BEAUTY BAR: How Many Shades of Gray?

This Fashionista kept it cool and simple for the rainy weather: “I didn’t want to waste contour on a gloomy day.” The fashionable mom-to-be stayed true to neutrals and a sleek puff ponytail. “My hair is naturally curly so I usually just wear it out in a ‘fro style, but today I thought I’d try a pony.” The Fashionista unknowingly paid homage to the 1960s with this adorable hairstyle, reminiscent of Diana Ross and the Supremes. Her makeup was on the minimal side, focused primarily on her eyes. The mom-onista focused on highlighting her eyebrows which were complemented by darkened eyeliner, while her lipstick was neutral.

Her palette consisted of soft tones, which she believed complemented her best. “I love grayscale, in my makeup and in my clothes. I just feel like it complements my skin the best.” And it showed, with her frayed gray shawl and gray burnout tee, the Fashionista kept it simple by using black Hunter rain boots and black leggings as a background color to her gray pallet. The gray balances the tone of her caramel skin and works softly, almost unnoticeable in contrast to her skin tone. That’s the best part about neutrals and flesh tone: it’s not just finding a color that’s exactly to your skin, but finding one that draws attention to your natural color against the makeup. It’s all about balance and highlights. The ponytail spoke of effortlessness and style.

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR: Neutrals don’t always mean skin tone! While flesh colors are the best colors, there are other ways to celebrate your skin! It’s all about finding harmony where colors have no end. To achieve this, there are several color pallets both flesh tone and darker tones. To achieve the sleek ponytail, all you need is hair wax, which is good for maintaining a sleek look and a TRESemmé holding mousse for long-lasting curls!
