In last Wednesday's post we talked about how wearing the right colors can really make your natural features pop, and hopefully take some of the scary out of incorporating bold colors into your wardrobe. The first step was deciphering your skin tone, and I put you all into four groups, which I'll re-post below:
- Group 1: For those of you out there with pale, dark or olive skin and hair that's black, dark or white blonde, usually your undertones are blue or a rosy pink.
- Group 2: Those with creamy/peachy skin and hair that's auburn, golden or strawberry blonde usually have gold-yellow undertones in their skin, freckles and a lighter eye color.
- Group 3: Those with skin shaded in peach, beige and golden brown and hair that's red, red-brown, dark blonde, rich brown or brown-black tend to have golden undertones in their skin and darker eye colors.
- Group 4: Those with pale or pink-toned skin, blonde or light- to medium-brown hair usually have skin undertones of pale blue or pale pink.
The Match Game
Group 1: Sharp, Stark & Icy
Do wear: white, black, navy blue, red, bright pink and icy tones.
Don't wear: beige, orange, gold or pastels
Group 2: Keepin' It Light
Do wear: pastels (rose, soft blue, lavender), neutrals and plum.

Group 3: Worth Your Weight in Gold
Do wear: golden undertones (camel, beige, orange, gold and dark brown).
