Color combinations:

  • Color Theory in Makeup (by Sharon Farrell) – a good introduction to color theory, for creating color combinations that work
  • Color Theory for Makeup (by Rebecca Shores) – a more in-depth post on color theory with lots of examples of different kinds of color combinations
  • Adobe Color CC and Paletton – interactive tools you can use to create color combinations

Face shapes:

  • Face shape flowchart to figure out your face shape (from The Beauty Department)
  • Face shape quiz – you’ll need to register on YouBeauty, then upload a picture of yourself. Your face may be a combination of shapes (for instance, both long and heart-shaped) – however, this quiz will only give you a single face shape as a result. It’s still pretty helpful.
