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