The colours that are most flattering on our skin tone are those that harmonise with our natural hair, eyes and skin tones.
They will make us look lighter, brighter, healthier, slimmer and younger – and who doesn’t want that?
All colours reflect on our skin, and whether that is flattering or not, is based on the levels of our pigments, such as melanin and carotene.
Most people wear black, but it’s not particularly flattering for many as it’s a very harsh and cool colour. If you’ve ever put on a high necked black top and thought you looked like your head was floating, this is because it’s not flattering for you.
Black is a COOL colour, so if you’ve got a warm complexion, it will never be your best option.
It is also a DEEP colour and looks best on those with deeper skin or hair colour.
Notice how the lighter Angelina Jolie’s hair becomes, the less flattering black is on her, and how she looks more washed out with warm coloured hair next to her cool skin.
