Thinking of switching up your hair color this season? Whether you make the leap from blonde to brunette or balayage to fiery red, it doesn’t mean you have to change your entire beauty regimen. All you need is one great makeup look that works no matter what your hair color. According to makeup artist Susie Sobol (she works with beauty legend Diane Kendal), you can take a bold lip and ‘60s-inspired cat eye from a sexy blonde to a sultry redhead!
“A bold lip and an easy cat eye looks great on blondes, brunettes, and redheads alike,” says makeup artist Susie Sobol. “First, neutralize any redness with a base of foundation or tinted moisturizer. If a bold lip scares you, go for a matte finish—which is so on trend right now—and choose a red that has cool or warm undertones, depending on your skin color. Pair it with a black cat eye and plenty of mascara. Black will bring out the color of anyone’s eyes regardless of their skin tone.” Once you’ve created your masterpiece, finish with a little blush to the apples of your cheeks and sweep gel through your brows.
The most important thing to remember? Have fun! Play with different hairstyles and products, and don’t be afraid to experiment with different looks.
