Are you wondering what a makeup capsule for your Color Code can do for you? Much like a capsule wardrobe, a makeup capsule…
- is a limited, mix-and-match palette of colors that suit your color code and all work together
- simplifies your makeup routine, often to just a handful of products that fit into one cosmetic bag or one drawer
- helps you create a signature look
- reduces the clutter of makeup you rarely or never wear
- saves time and money, especially when the products can be replaced one by one instead of being stuck with colors you never use
As you can imagine, a LIGHT Color Code would wear lighter colors including beige and taupe. A DEEP would go for deeper shades, especially berries. SOFT gals wear soft shades including rose gold and moss green. WARM ladies do the coppers and golds. My CLEAR beauties can go brighter and more bold and should also incorporate shine. COOL gals do great with pinks, purples and silvers.

Creating a makeup capsule for each Color Code is something I’ve wanted to do for years now because once my clients have their Color Analysis and Signature Color, they typically want to 1. go shopping 2. clean out their closet and/or 3. update their makeup.
Speaking of, I have a confession. I am a wannabe Soft or Clear Color Code. I love both and often wish I could embrace their colors. Alas I am a DEEP and, though I try to resist it, I look best in not only DEEP colors but DEEP shades of makeup. My friend Jen who is my makeup artist and Maskcara rep helped me realize the DEEP makeup look is a bit dramatic and I’m…not. I can be dramatic and love to embrace my elegant side but I’m also more light-hearted and my everyday look is more feminine, fun and fresh then it is glamorous. Nevertheless…
I look good when I embrace my Deep-ness and most ladies also look amazing when they wear the right makeup for their Color Code. I highly recommend at least trying it, especially as you work on updating your wardrobe colors!
Dressing for your Color Code includes everything from the pieces of your outfit to your bag and shoes to your contrast levels. Your makeup is the finishing touch!
Here I am not only in DEEP makeup but wearing a deep brown top to match my eyes AND deep-toned jewelry. It gives me hair, eyes and skin a “flow” and that’s what we want.
Take a look at the capsules I put together using Mary Kay makeup!
Just three eye shadows and a blush. You could wear one, two or all three eye shadows depending on your confidence level and style. I tried to pick a light shade for under the brow, a medium shade for in your crease OR for a more glamorous look, put the medium shade on your lid and the darkest shade in the crease. I’ll link my lipstick suggestion, too.
If you prefer a darker eye makeup look or a lighter blush, feel free to mix and match. These are just my suggestions.
Below are the product links to my Mary Kay website. Please remember every purchase helps me stay in business and also supports my Put On Love venture. You can also contact me directly to order or for more personalized suggestions.
If it’s been a while since you updated your makeup and especially if your hair color has changed recently, I highly recommend a MakeUpdate.
