“I think this matches your season Pedro” – Deb, Napoleon Dynamite
I have a girlfriend who likes to point out that not everyone is wearing the right color for their skin tone- whether it be the clothing they are wearing or the makeup on their face. She always brings it back to Color Me Beautiful- the simple systems of questions that leads you to your color season that was huge in the 90s. And you know what? She is right.
But I was thinking that we need to make this even one step simpler- just break yourself into a cool or a warm tone. Do you know which one you are? Try this: Turn your hand over, palm up, and take a look at the underside of your wrist. What color are the veins? If they look blue or purple, you’re cool toned. If they look green or have a yellow cast, you’re warm toned. That’s it. Simple.
Once you know that one simple piece of information you can go forth and wear colors with confidence. Not sure what colors fall under warm or cool? Check these out:
Of course if you are an overachiever and want to take it one step further, knock yourself out.
Because time is precious, don’t waste yours wearing colors that don’t make you look fabulous.
Your Summer Sister,
