For the daytime

Colors to try: pink, peach, body tones, fruity tones or wild berries.

Colors to avoid: all dark tones.

Do not wear heavy makeup during the day. Aside from looking out of place you are running the risk of highlighting your defects and worst features.

For the night

Colors to try: bright red, bright pink, beige.

Colors to avoid: there are no such colors. All shades of lipstick are allowed for the evenings.

The evening is the time for you to shine. Just do not go overboard. If you use a lipstick in vibrant, intense colors, keep your eye makeup neutral, or else you will look fake and tacky.

For teenagers

Colors to try: pink, peach, gloss.

Colors to avoid: all dark tones.

This is the time of life when you are supposed to experiment with your look and find out what looks best on you. While discovering your personal style, keep in mind that youth is beauty. Do not make yourself look older with heavy makeup and inappropriate colors. Highlight your freshness instead.

If you are older than 20

Colors to try: golden, fuchsia, sparkling red.

Colors to avoid: the ones which are not personally flattering.

Warm colors highlight the youthfulness. Use golden nuances for work and brighter tones for the evening. From time to time add a little shine to your makeup.

If you are over 30

You already know which colors look good on you and how you can bring out your best features.
