Mineral Makeup for Brunettes


Brunettes can be fair skinned with light eye colours or bisque or olive skin toned usually with brown eyes. 

We recommend the following mineral and natural makeup products as a guideline:

Powder Minerals – Even out skin tone; liquid foundation or powder minerals depending on skin type

BB Cream or Tinted Moisturiser for a natural, summer look

Concealer – to conceal under eye shadows or blemishes

BlusherPeach or rosy brown (warm, bisque or olive skin tones), cool rose or tawny pink (cool and fair skin tones)

Highlighter – Gold or peach (warm skin tone) silver (cool skin tone)

Brow pencil or powder – Cool or warm brown to match your hair tone


EyelinerBlack or brown

EyeshadowIvory, taupe and khaki are great natural shades for cool skin tones. While warmer skin tones suit cream and warm browns for every day. It will also depend on your eye colour. See our eye colour recommendations

Lipstick or Lip Gloss – Match with your blusher: berry or red (warm, bisque or olive skin tones) or mauve or berry (cool, neutral and fair skin tones)
