MC TIP:  Blue-based magenta and wine shades with subtle sparkle combat the ashy undertones of darker complexions.


MC TIP:  Sheer mauve gloss looks gorgeous with peach blush and balances ruddiness in fair skin.


<<Punch up brown hair (left) with warm neutrals and bright, get-noticed jewel tones, advises celeb makeup artist Andrew Sotomayor.


>>Jet-black hair (this page) natually frames the face to make way for flattering, deeper makeup shades of berry and violet.


MC TIP:  Apply a cool tone to your lids to get a pretty doe-eyed effect that's not too "done."


18.  URBAN DECAY 24/7 Glide-On Shaow Pencil in Mercury


MC TIP:  Plums can appear gray against tan skin, so opt for shadows with pinkish undertones.






12.  URBAN DECAY Afterglow Glide-On Cheek Tint in Score, $24


MC TIP:  Use a neutral primer on lips before applying a pale-pink stain to banish redness from fair complexions.


MC TIP:  Dusty rose shades give skin a feminine glow without looking muddy.


>>Redheads don't have to stick to matchy-matchy hues of crimson anymore, says Sotomayor.  Instead, he recommends contrasting fiery locks with powder-pink stains for a vintage-meets-modern look.  Or go bold with opaque tints of tangerine on lips and cheeks.


MC TIP:  To avoid a totally monochromatic coral palette, define eyes with rich copper shadows and a chocolate liner.


MC TIP:  Apricot gloss makes for a subtle glow, but choose one with a warm tint to avoid a washed-out look.
