Certain colours can really bring out the best in you.
Colours interact with your skin tone. If they go well together they can make you look healthy and animated. If they don`t blend, you end up looking insipid and ill.
Don`t we all hold on to some old clothes only because we always look nice in them? No matter how old or simple those clothes are, we know they bring out the best in us.
Pay more attention to those colours. Those are the kind of colours your skin takes on well. And has you reaping compliments.
When a colour suits you you look younger and livelier. Your skin looks healthier. And your eyes brighten up. The result you look your beautiful best.
When a colour doesn`t suit you your skin looks flawed. Your eyes look dull, even weary. You look older and not so healthy. The result if you`re expecting compliments to come your way, you`re going to be disappointed.
Skin tones are a result of a combination of melanin, carotene and haemoglobin in our blood.
Each of us has a unique skin tone. We`re born that way. And it doesn`t change. It merely deepens with tan.
This is how colours work for us. The primary colours are red, blue and yellow. Yellow is warm and blue is cold.
If your skin tone takes on yellow, you have warm undertones. If on the other hand, your skin tone takes on blue, you are said to have cool under tones.
So, based on your skin tone, you will look your best in colours that are either yellow based or blue based.
If you don`t know what colours suit you, take a fresh look at your clothes when you get a lot of compliments. You`ll get a fair idea how to go about it.
