Finally! Makeup Options for Girls with Rainbow Hair Color

Virtually every beauty magazine and cosmetic website has tips for the “right makeup” for blondes, brunettes, and redheads. But what if you do not fall into any of those categories? What if your hair is, for example, vivid green or cotton candy pink? How do you find the makeup that is right for you?

Enter Lime Crime, a makeup company for those whose styles are more Rihanna or Demi Lovato than Audrey Hepburn or Jennifer Aniston. In addition to blue lipsticks and glitter eye makeup, their website offers a section called “Hairspiration.” On this page, you simply pick your wild hair color (sorry if you still have boring brown tresses), and it pops up with makeup options chosen by stylists to complement your chosen hue.

For example, if you have bright purple hair (such as Kelly Osborne’s), LimeCrime suggests a dark red pout such as their “Wicked” Velvetine liquid to matte lipstick. It is a look similar to that seen on Katy Perry when she was rocking a deep purple mane.

If you have dyed your hair steel grey, the site suggests a light pink lipstick called “Cashmere.” The site expands on this color name, playfully calling it, “Greige” (grey + beige). This kittenish combination echoes a similar look worn by Lady Gaga on the September 2010 issue of Vanity Fair, but it still looks very fresh today.

Want to see how a potential look works in real life? On the HairInspo page, there is a curated row of Instagram pics showcasing LimeCrime makeup fans with the chosen hair color/makeup pairings. You can see how real girls pair their own makeup with fun hair color and end up with a selfie-worthy look.

This trend is not about being “matchy-matchy” but rather about a younger and more inclusive view of beauty. By incorporating makeup pairings to go with bright orange, electric blue, and even mermaid-ombre hair color, LimeCrime is celebrating diversity and encouraging consumers to have fun with their looks, challenging them to go beyond the “Barbie doll” concept of beauty and express their personalities through makeup and haircolor.

LimeCrime is a brand with a conscience. Its products are vegan and cruelty-free. The company’s slogan is “Makeup for Unicorns,” or for women that are fun, adventurous, and, most of all, unique.

And what if the website has you wanting to dye your own tresses lavender or cerulean? LimeCrime is also getting into producing hair color.
