Want Makeup That Works With Your Hair, Whether It's Long Or Short? Here's How!

No matter what haircut you have, consider it when choosing your makeup look!

Looking for a go-to look that’s super-flattering with your haircut? Read on for tips for any style!

  • For Bangs: Make your eyes pop! Bangs, especially the eye-grazing length, can cover your eyes and make them seem lost behind a curtain of hair! To keep this from happening, use eyeliner to enhance your upper and lower lash lines, and don’t be afraid of experimenting with shimmery shadows and fun eyeliner colors!
  • For Short Hair: Define your brows! Short hair really shows off the face, especially the forehead and eye areas. With this length, it’s important to take care of your eyebrows and shape them well. You can also accentuate your brows with eyebrow pencil, which will add definition and enhance your natural brow color.
  • For Shoulder-Length Hair: Accentuate your lips! Shoulder-length hair can be classic or sultry, depending on how you style it. Because it’s a pretty simple style, you can shake it up a bit with bold makeup choices. Our favorite for this length is a dramatic lipstick choice, which draws the eye to the bottom of your hair and shows off your cut brilliantly!
  • For Long Hair: Focus on your cheeks! With long hair, sometimes your face shape gets a little bit lost. Particularly for hair that doesn’t have a lot of layering around the face, it’s so important to add some contour and structure to your face using blush or bronzer. Being generous with these products means that, even with long hair, your cheekbones will still look dramatic and gorgeous!
