Gombre suits best brunettes and brown-haired women. Sadly, this type of colourisation is not recommended for blondes. What kind of make-up fits grey hair ends? The most appropriate are going to be brown, violet or claret colours of the lipstick; emphasise the look it with black eye liner on your eyes and apply mascara. Do gombre go well with highlights in other colours? Of course, yes. However, they need to be very subtle, match skin complexion and colour of your hair.
