Which Colors Flatter Your Skin Tone?
If your skin is fair, it can have either warm, peachy undertones (usually with freckles, chestnut, red, golden blond or strawberry blond hair) or cool undertones (think Snow White or Reese Witherspoon- no color in your cheeks, ash blond, dark brown or black hair). You’ll want to determine your skins undertones before you match colors to your skin.
So,if you’re fair skinned with warm undertones, earth-tones will look great on you. Think any shade of brown (even pinkish-brown) and any shade of green- from olive to grass, emerald and lime. Ivory, navy and gray will also look really good on you- they’ll compliment your peachy undertones.
The lighter side of the red and orange families (think peach, apricot, light pink, rose pink or rose red) will work well. It’s all about flattering the subtle red undertone in your skin.
You’ll want to stay away from very bright colors and neons- they’ll clash with your skin. Black will be too dark and harsh, and white is too pale and can make you look sickly.
If you’re fair skinned with cooler undertones, you look great in the berry family. Think strawberry or deep red, raspberry pink, boysenberry and deep purple. It creates a nice contrast with your skin and can bring out a hint of color in your cheeks.
Jewel tones can also really flatter your skin. Think emerald, turquoise and amethyst.
As for metallics, stay away from silver and stick with gold.
You’ll want to stay away from shades that are too bright and light. White will make you look too pale, and black will give you a goth vibe. Neons, yellows, and lilac won’t bring out the best in your skin, either.
