Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Intense Color Wheel

Make Up For Ever, Rouge Artist Intense, color wheel, shade selectorLet’s say, theoretically, that you don’t have time to sit down with Dany Sanz herself, and let her make a few Rouge Artist Intense shade recommendations for you.

No worries! Make Up For Ever has created a handy shade wheel, to help steer you toward your best colors. The wheel offers four skintones (pink, beige, olive, and golden) and four hair colors (golden blonde, platinum/black/white, red, and brown). Simply match up your skintone and hair color, and the wheel will suggest your best pinks, reds, and nudes.

Not sure which skintone to choose? Well you could read through these resources I collected, but I also just heard a new way to identify one’s skintone: press a finger to the top of your arm for a few seconds. When you lift it, the spot will either look a bit yellow (beige), pink splotchy (pink), slightly brown (golden) or slightly green (olive). Does it work for you?

Anyway, I thought I’d republish the shade guide, in case your store doesn’t have a wheel.

    WOW! Thank you so much Karla! This is extremely helpful as I do most of my MUFE orders online!

  • linda says:

    I am so disappointed these lipsticks have BHT which is a cheap preservative that low end brands like NYX use. I expected better ingredients at this price point and from a high end brand. SUCKS.

  • Helena says:

    What if I have, say, purple hair? xD

  • Peggy says:

    I have pale,beige skintone and light brown ashy hair.The colours that suggests suit me as long as I can imagine. I have similar lippies that rock on me.If they come out at my local department store I would go for 1,4,46(looks amazing)Check them first though.

    Just bought 7, and 6 and according to this,neither one is supposed to look good on me. Do I return them? I’ve noticed a lot of colors here are not represented. I bought 28 too and I love that one, but I am a big matte fan.

  • jane says:
