While brown hair could work on Gwyneth, here she’s gone too dark and too warm, working against her naturally cool undertones. The dark eye and brown lip add to the overall impression of ghostly pale skin.
Here Gwyneth has highlighted her hair, but not more than a few shades from her natural colour, so it works. She keeps her skin dewy, features soft and lip colour creamy pink — all perfect for summer and the combined effect makes her eyes pop.
This blonde is too light for Mischa’s colouring, and the strong red lip is preventing her natural beauty from shining through.
What a difference! She has kept to her natural warm, golden brown tones in her choice of make-up, hair and clothes and she looks absolutely stunning. Mischa is simply glowing here.
This is an example of how lightening your hair more than two shades can make your skin look sallow. On top of that, Sandra’s eyes appear too deep for her new hair colour – there’s no balance.
This look’s make-up is very similar to the less-good one, yet creates a completely different effect. The richness of Sandra’s hair now complements her eyes and she is in perfect harmony – her skin appears creamy and more youthful.
With Amy’s hair up, she loses the warmth that radiated from it and it appears ashy, making her skin look ashy too. The black of her dress also does nothing to help lift her complexion, nor does the coolness of the earrings.
Amy looks radiant here with warmer hair. Although she is wearing only neutral colours, because the undertone is correct, they enrich her creamy warm complexion to perfection.
