W: Let's talk hair...
I: Brunettes can pull off most colours as brown is a neutral colour, but purple/plum really makes brown eyes pop! Blondes suit red lipstick and it lifts copper tones on the eyes (just try to avoid orange or yellow as this may clash). Redheads look amazing in soft pink tones.
W: How about complexions – fair, olive, dark?
I: It’s very dependent on the overall look you are going for. If you want to be bold, fair skin looks great with a pop of colour like purple or red. Olive or dark skin tones should avoid anything too ‘frosty’ or pale, as it can make your lips look dry. Other than that, these complexions can pull off most bold lipsticks with ease. Lucky!
W: Eye colour seems to play a big role in choosing the right lipstick. What would you recommend for each?
I: The secret trick is to choose the complete opposite colour to make your eyes pop. For example, blue eyes look great with orange undertones, while green eyes suit berry red shades. While brown eyes suit nearly every colour, we recommend going for purple if your eyes are more golden brown. Hazel eyes work with purple, red and brown tones.
W: Which celebs can we look to for classic hair and eye combos and the lipsticks that suit best?
I: If you have red hair and green eyes, think Emma Stone – she is always flawless with a matte red lipstick! Blonde hair and blue-eyed beauties should look to Blake Lively, who usually chooses warm pinks/oranges and reds. Dark hair and dark eyes can be inspired by Queen Bey, who pulls off everything from dramatic plum/purple hues to nude glossy lips!
