This summer 2020 there are many colours and colour combinations that we can test and they are a trend. But women with style know that not everything that’s fashionable is flattering or fits in your wardrobe. The perfect example: the cowboys slouchy are not for just anyone. It’s the same with colours. You want to know which one suits you best and brings out your full potential? We tell you which one is your ally according to your skin tone.
The color palette can be our ally or our worst enemy. That’s why it’s important to know how to use it to our advantage, to get the most out of it and to make sure that the colours we choose play on our side. The first step is know what our skin tone and subtone is with a simple home test.
The skin subtone test
Our skin tone can vary. If we have been exposed to the sun and have gotten a tan, if we have a skin condition such as rosacea or if we take any medication that alters our melanin. That’s why we we recommend that you look at the subtoneIt is invariable throughout the year.
To get to know our skin subtone we can take advantage of a moment of natural light to to bring a white sheet of paper close to our facesDoes your skin look yellowish, greenish or beige? Then yours is a warm tone. If, on the contrary, the contrast is pink or blue, your undertone will be cold.
We can also look at the veins in our wristsThe green color is for women with warm skin and the blue and purple color for those with cold skin. And if you do not see clearly any of the above options, you will see a neutral tone.
The colours of summer 2020 that shine on warm leathers
The neutral tones
Women with warm skin are in luck, because one of the biggest trends of the moment fits them like a glove. We’re talking about natural colours like the beige, the khaki or the nude that are so in this summer 2020. Wear them with neutrals like black or white and you’ll be sure to get them right.
Neon, fuchsias and fire colours
Warm colours, of course, are the best ally of warm skins. Reds, corals, oranges, golds and yellows are going to make you turn your heads in your tracks. It’s the perfect moment to release the fluorescent colors that are so successful this season -we can wear them with neutrals so they won’t be excessive-, the fuchsia that has already conquered even the red carpets and the most summery orange.
Warm versions of the cold tones
But we’re not just talking about the hottest tones, because they also fall into this sack the most hot of the cold colors. Lavender, burgundy or moss green should be on your list. Especially if we accompany them with some of the colors mentioned above, such as the brown of the neutral scale.
What colors of summer 2020 will make women with cold skin irresistible
Winter in your closet is playing it safe
The coldest spectrum of the color palette is your best friend. From the nuclear white to blue and gray. All the color we can find in a winter and snowy landscape is made for you. The best? These are always in fashion.
The pastel colours
They are the frosted (and trendy this summer) version of the warm colors and what allows women with cold complexions boasting of yellows, greens, roses and oranges without looking too pale.
The jewel tones
If you want to intensity and warmth in your styles the more luxurious side of the color spectrum is made for you. Sapphire blue, emerald, ultraviolet or ruby red will make you the queen of colour.
Those with neutral skin can wear anything, but there are some that fit better
If you’re lucky enough to fall into no man’s land in terms of skin subtones, any colour you like will suit you. However, we can talk about “looking good” and we can talk about shining. And if you’re betting on Duller versions of the colours instead of the shiny ones the result will be spectacular.
Colours washed with grey
We’re talking about those vibrant colors that seem to have been mixed with grey to soften the result. The Classic Blue, the egg yellow, the lilac or the green camouflage are a good example.
Red passion: the exception
And the exception that confirms the rule: never be afraid of red hot passion because you’ll be a goddess in it.
The question of hair color (and many other variables)
Of course, skin tone and undertone are not the only things that influence the success of one color or another. It also depends on whether our hair is blonde or brunette, on the occasion for which we are getting ready or on the accessories we have chosen. This is just a manual with recommendations, but now each one can play with the colours as they please.
