Many men and women Sometimes they make bad decisions, thinking about whether the color they are going to use is the right one or not, if a dark tone will highlight the dark circles a lot, or if it will make the face look very pale, among many other questions.

The answers to these questions are not obvious since they include an infinity of variants and for the art of combining and harmonizing tones and shades it takes a lot of practice and experience. For these reasons we will leave some useful tips.

  • If you have dark, brown, or olive skin, dark hair, and brown eyes, the colors that stand out the most are white, khaki, pink, gray, and pale blue. Dark brown, turquoise, greenish magenta and black are the ones that look the least.
  • If you have medium skin tone, deep greenish, brown or blue eyes, and your hair is also dark blonde or brown, it is best to choose navy blue, beige, striped pink, black or burgundy. Colors to avoid are dark brown, olive green, red, and mauve.
  • If your skin is very fair, you have light blue eyes and blonde hair, colors like blue, ivory, brown, beige and light blue, and you should avoid pink, orange, purple and red.

It is always good to look for contrasts and not mix similar tones That is why the tonality of colors for light skin should be accompanied by cold colors such as bluish or greenish to make a fresher image. The range of colors for dark skin must be accompanied in turn with warm tones such as reddish. For intermediate tones, the best options are browns, yellows, oranges and light green.

Black pants should always be accompanied with black shoes, dark blue pants go well with dark brown or caramel shoes. As well it is important to match the tone of your shoes with the color of the belt or strap.
