Whether you're a beauty aficionado or an amateur, who wouldn't want a few cheat codes in their make-up routine to ensure they look fabulous? We all know how tricky it can be to find our perfect shade, and trends may come and go, but that doesn't mean that they're meant to suit us all. So, to make life a tad bit easier for you, we put together an awesome list of make-up products that look good on everyone - we're not kidding! These trends and shades are universally flattering, whether you're warm-toned or cool-toned with yellow undertones or blue or pink, you need to read on, girl.
1. Coral Charm
Confused about the perfect shade of blush for you? Well, you can't go wrong with coral, it's a versatile colour with neither red nor yellow undertones, so it creates a lovely, brightening effect on most skin tones. For fairer skin, apply it with a light hand and for deeper skin tones, you can create a nice flush with a heavier hand. NARS Orgasm is a blush that has reached cult status for complimenting every skin tone, Benefit Coralista is also a perfect coral shade and Lakme Absolute has the perfect shade too if you're looking for a cheaper option.
How much ever we love our reds and pinks, it's equally, or even more important to have a few different shades of nude in your beauty stash. Whether you want to go with a pinkish-nude or a brown-nude is up to you, but you can be assured that it will help bring your look together with a chic and polished edge. Nude lips paired with a bit of smudged kohl on the eyes is a combination that will never fail you! Nykaa Mattelicious Crayon Lipstick Lacy Luck in shade number 10 is a pick that will compliment anyone.
Dewy skin will never go out of style and a fab luminizer like the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick is a great match for any girl. Use it on your cheekbones, chin, bridge of your nose and forehead for an instantly illuminated effect. You can even try it on a no-make-up day just to amp up your skin and make it look oh-so-fresh.
Want to bring your eyes out with a look that's not OTT but chic? Taupe is your answer! This brownish-grey shade is a neutral one that will suit every skin tone on the colour spectrum and will also compliment every eye colour. Shade your lids with the colour taupe for a polished look, you can even use shimmery taupe for the evenings. Finish off with a dark brown liner instead of black to really complement it well. The Blushed Nudes Palette by Maybelline will be your go-to for nailing this look.
Pink is such a romantic shade that has a brightening effect on every skin tone. Light pink eyeshadow in the crease paired with a nude shade on the lids and white liner on the waterline can really help your eyes pop. A touch of pink on your cheeks will help bring a healthy-looking glow and a subtle shade of blush on your lips will help pull the whole look together. It's feminine, it's pretty and so flattering! A lip and cheek stain that is blendable is a great product to have for a natural look.
A touch of gold shadow mixed with shades of brown and copper for a glam smokey eye can look gorgeous on most skin tones, particularly on our Indian skin. Dab on some gold on the lids, you can blend it with copper around the corners and a warm brown on the crease for a look that is perfect for the next night out or wedding function. Don't forget to finish off with black liner and a generous coat of mascara. We found you the perfect eyeshadow palette from NYX to ace this look.
Matte lips may come and go but a glossy pout is an evergreen. A pearlised gloss will give you a neutral lip that looks equally great on fair skin as it does on wheatish and dusky tones. If you're looking for more colour then a berry-hued gloss is another example that compliments all skin tones well. These should be in your bag at all times to help amp up your pout in a jiffy.
