Makeup for professional women is as important as their outfit. An appropriate makeup is one that is well blended and looks minimal. Women who wear too much makeup or too garish colors are considered to have as poor an image--or worse--than women who wear none. A natural, blended makeup is one that gives you a fresh look without calling excessive attention to it. If you do not like to wear makeup or have never worn it, begin with blush and lipstick. A lipstick affects the look of your eyes. Look at yourself before you apply lipstick and pay attention to your eyes. It is vital that you select a lipstick that is in harmony with your coloring. Now, apply your flattering lipstick and focus on your eyes again and see the effect it has on them; they will look brighter and sparkling.
Wearing blush and lipstick are essential to achieving a professional makeup look. Therefore, be sure that the colors you choose complement your coloring. Have you ever seen a person with golden skin, golden green eyes and medium brown hair with gold highlights wearing fuchsia lipstick? When you look at her all you focus on is the lipstick which, even if her clothes are professional and exquisitely put together, breaks the harmony of the total look.
When choosing your makeup, follow your natural coloring. Consult with a certified Image Consultant to learn the right colors for your make up. Some common sense applies when choosing shades for a particular outfit. For example, when wearing red, wear the version of red that complements you, either a true, blue red (cool), or a yellow red (warm). If your coloring is in the "deep" category, wear red lipstick when you wear red, black or green. If your outfit has olive green, maroon, brown, peach, coral or any golden tones, avoid lipsticks in pink, rose or fuchsia, even if you do look good in those shades.
