What Skin Tone Are You?

If you read the recent reviews lately, there has been a lot of mention about the right skin tone and the right colored dresses. The question is, what skin tone category do you fall in? So here is a brief explanation about each skin season and you will find out what skin tone are you!


Undertones: blueish or pinkish

Skin color: Pale white, olive yellow, dark

Generally African Americans and Asians fall into this group

Tip: Opt for colors that are stark, sharp and clear to compliment your winter skin tone. Like in winter, you would like to wear bright colors to stand out of that white background. Same goes for garments! When wearing light colors, opt for icy tones instead of pastel colors, because you need something to match your undertone and not go against it.

Suggested colors: White, Black, Navy Blue, Red, Shocking Pink

Avoid: Subdued tones like beige, orange and gold.
