Although grey may seem like an extreme hair color, makeup doesn't have to be outrageous. The good thing about grey is that it looks wonderful with all types of skin; no wonder why we all get gray hair when we get old. Picking the right makeup for your new hair color is just as important as choosing the right hair cut.

Usually people with fair skin go for a supple white while people with cool undertones choose a brighter white tone. Now it's time to pick some great makeup colors for gray hair! Are you ready?

When talking about makeup for grey hair and specifically lipsticks, there are indeed some colors that will make a statement and others that can expose the sweet girl you have inside. Red is a color that looks amazing on every skin tone and hair color, but there are specific shades of red that will make your gray locks stand out.
If you want to achieve a soft look with your gray hair, go for pink and apricot shades as they will easily illuminate your face. For a more dramatic look, and this is something girls usually do when they just got their new look, is choosing a maroon or brown color. Dark tones create a contrast with your hair but they are definitely a color you should wear at night.

Dark eyeshadows always look great with grey hair. You can try with colors like purple, charcoal, and other bright colors such as green and blue. However, if you are looking for a more relaxed look, try out brown and chocolate.
