Passion.
3. Coral blush. We already confirmed that blush is a must for everyone when we went through our beauty resolutions, so start it off right with a coral blush. The vibrant shade helps to brighten the skin and gives a more alert and radiant look. Coral blushes to try: Illamasqua Powder Blusher in Excite, NYX Cosmetics Blush in Cinnamon, NARS Blush in Amour.
4. Champagne highlighter/eyeshadow. A neutral with a little kick, champagne hues flatter all shades of brown and work in both the office and on the weekend. Products to try: NYX Eyeshadow in Aloha, MAC Eyeshadow in All That Glitters, Urban Decay Baked Bronzer in Gilded.
