selecting the perfect colors
I always pick the wrong color and it drives me crazy! It looks great in the store and then terrible when I try it on at home. Sound familiar? The key to choosing a perfect match: the elements!
Does your hair have golden or red tones? Do you have medium to dark eyes? Is your hair dark or medium dark?
Earth women are known for their drama and intensity. You look best in shades you'll find in the autumn landscape: warm greens, gold and rust. Your best neutral shades are khaki and ecru, but beauty fades in blues, grays, and most pinks. Brownish red blush, like burnt umber and chestnut, is far more flattering than pink.
Does you hair have golden or red tones? Do you have clear, light to medium eyes? Is you hair medium to light?
Air women are radiant and sensitive. You look best in shades of teal, salmon, pastels, ivory and sand. A whirlwind of activity, elegant airs should steer clear of dark or dull colors and blue-based reds. Liven up your lips with peach or poppy red gloss. Your best neutrals are golden brown and camel, and you shine in neutrals.
Is you hair solid silver or dark without golden highlights?
Water women are profound, intense and precise. You look best in strong, vivid shades with blue undertones (like those of the sea) such as red, royal blue and teal green. Avoid metallics and yellow-based reds. You shine like a nymph in grayish green periwinkle. Your best neutrals are black and navy.
Fire women look fab in dramatic shades, but should shun pastels, heather grey, muted browns, greens and blues. You look best in all of the coolest shades of pink, mauve and slate blue. Your complexion look loveliest when brushed with cool plum or wine-colored blush. Your best neutrals are charcoal or a dramatic black.
