How to tweak your makeup so your nat­u­ral grey hair looks on-trend, rather than old-fash­ioned

The Kit - - THEKITCA -

1. KEEP YOUR SKIN LOOK­ING VI­BRANT

Glowing, rosy skin is per­haps the big­gest sig­ni­fier of youth and vi­tal­ity, and grey hair can leave your face look­ing washed out. Start with a ra­di­ant base us­ing a rich hy­drat­ing cream fol­lowed by a tinted mois­tur­izer or creamy foun­da­tion. Next, the most im­por­tant step: blush. Ap­ply a dewy cream blush in a poppy apri­cot or pink shade on the ap­ples of your cheeks for a youth­ful flush.

2. DE­FINE YOUR BROWS

With­out darker hair to frame your face, defin­ing your fea­tures be­comes ever more im­por­tant. A sim­ple coat of black mas­cara goes a long way to de­fine your eyes, es­pe­cially if your eye­lashes start to lose their colour as well. Eye­brows can do a lot for you as well—whether you go for a pen­cil, a pot of brow colour with an an­gled brush or a brow mas­cara, choose a cool grey-brown tone that’s not too dark and del­i­cately fill in your nat­u­ral shape.

3. BRING YOUR LIPS TO LIFE

Sub­tly en­hance your lips with a hy­drat­ing tint that’s a cou­ple of shades deeper or more vi­brant than their nat­u­ral hue. Since grey hair is typ­i­cally on the cool end of the spec­trum, a neu­tral or cool pink shade is of­ten the most flat­ter­ing choice, no mat­ter your skin­tone.
