As your hair shade shifts, you'll want to select cosmetics thatcomplement your coloring. "Opt for cool tones in your makeup, whichbetter complement silver strands," says Joanna Schlip, a LosAngeles-based makeup artist for Physicians Formula. This meanspicking pewter instead of gold, taupe over cinnamon, and pinkrather than peach.

Eyes: If your eyes are blue, try a steel-gray eye shadow,Schlip says. We prefer Revlon ColorStay Mineral Eye Shadow in SmokyQuartz ($8.50), which pairs gunmetal with a highlight and accentshade. For green, brown, or hazel eyes, try a lavender shadow, suchas Maybelline New York Dream Mousse Shadow in Lilac Cloud ($6), acrisp, pale amethyst in a moist formulation that's kind toaround-eye skin. Regardless, finish with black mascara to defineeyes, Schlip says.

Lips: "Cool rose is better than warm peach for lips," Schlipsays. Try MAC Slimshine lipstick in Gaily ($14.50). Its nonsticky,moisturizing formula provides a slight shimmer.

Cheeks: Look for bronzer and blush with pink undertones.N.Y.C. New York Color Wheel Mosaic Face Powder in Rose Glow ($5)combines four complementary shades for a true-to-you flush.
