Makeup Shades That Look Great on Everyone
Finding the right product is easy with this guide to colors that work with all skin tones.
Universal Shades for Eyes
“Stick to mossy shades,” says New York City makeup artist Kristofer Buckle. Those with yellow and brown tones are wearable for fair and dark skins alike.
“Look for a navy with royal blue tones in it,” says Los Angeles makeup artist Karen Kawahara. “This gives a smoky look on light skins, and it’s dense enough for dark ones.”
A buttery, yellow-toned color with a translucent texture allows natural coloring to show through, which is key to making a shade like this universally flattering.
For the most wearable choice, pick a brown that has a touch of warmth to it. This one looks natural on dark and olive skin and subtly contrasts fairer complexions.
Pick golds that are bronzy, like this, and not too yellow, says Los Angeles makeup artist Tina Turnbow. Tones that are too yellow make all skins look sallow.
Gray is an unexpected alternative to black. Use iridescent versions that reflect light. Shades like this one give fair skin depth and look beautiful on darker skin.
