We love a bold look on occasion, but we’re all about the less-is-more approach when it comes to everyday beauty. That’s why we’re making the case for the same no-fuss color palette on our eyes, lips and cheeks for a fresh take on minimalist makeup. Not sure which shade is right for you? Here, we’re breaking down the best colors for your skin tone.

Fair Skin: Peachy Pink

Whether it’s eye shadow or blush, peachy pink hues most closely resemble your natural flush. Stick to sheer formulas for that “I woke up like this” vibe. Hint: You can even use the same tint on your eyes, lips and cheeks.

Beige Skin: Dusty Rose

Since you have a little more color than your super-fair friends, something with a tiny bit more pigment looks the most natural. Think flushed from the wind or just back from the beach.

Olive Skin: Apricot

Colors that skew orange will give your skin a boost and ensure your features don’t get lost. As previously mentioned, stick to sheer washes for the most believable look.

Bronze Skin: Shimmery Peach

A tiny bit of shimmer only enhances your natural sun-kissed glow (matte hues will look a little muddy on your bronzed complexion). Something on the warm side, like peach, will give definition where you need it without overwhelming your face.

Tan Skin: Berry

Softer pinks might wash you out, but berries will make you look alive. Don’t shy away from something a little bright—when mixed with your skin tone, it looks more natural than you'd think.

Brown Skin: Golden Champagne

Bronzey shimmer will give your rich skin tone a little pop of highlight without making it look too pearly. Sweep some on your cheekbones, brow bones and cupid's bow and you're good to go.

Dark Skin: Terra-Cotta Red

Juxtaposed with your deep complexion, it livens up your skin without overpowering it. As for lips, a sheer lipstick or stain is the perfect way to fake a natural flush.
