I offer makeup recommendations for your Color Code because women who wear makeup are seen as more professional, put-together and as having an attention to detail. The women I talk to report that they feel more confident when they wear makeup. And if you’re going to make the effort to put makeup on, you want it to be the right colors for your complexion, right? I know women stand in the makeup aisle of their favorite store feeling completely overwhelmed so here are my makeup recommendations for your Color Code.

To start with, if you don’t know your Color Code…

  2. If you’re local to the Phoenix area, come to my home studio in Chandler, AZ for a full Phoenix Color Analysis with Signature Color and MakeUpdate HERE
  3. Read my blog post called Introducing…your Color Code

There are TWO makeup lines I stand behind and I love that both are direct sales companies so your purchase supports a woman in business!

I also recommend my Warm vs. Cool: Look Good In Any Color video HERE.

The suggestions I am offering you below come straight from Shari Braendel’s book Help Me, Jesus! I Have Nothing To Wear!

Onto my makeup recommendations for your Color Code!

These are products EVERY category should use:


Primer helps give a flawless finish, helps makeup last longer and often has SPF.


Whether powder or liquid, something to even out the skin tone is vital. Go with as little coverage as you need to avoid looking flat or fake.


Black work on virtually everyone. If you are a LIGHT, SOFT or WARM, a brown-black might work. Blue or purple are fun, too!


A cream shadow or eyelid primer gives your eye makeup a great foundation and can even be worn on its own in a pinch.


Everyone looks good in beiges and neutral browns.

Here are suggestions for specific eye colors.


Brown shimmer, brown matte, peach, taupe.


Brown matte, brown shimmer, beige, plum, violet.


Rose matte or shimmer, peach, gray, brown matte or shimmer.
