How to choose the Best Brown shade?

As a lash artist guiding clients through their lash extension choices, you might not immediately have a specific brown shade in mind. However, there are key aspects about your clients that serve as valuable cues.

Consider your client's complexion first - ask yourself, do they lean towards warm or cool tones?

Warm undertones have a yellow or golden hue, while cool undertones have a pink or blue undertone. Determining undertone can help you choose colors that flatter your client's complexion.

Here's how to approach it:
1. Skin Tone and Complexion
2. Eye Color and Natural Hair Color

A quick tip: Look at the veins on your client's wrist:

  • Green veins typically indicate a warmer skin tone,
  • while blue veins suggest cooler undertones.
  • A mix of both means they might have a more neutral coloring.

Another way is to look at eye color:

  • cool undertones are often paired with blue or green eyes,
  • while warmer undertones might align with brown eyes or golden flecks.

Once you've identified their undertone, you're better equipped to select a complementary shade. Here's a helpful guide: lighter brown shades for cooler skin tones and the reverse for warmer tones. If your client has a neutral tone, they can suit any shades of brown, though it's wise to avoid extremes of warmth or coolness.
