Jewelry choices can help to successfully accessorize any outfit. However, the first step is to select clothing in colors that will enhance each woman's natural beauty. An essential part of choosing the right colors for your wardrobe is to pick the ones that flatter your skin tone. Below are tips on what colors to choose. All skin tones can also be divided into "cool" and "warm". Cool skin tones have pink or blue undertones and look better with true white, rather than ivory, and any visible veins look blue. Warm skin tones have yellow undertones and look better with ivory, rather than with true white, and any visible veins look greenish. People - and skin tones - can be divided into "seasons," depending on their skin tone. Winter and Summer are "cool" in tone, and they go best with colors in the blue half of the spectrum: bluish-red, violet, blue, and bluish-green. Spring and Autumn are "warm" in tone, and they go best with colors in the yellow half of the spectrum: orange-red, orange, yellow, and yellow-green. A person can often be helped in determining which season best suits her by holding up various colors to her makeup-less face. It is best if this is done in natural light. Some colors will more flattering than others and give your face a look of extra energy. Spring: "Spring" complexions have golden undertones and are usually creamy white or peach. Spring people generally have straw-colored or strawberry-red hair, freckles, rosy cheeks, and blue or green eyes. Springs can wear warm colors like camel, peach, golden-yellow and golden-brown. Avoid dark, dull colors. Summer: "Summer" complexions have blue or pink undertones. Skin is pale and pink. Summers are often natural blondes or brunettes with pale eyes. Summers should choose pastels and soft neutrals with rose and blue undertones. Lavender, plum, rose-brown, and soft-blue suit summers well, while black and orange do not. Autumn: "Autumn" complexions have golden undertones. Many redheads and brunettes with golden-brown eyes fall into this category. Autumns should select colors with golden undertones, like camel, beige, orange, gold and dark-brown. Avoid colors with blue tones, like navy. Winter: "Winter" complexions, like summer complexions, have blue or pink undertones. Skin can be pale white, yellowish-olive, or dark. Winter people are generally brunettes, with deeply colored eyes. Many Asians and African Americans fall into this category. Winters should wear colors that are sharp, stark and clear. White, black, navy blue, red and shocking-pink all go well with winter complexions. For lighter colors, wear icy tones, rather than pastels. Avoid subdued tones like beige, orange and gold. Find clothes and colors that look well on you and have fun adding a rich colored copper pendant, along with some dangly earrings. Have fun expressing yourself!
