  • Tips for Your Tips: what shades look best with my skin tone?

    We're in the midst of Fall which means most of us have lost our summer tans and are back to our natural skin tones (unless of course you bathe in self-tanner each week, or escaped to St Barths). We get asked from fans all the time which of our shades will look best with certain skin tones, so we're excited to share!

      It's true that jewel tones look great on ALL skin tones, but especially fair and paler skin. A rich shade with blue and red undertones really bring out the pigments in your skin and can brighten you up! Avoid dark or pastel shades.

       

      Shades to try:

       

      Shop spare me a french quarter

       

       

      Shop color so hot it berns

      Both pale lights and bold brights are great shades for those with lighter skin tones. Find a deep pink-red like In the Cable Carpool Lane with blue undertones that will really bring out the best in lighter skin. For softer shades, try a shimmery white-satin like Kyoto Pearl. Avoid darker blues and greens, and golds.

      For medium to tan skin, warm shades can really compliment your complexion. Don't shy away from browns, reds and pinks - the brighter, the better! Match your tan skin to a rich brown shade like Chocolate Moose to show off your tan. Avoid golds as they can blend in too much with your tan skin and lose their sparkle.

      Both rich, deep shades and vibrant, light shades look great with darker complexions. Bright oranges, purples and shimmering pastels all compliment your skin tone. Go for shades with yellow, or pink undertones. Avoid shades that are too dark and they can dull your complexion.
