How to find which colors work best for you can be an easy process. Finding great colors starts with your skin and the three basic categories of skin tones; warm, cool, and neutral.
How to find which colors work best for you also starts with different colored fabrics. You can use the clothes you have or go to a local store. While using a mirror, I want you to put different colors up against your skin to see how you look. Some colors will make you glow and feel happy and others may make you look sullen and dark. It works best if you do this while standing near natural light but do what you can with what you have.
If you feel as though you have golden undertones in your skin the colors that work best for you could fall in the warm category and you can start with colors like warm yellows, gold, and oranges. You might also try olive, turquoise, deep greens and/or deep reds. Some neutrals to try against your skin are taupe and a creamy white.
If you feel you have a bluish undertone in your skin the colors that work best for you could be in the cool category and you can start with colors like deep emerald green, a bright or royal blue, and other colors like deep purple might work well. You could also try shades of pink and deep reds like ruby along with neutrals like gray and navy.
If you are not sure if you’re a warm or cool person then try the colors in the neutral category to see if those colors work best for you. Colors in the neutral category are light pastels like pinks, soft blue and a mint green. Some other colors to try are taupes, off white, and grays.
Finding which colors work best for you can be hit or miss and you need to keep in mind there are lots of different shades each color so you want to be sure try different shades of each color up against your skin. For example, a person can look fabulous in a turquoise or emerald green but horrible in mint green. Another example is a client that looks great in a light charcoal grey but very sullen in a dark grey.
If you’re still not sure about how or where to start then feel free to reach out via email or book an appointment. I would love to help you find the right colors for you so you can look good, feel good, have more confidence and add more color to your wardrobe.
