With a clear complexion and shiny dark hair set off by perfect grooming, a brunette has a fine start. But to complete the picture, she must know her color schemes. There are warm brunettes and cool brunettes, and a girl must know to which side she belongs.
The most famous example of the cool group is the Irish type - black or dark brown hair, milky skin, pink cheeks, blue eyes. She looks best with creamy powder, rose rouge and lipstick, black mascara, blue eye shadow. She wears blue beautifully in every shade except harsh, bright blue. Powder blue is especially becoming. Black and navy are good basic colors for her, and she can wear purple bluish orchid, turquoise, gray, rose, ruby, and emerald.
Then there is the dark-haired, brown-eyed girl whose medium skin has lots of pink in it. Her best make-up is a pinky rachel powder, medium bluish red rouge and lipstick, black mascara, brown, purple, or green eye shadow. She like her "cool" sister avoids brown and chooses black or navy as her basic color. She looks well in bluish greens, bright jade green, warm pinkish gray, deep blue, pure soft yellow, crimson, American Beauty, wine, and all the deep bluish reds.
