Colour out con­cerns

Hong Kong Tatler - - Style -

A clev­erly se­lected shade can do more than add a lit­tle glam­our—it can high­light fea­tures, di­vert at­ten­tion from skin con­cerns and lift the over­all com­plex­ion. The se­cret lies in colour con­trast.

Break­outs and rosacea re­sult in red­dened skin; there­fore, red and pink shades should be avoided in favour of pur­ple and coral to pre­vent an over­all red ap­pear­ance. Con­versely, a sharp shade of red can brighten dull skin and dark eye cir­cles by di­rect­ing fo­cus to the lips and adding vigour to your to­tal look.

A cool lip­stick with blue un­der­tones will make teeth ap­pear in­stantly whiter. Got slim lips? Give om­bre a whirl; sim­ply use two dif­fer­ent shades—a darker one on the outer lip line with a lighter one in the cen­tre.
