The One Thing You Need to Know Before Changing your Haircolor

haircolorMy blonde hair has always been difficult to maintain, especially during the summer when the hot sun turns it brass. And when my “touch up” appointments went from every 6 weeks to every 3 or 4, I knew it was time to take drastic measures. I did the unthinkable this week (in my book), and went back to my natural brunette.

No big deal, or so I thought, until I put my makeup on. I noticed my favorite “go to” shades didn’t look right on me. My skin actually looked quite pale, and the color that used to make my eyes “pop” wasn’t cutting it anymore. After doing a little digging on the subject, I learned there indeed were colors that compliment different shades of hair. Here’s what I found:

Brunette

Most flattering eye shadows: Bronze, Copper, or Gold. Try KmS Mineral Essentials shadows in Cafe Au Lait’, Tahitian Bronze or Bora Bora.
