The right kind of makeup depends on traits such as eye color, skin tone and lip size along with personal preference, affordability and availability. The formality of the occasion also often dictates the most suitable makeup.
Different features typically require different makeup and benefit from different types of enhancement. People with large lips, for example, should avoid bright colors, as they may exaggerate the size of lips. On the other hand, lighter colors and pearly glosses give thin lips a fuller look.
Makeup should also be modified for the occasion it is being worn for. Everyday and casual makeup tends to be simple and light, whereas date night makeup usually puts emphasis on either the eyes or the lips for a more dramatic look.
