I feel a bit like you, my skin is definitely 'warm' but my hair is 'cool'. Totally feel like a genetic freak. Anyway, I have read other books that focus only on colour of the eyes and skin and it 'works' much much better.

If anyone interested I'll post the name of the book (another retro-cheesy one from the 70's, not the CMB ones).

PAVEMENT: From what you say, one thing is sure is that there's a lot of contrast between your skin and hair, so that bright (not muted) colours should suit you most. And it also seems that 'cold' shades suit you better. For the white, try different shades (they can be very very different ie I can't wear winter whites but i'm fine with Ivory whites).

Yes it does sucks, like you can't put every white skin people into one group like you can't do it either with people with different shades of darker or black skin. The colour of your eyes will give a clue. And you need to test and try to see what looks best on you.

Alright, I have posted a couple pics of me in various stages. Appearance is such a fluid existence. I don't wear much makeup aside from blush, mascara, eyeliner, mainly because I find that makeup doesn't work well for me. I believe it is because I don't have classic features. Small eyes, chubby cheeks, bulbous nose, that sort of thing. I'd really appreciate any input regarding my ideal color scheme. Thanks very much.
I posted these via imageshack....I'm not sure If I'm supposed to mention that.

i would say that you are cool complexioned--- with a rosy/ruddyiness. i would also suggest chocolate browns, deep blues, bright blues, cool.bright white... maybe corals and certain yellows--- look at kristin cavalleri. she has your complexion.

Thank you Gia. I would never have thought so, but it's interesting and it pleases me enormously, as I just bought this blue silk scarf. I'm even more excited to wear it thanks to your comment!

is your hair naturally blonde? if so, is it white blond, golden blonde, or dark blonde. is it brown in the winter? that is pretty important. if your hair is naturally a different color(and childhood does not count) please state.

Yes, it's naturally blonde... I'd say golden blonde/mousy blonde.

white linen, i think youu are probably neutral-- with a sort of peachy/golden complexion even though its fair. you would look great in tons of different colors. like olive green, pinks, turqoise, some pastels, theonly celebrity i can think of with your coloring is portia rossi.

I looked at those pictures but I'm still iffy about what colours would look good on me.
I have dark brown hair, blue/green/grey eyes, the kind that change to what youre wearing if you get what i mean, and beigeish skin. Its not pale, but not bronze or anything. Just very very neutral.
I dont know if this description was enough, but can you guys help me figure this out?
