Choosing make up

different looks for different moods

By Maree Chavez - April 19, 2019

Well...another month has gone by and it's given me more opportunity to get to know this silver haired girl I see in the mirror.

It's brought a couple of new things to my attention including make up choice. At first I thought I would have to find that perfect color that would go with my new hair color palette...but to my surprise, I have found that there is not ONE perfect color....it's about different LOOKS.

It's been fun to take the time to experiement with one make up change at a time. Going more neutral feels really soft and subtle....almost dreamy.......whereas, a bold lip ignites more drama.

So far, if I go BOLD in the makeup I'll go more simple in dress..blocked colors and or solids.

Neutral make up?? Then I go with patterns, texture and color...perhaps more pop in jewelry too.

In this photo example, The nude lip was paired with a BOLD colored pearl necklace and a PLUM blouse with a jean jacket.

Today, I am wearing a solid black T with a really bright, bold fuschia lip.

SOOOOO the moral of this story for me is,,,try not to get stuck in the 'there's only one way' to compliment silver/gray hair with  make up. Bold/bright and neutral both have a place in this new look---it's about experimenting and taking time to get to know this silver spectrum:)
