Find the ideal color!
Everyone is different, but we all belong to one of the following chromo types: spring, winter, summer or autumn.
The colour of your tan gives you the first indications of your chromo type. If your skin’s got yellow, almost golden reflection, you’re spring or autumn type; generally, warm colours will look good on you. If your skin is blue-shaded with a slight shade of grey, you’re winter or summer type; generally, cold colours will suit you. The best way to instantly define the colour of your tan is to look at the inside of your forearm.
SUMMER TYPE: Your hair colour is blond ash-gray or light brown, without golden shades. Under the sun you might have red or blond ash-grey reflection. Your eyes are light blue, light green, green blue, blue grey or hazelnut brown. You tan easily, unless your skin is really white. Pastel shades and mild tones look best on you: faded blue (like jeans), pearl grey, off-white, blue sky, candy pink, old rose or lilac. Try to avoid bright colours: electric blue, tomato red, fluorescent green, yellow orange. Go for night blue instead of black.
WINTER TYPE: Contrast is what characterize you the most: your hair is dark, even though it might have red reflection under the sun; your skin is porcelain white blue-shaded, white or olive brown reflection. You got a hard time tanning. Your eyes are dark brown, black, dark blue or green. All the pure and cold colours, contrasting shades revive your complexion: white, black and charcoal grey, pure red or scarlet, hard blue, bright, fir green, dark violet, bright red. You should avoid drab colours. Shades with dominant yellow, brown (or too dark in any case), orange, golden, that dull your complexion and deepen your features are to be avoided too.
SPRING TYPE: You are pale blond, golden blond or auburn, with red reflections in your hair. Your skin is pale, often with red spots that darken as soon as the sun comes out. Your eyes colour can vary from turquoise blue, blue-green or golden brown. All the acid colours, bright nuances with dominant yellow suit you well: camel, honey, golden brown, champagne, acid green, apple-green, lime-tree, warm yellow, orange red, salmon pink, coral. For those with darker complexion, should prefer lilac violet, light blue marine and milk chocolate brown. Try to banish pink rose and to avoid pure withe, grey, blue-shaded red, dark red, that make your cpmplexion pale and yellowish.
AUTUMN TYPE: Your skin colour is more likely to be golden yellow or brownish, even though your complexion might be pale, transparent. Your hair is auburn, carrot red or copper-red. Your eyes are light blue, dark, dark green golden brown, dark brown, sometimes sequined with golden. All the warm tones based on yellow, subdued or very shiny tones are made for your golden browns, golden beige chocolate, champagne, orange, all the greens, fir, olive, khaki, salmon pink, apricot and tomato red, even mustard yellow. Try to avoid cold tones, pastel colors and pink, as well as pure white or black (instead you should use off-white and dark chocolate).
