“We women are so different. But one similar for sure – always want to look perfect, happy to emphasize their dignity and skillfully hide the flaws. And hair color plays an important role.
Understand what makeup suits brunettes and what to look for when choosing makeup, dark-haired girls. As a makeup artist (and a brunette) I admit – these girls are extremely lucky, because unlike the blonde, the makeup they can use rich vibrant colors and look as natural as possible. Due to the high contrast accents in make-up dark-haired ladies should be bright emerald green or blue smoky eyes do look mysterious, and determined to make a bright accent on the lips, get ready to be the Queen of the night”.

When the palette was in my hands immediately began experiments and came to the conclusion: Yes, it would fit because the shade of red (the brightest color in the palette) is here with a brownish undertone.
Except red it is a dark brown and light brown, and beige (like the color of creme brulee).

“This shade is called Ketione, as the eponymous brand is my favorite singer Keti Topuria. Especially for her I made an ultra-trendy caramel-coffee color on each looks very individual. On someone he seems more cold to someone and not caramel… But with this shade you have to be very careful to women with dark circles under the eyes – they also often have brown pigment, and lipstick can strengthen. What to do in this situation? Just use a quality concealer! The second point which you should pay attention to the color of the enamel.
