Each woman has a slightly different skin tone, which means certain colours look better on certain individuals. When choosing the colour of your clothing you need to pay special attention to your skin, hair and eye colour. The best way to find out your skin tone is to look at the skin on the inside of your arm in natural daylight, as it won’t have been powdered with make up or altered by the sun. Different skin tones can be categorised into the four different seasons (each individual season will be covered in more detail in the following articles). Each season (Winter, Spring, Autumn and Summer) has a variety of colours which is appropriate for that individual skin tone.
If you have problems differentiating your skin complexion to one of the seasons, which will be listed in the following articles, you can pop into most salons or stores that deal with make up. They will be able to help you identify your skin tone and consequent season, as well as show you which colours (e.g. make up and clothing) complements you. However, if you cannot decide upon your season, a colour that looks great on you will always brighten your look and lift your spirit.
