Color analysis has been used and expanded upon to find the best colors that suit men and women to improve their aesthetic appearance. This awareness has been in practice for the past 50 to 60 years and it is based on scientific color theory. These colors can be used in clothing, cosmetics and hair dyes. The “wrong” colors can cause a person to appear washed out. Colors that complement one another also accentuate one another to bring out their beauty. Colors that don’t complement one another appear dull. This is why choosing colors to complement the skin color and tone is important.
It is best to match colors according to skin color and skin tone, rather than relying on hair color or eye color to match colors. The hair color and eye color can be manipulated to some extent, but the skin tone, regardless of tanning, does not change. Regardless of skin color, skin has different tones. For instance, warm-toned skin has an underlying yellow color to the skin.
Whether a person has dark or light skin, the yellow underlying tone is paired well with colors like red or other colors that are also warm. Cool-toned skin has an underlying pink tone and looks good with other cool colors. Skin that has both warm and cool tones is considered neutral, which can be paired with both warm and cool colors. Warm colors include, but are not limited to: yellow, yellow-orange, orange, orange-red, red and red-violet. Cool colors include, but are not limited to: yellow-green, green, green-blue, blue and blue-violet.
Color analysis is an invaluable tool that immediately beautifies the person utilizing it to discover which colors best suit them according to their individual skin color, skin tone, hair color and eye color. Color analysis enables a person to instantly accentuate their natural beauty by selecting the best colors which suit them.
