same here, I don’t even do anything to my hair. Its not a priority lol, making sure I blend correctly IS

I don’t think about it either because I have black brown hair with caramel highlights with brown eyes. Anything goes for me too.

I’m a hair color chameleon so parts of my makeup definitely change with each new color. I’m uber pale so when I’m platinum blond I have to wear more makeup because my face is the same color as my hair. When it’s dark or red I wear less makeup because the contrast makes even the slightest bit of makeup stand out. The hardest part is making sure the eyebrows always match

I tend to wear more bronze-y colors when my hair is lighter. I just went from a a brownish honey blonde color to a blackish red. I also have dred locs and wear glasses. That’s a lot going on, so I try at the very least to not clash with my hair color.

Me either, I don’t even think about my hair color. Of course some colors will match your hair (together with skintone) better than others, but I think it doesn’t keep you from wearing any color you like. Be it black, burgundy, brunette, blond or red, even pink.

When I’m blonde I feel like I’m a bit washed out & have 2 wear heaviEr eye makeup, but not super bright colors. When my hair is black I don’t need as much , but I can pull off crazy bright colors. With my natural color (med/light brown I can wear either. Lips are the complete opposite. Blonde I prefer more nude colors, black hair I prefer darker or bolder colors & brunette I wear either.

I usually don’t think about my hair color except certain cases. If I have just dyed it and it’s really dark I make sure to use blush/bronzer to counteract looking pale. When my hair is really blonde I also do the same so I don’t look washed out.

I don’t think about it either, and even if I had hair that might clash with my makeup (I have medium-dark brown, green eyes), I’m not sure I’d care… I wouldn’t want to limit myself & creativity! 🙂

When I was in college, I dyed my hair a lot. It has been hot pink, purple, blue, and red (not all at once though). It definitely affected my choices in makeup! It could be a challenge working with color. Although, now my hair is back to natural black and I never really think about my hair color.

It never really occurred to me to consider my hair colour. I’m more concerned about m/u items clashing with my warm-tanned skin tone.

Unless my hair color changes drastically (i.e, blonde to brunette or vice versa), I don’t really consider it to be an issue. I do notice, however, that when you find that PERFECT hair color that just lights up your complexion and eyes, you don’t need to wear as much makeup to look glowing and gorgeous.

Just my two cents!

Big time. My hair is a very light almost silver blonde so I always make sure my make-up is not too dark or harsh because heavy make-up with hair this light could easily make me look cheap!

When my hair was lighter… i’d typically do my eyemakeup lighter just so it wouldn’t overpower and look too harsh. Now that my hair is dark… i do really gothy/smokey eyes everyday! Hmm… dark hair is definitely for me because I feel more creative with my eyes!

It’s not so much that I avoid colors so much as I can get away with colors. I have flaming red hair and I can wear yellow/orange eyeshadow as my “neutral, go-to” look. I joked about my peacock taste in eyeshadow while wearing orange/yellow/sparkly eyeshadow at work and everyone just said “It matches your hair; it looks good!”

Same here. With bright red hair, oranges are practically neutrals. And a lot colors that are neutrals for others, like ashy browns and black eyeliner, look really harsh.

I think hair color does affect makeup! My natural color is medium/light brown and I just dyed it dark brown. My makeup looks much prettier now and the colors are more intense.

I just went from my natural brown hair to dying it to a dark red wine/burgundy color. I’ve noticed that I definately avoid certain blushes and bronzers now due to my new hair hue! I’ve even toned down my naturally golden complexion to more of a light beige because my hair color was making my skin look more yellow than I prefer. And of course, the dark my hair color, the darker my eyebrow pencil will be in the end aswell…
