Knowing what colors suit you best is a great help when you go shopping, when you are looking for a new haircut or to find the makeup that look better in you.
Choosing the wrong shades can lead you to look pale or with dark circles. That's why knowing your colorimetry makes you look younger and healthier.
The first step to find the colors that suit you is to define if your temperature is warm or cold. A fun way to do this is with the gold and silver test. You can easily do it with a necklace, earrings or some garment in these tones. Knowing which one fits you best will give you an idea of your temperature. The one that gives more light to the face is the one that favors you. If you look better in gold it means that you are warm, while if you look better in silver then your temperature is cold. If after the gold and silver test you are still in doubt, consider whether or not you tan in the sun. Generally, cold skins do not tan and take on a reddish color. On the other hand, warm skins do tan and turn golden.
If you are a cold temperature person these are the colors that you have left:
- Bluish green
- Gray Black
For jewelry, consider the following shades:
- Pink gold
If you are a warm temperature person, your colors are:
In jewelry the best shades for you are:
Just as this knowledge is useful when dressing, it can also benefit you when you want to change your look. For example, if you are warm, a golden blonde will look good on you.
If you are of cold temperature, an ash or platinum blonde will suit you better. If you pick the wrong tint your face will look tired looking. If you choose the color that flatters you, you will look healthier, your eyes will look larger, and in general your features will stand out more.
The same can be applied with makeup, if you are warm these are the shades of lipstick and shadows that suit you best:
- Golden shadows
If you are of cold temperature, the following shades of lipstick and shadows will suit you best:
- Intense red
- Purple shadows
- Black Shadows
- Shades of gray
- Blue shadows
Pure red is zero temperature. That is, it is neither hot nor cold. It is important to find the shade of red that suits you. If you have a warm tone, you have orange reds and if you have a cold tone, you have intense bluish reds: darker and more vivid like strawberry red.
Finally, don't be afraid to experiment and try new colors. No one better than you to know what suits you and what doesn't, you just have to listen to your "inner voice".
