High Visual Weight vs. Low Visual Weight

"Low and high visual weight" is a method used to consider which makeup look best matches you. If you are high visual weight, you suit bolder and more colorful makeup looks that use dramatic techniques to stricken the appearance. If you have a low visual weight, clean or softer makeup looks are best suited for you. Low visual weight makeup looks focuses on your natural features and can give the impression that you have no makeup on.

Consider what colors suit you

When deciding the color of your makeup, hair color or clothes, knowing what colors suit you can make a world of a difference. By focusing on color, you can brighten your whole face and pull together your outfit.

One of the ways you can find out what colors suit you is by getting a color analysis done. Color analysis is where a person helps you decide what colors look the best on you. They provide their opinion and explain why certain colors fit you and why other colors don't fit you.

Another way to determine what colors match you is using your primary skin shade. For example, lighter colors may wash out people with lighter skin compared to someone with darker skin and vise-versa with darker clothing.

Jewelry can tie together your whole outfit and add personality. It can compliment your features in a way that clothes otherwise can't. When considering what type of jewelry to wear you should consider if gold or silver compliments your skin.

To determine if gold or silver looks better on you, you have to identify your undertone. People with warmer undertones suit gold jewelry better, while silver jewelry looks best on cooler undertones. To find your undertone you have to look at the color of your veins on your wrist. Veins that appear a greenish color mean you have warm undertones while if they appear a bluish color you have cool undertones. If you have a mixture of the two colors, both gold and silver would look good on you.
