WHAT COLOUR LOOKS BEST ON ME?

Published

on

You may ask, what colour looks best on me? Figuring out the colour that suits your skin can be difficult as it is easy to assume your colours based on what suits the people around you or what you prefer.

Since most people tend to ignore the importance of finding the colour that flatters their skin, identifying the colour that suits you is tough. Your skin colour is determined by the amount of melanin in your skin, exposure to the sun, genetics, and atmospheric conditions, although the most prominent is the pigment “melanin”. The people around you might have more or less melanin than you do, hence, producing multiple skin tones. The fact that a colour suits your sibling’s skin do not ensure that it will suit yours.

This is why you should discover that colour, the colour that makes you feel like it is made for you.

Like finding the best hairstyle that suits your face, finding the perfect colour that flatters your skin is tricky. To determine the colour that best suits your skin, you should be aware of these factors: first, your skin tone, and second, your skin shade.

Many assume that finding the colour that best flatters your skin should not be complicated. However, it is easier said than done. What you need to do is identify your skin tone and your skin shade, which will aid you in determining the group you fall into, which could be cool, neutral or warm.

The first step to figuring out your skin tone is to know your skin undertone. This part can be complicated yet easy, depending on your skin clarity. Look down at the vein on your wrist in natural light. Pay attention to the colour. If your veins look green, you are warm-toned, if they look blue, then you are cool-toned. Now that you have determined your skin tone let’s get down to the colours.

Warm-toned people stand out in colours inspired by the reflection of nature. Your best colours are yellow, peach, orange, amber-gold and neutrals like cappuccino, mushroom grey and cream. While cool-toned people bag colours that are inspired by the depths of the ocean like blue, rose, lavender, purple and grey.

People with neutral skin tone cannot tell if their vein is green or blue, they may see both colours in their skin undertone. If you have a neutral skin tone, you should focus more on your shade.

Several articles address the importance of identifying skin tones without reference to skin shades.

Luckily, this article nails down four major skin shades. If you have got a dark skin shade, the best colours for you are navy green, burgundy, grey, and pink. Pastel colours also suit dark skin shades flawlessly. Supposing you’re brown-skinned, there is a high probability that your skin tone is neutral. The colours that look best on you are mid-blue, jade green, corn silk yellow, pastel brown and blue, and teal and grey. If your skin shade is olive, the colours that will look amazing on you are burgundy, maroon, magenta, navy blue, olive green and coral. The last is the fair skin shade. This is for the people we call light-skinned.

The colours that elevate your looks are honey brown, lavender, burgundy, olive green, cream and lagoon blue.

Black, white and red is generic colours as they tend to be flattering on every skin. You just have to determine from the many hues, which hue suits you more.

KIM KARDASHIAN ACCUSED OF DAMAGING MARILYN MONROE DRESS AT MET GALA

The private museum that owns an iconic dress worn by Marilyn Monroe allowed it to be “permanently damaged” when it lent it to reality star Kim Kardashian for her appearance at the Met Gala extravaganza last month, a Monroe memorabilia collector alleged Wednesday.

A platinum blonde Kardashian shined but also stirred controversy when she donned the stunning skintight gown Monroe wore in 1962 to sing “Happy Birthday, Mr President” to John F Kennedy.

Scott Fortner, a collector who runs a website dedicated entirely to Monroe, released before and after photos this week of the crystal-studded cream gown.

The after shots were taken by a friend of Fortner, who saw the dress on display Sunday at curiosity museum Ripley’s Believe It or Not! in Los Angeles, which owns the dress and had allowed Kardashian to wear it.

The comparison shots seem to show small tears in the fabric near hooks that fastened the dress together as well as missing crystals and others hanging by a thread.

The alleged damage to the gown, which Ripley’s bought at auction for a record $4.8 million, has drawn widespread criticism on social media in recent days.

In an update published to his Instagram account on Wednesday, Fortner specified that “I blame Ripley’s, as they allowed the dress to be worn.”

“I feel that any and every celebrity offered a chance to wear this garment very likely would jump at the opportunity,” he said. “There’s a reason someone would want to wear it. Kim K. just happened to be the one who got to do it.”

“It’s now permanently damaged, and likely would have been damaged regardless of who wore it,” Fortner said.

Asked by AFP about the accusations, Ripley’s did not respond Wednesday afternoon.

In early May, Ripley’s trumpeted the opportunity for Kardashian to wear the dress.

“Great care was taken to preserve this piece of history. With input from garment conservationists, appraisers, archivists, and insurance, the garment’s condition was top priority,” the company said.

Kardashian, who reportedly went on a major diet to be able to squeeze into the legendary garment, did not respond to the allegations on her social networks.
