Technically you can create colour combinations by mixing and matching colours in your colour palette. You can combine your accent colours with your basic colours or dark or light neutral colours.
Your palette has soft, muted, medium-value colours with cool blue undertones.
You have medium contrast in your features, we recommend you choose monochromatic or analogous combinations, which means combining the different shades of the same colour (such as light blue and darker blue) or neighbouring colours (such as pink and lavender).
Avoid clear and bright colours, high contrast, and bold combinations (complementary, triadic or tetradic); otherwise, you look washed out behind your outfit.
Since you have a cool and soft appearance, neutral colours perfectly harmonize your natural look. Pair light neutral with darker accents or dark neutrals with lighter accents to achieve a medium level of contrast. Black is not in your palette cause it’s too dark for you. Try deep gray shades instead of black. White is also too bright for you; you can choose other light neutrals or pastel pinks in your colour palette for your combinations.
Since your natural look has medium contrast, your patterns should reflect the same. Your colour palette has medium-value colours meaning neither dark nor light. Choose the same colours in your palette for your patterns and prints.
Medium-scale, loosely arranged and light colour patterns such as flowers, watercolour designs and other loosely arranged designs. Avoid too dense, sharp, and geometric patterns.

You have a cool skin complexion with blue undertones. You should choose a similar foundation colour to your skin tone, preferably the ones with pink-based, smooth, and matte finishes.
Blush colours should reflect your natural soft look. There are many different cool pink shades in your palette that you can choose. Matte finishes will blend with your skin tone naturally.
Your lipstick colours are blue-based pink tones. Avoid bright and warm colours; choose matte or slightly shimmer finishes.
Your soft and muted colour complexion must be repeated with your makeup colours. Therefore, matte and completely cool eye shadows would be better for you. Avoid bright and warm colours as well as glitter ones.
It’s better to choose eyeliners according to your eye colours, they should also blend with your eye shadow tones. Make sure that they are matte and not overly bright. Dark grays and blues are good choices for mascara.
