Makeup Ideas For Hats

Hat Trick: 3 Makeup Looks For the Mad Hatter in You

Cold weather means it's time to pull out your favorite headwear. But what makeup works best when you're wearing a brim? Fedora, floppy, or fascinator — whatever your choice of hat this season, find out how to play up your cosmetics palette to match.

Coy kiss: A bold hat deserves an equally bold makeup statement. Apply a bright lipstick shade like British radio and TV presenter Sarah-Jane Crawford to balance out the look. This works especially well with floppy hats that cascade over the eyes.

Casually capped: Mad Men actress Abigail Spencer decided to go for a more natural makeup palette with her brown fedora. However, the slight flush on cheeks and lips is the perfect look for a daytime event, while extralong lashes draw the eye upward.

Eye candy: It's instinct to stray from eye makeup when your face is hidden under a wide brim, but why not take that opportunity to show off your peek-a-boo style? Try a swipe of matching shadow in a winged-out style on the lids. Model Tali Lennox paired her plum fedora with dark purple shadows and nude gloss. This combination will complement, not conflict with, your headwear.
