Going against the grain

So one question that I'm asked a lot is "What colors should I wear?" I always ask back "Well, what colors do you like?" Usually those colors are the ones that look the best on us. However, some people have an idea what they like but think they "should" wear something else. I say "abandon such thoughts!" Go against the grain!! If you love purple and you think you shouldn't wear it maybe try a deeper shade of eggplant swept thinly just above the lash line. If you love pink, there are beautiful cream blushes that can pull beautiful color on everyone. You just need to experiment with tone and application. I always say "start small and build up" until you feel comfortable.
