I used to be afraid of wearing red and pink because I thought they would wash me out. As it turns out, red and pink are equal opportunity colors, but you need to be aware of what shades to wear with your skin tone season.
First things first, let’s identify your skin tone:
Complexion: blue or pink undertones
Skin: pale white, yellowish-olive, or dark
Hair: generally brunettes but sometimes natural white-blondes fall in this category
Eyes: dark colored
Other hints: a lot of contrast between hair color, eye color and skin tone, many Asians and African Americans fall into this category
Complexion: cool blue or pink undertones
Skin: is pale, pink, porcelain white
Hair: natural blondes, pale skin brunettes
Other hints: low level contrast between eyes and hair
Complexion: golden undertones
Skin: ruddy with orange tones
Hair: redheads and brunettes
Eyes: golden brown eyes
Other hints: a lot of depth to their coloring and a spicy, earth tone quality to their hair color, eye color, and skin tone. varied coloring – ranging from golden blondes to brunettes and black hair coloring. Red-heads, excluding very fair auburn and strawberry blondes, are usually autumns. All red-heads are autumn or spring’s. Red-headed autumns often have porcelain white or very pale skin.
Complexion: golden undertones and are usually creamy white or peach
Hair: straw-colored or strawberry red hair,
Skin: freckles, rosy cheeks
