Hair color overhaul: What you should know about coordinating your beauty products

Call it a change in seasons or a collective desire to radically alter our appearances, but many ladies are taking the time to drastically change their hair color (and by extension, their makeup products).

Whether you're a seasoned professional in the realm of hair makeovers or just purchasing your first box of brunette hair dye, you should take the time to consider how this will affect your daily makeup routine. The eyeshadows and lipsticks you used as a blonde may not look as pretty with your new mane of strawberry locks. Besides this, your complexion (which is built to complement your natural coloring) may look jarring next to your newly-minted platinum blonde tresses.

To solve this issue, the Huffington Post's Napoleon Perdis recommends using highlighting techniques to soften your glow. "Gold and yellow undertones warm up the complexion and help to soften up your look," Perdis writes. "If there's a lot of contrast between your natural skin tone and your new darker tone, you may want to consider a foundation with light-diffusing properties for some subtle definition."

While you're at it, don't be afraid to experiment with different shades of blush. If you're having trouble making up your mind, try the Colorescience Global Corrector Palette. These five universal makeup shades are versatile enough to be used as a concealer, corrector, eyeshadow, highlighter, bronzer or foundation, so you can change your hair color to your heart's content.
