What are your best colours?

What Colors Suit Me?

Are you wearing your best colors? If not, you’re truly missing out on the power of color. Your best colors will give you a “wow” factor! They bring out your natural characteristics, minimize blemishes and create an overall balance.

 

Your coloring is based on the colors in your blood that show through your skin. This is called your undertone.  Your blood is made up of primary colors:

  • Hemoglobin is red
  • Melanin is blue
  • Carotene is yellow

Depending on the mixture in your blood, you get a specific coloring from the seasonal color palettes:

  • Autumn
  • Winter
  • Spring
  • Summer.

Each season has its own distinctive qualities:

  • Shade: dark or light
  • Undertone: cool/blue based or warm/yellow based
  • Intensity: (bright or muted/dull).

I recommend you get a professional to do your color analysis, but if you have a good eye for color, you can attempt to find your palette below.
