What colors work best for you?

by Anginelle Victor

Do you ever wonder whether a color works well for you? Well, this November, you will learn how to find clothes that match your undertone. First and foremost, you must know whether you have a warm, cool, or neutral undertone. You can always look up ways or ask any beautician you know, but a common way to find out is by looking at your veins. If your veins have more of a greenish hue, you have a warm undertone. If it is blue or purple, then you have a cooler undertone. If your veins' color is more like the color of your skin, then you have a neutral undertone. This method might be a little harder for people with darker skin, but if you look closely, you can tell. Another way to identify your undertone is to look at your face. Take a white sheet of paper and compare it to your face. If your face appears more pink or rosy, you have a cool undertone. If it appears more yellow, your undertone is warm.

Now that you have established your undertone, you need to find colors that match. For people who have cool undertones, you would look good in various hues of emerald, dark purple, lavender, pink, icy blue, and bright blues. On the other hand, colors that will not look the best on you are black, orange, and earth tones. Pastels work great with cooler-toned people. For my warm-toned people, colors such as green, brown, mustard, and warmer red shades look amazing on you. But you should avoid colors such as pure white and black. Some pastel shades would give you a pale and sickly look. For those with neutral undertones, you guys have the most flexible undertones. So, the colors that look best on you are dusty pinks, medium greens, jade, light peach, and lagoon blue. Off-white, grays, and coffee hues bring out your best features, but you should avoid black and navy.

With that said, how dark or light your complexion is can make you look better in some colors than others. When you are choosing what colors to wear, make sure to take that into account. Lastly, I would encourage you to go out and try some of these tips and colors because you will never know what will look good on unless you try. Always remember the best way to wear anything is with confidence.
