y'know, i have a hard time with this

i'm caramel coloured, with definite yellow undertones
but i find wearing: gold/red/orange/brown and some warm greens, make me look horribly washed out.... i look awful!

i glow when i wear: berry/plum/black/white (not ivory)/royal blue/blue to name a few... cool colours.

somehow, wearing the opposite colour (ie. cool colours on my warm skin) makes me look better.

anyone have any input regarding this? or - a site/book that'd be able to help me?

btw: according to MAC, i'm an NC (not a NW - which surprised me) - yellow undertones are classified as being cool (NC), whereas red undertones are classified as being warm (NW). Maybe MAC has the right idea.

Anouk - if MAC is right, then i'd head down to a MAC counter and ask them what colours would be good for you - and then translate that into clothing colours.

As for body shape and clothing - check out the books: "what not to wear" and "the pocket stylist".

Makes sense... I've got dark red hair, brown eyes, black eyebrows and pale skin.
I tend to wear purple, black, yellow and occationally green.

I have relatively pale skin, light blue eyes, and dark brown hair. Purple is my fav color, but I don't think it looks that great on me. I think black, blues, greens, and cream/white look best on me.

Good on me: Warm browns, orange, red, coral-ish pinks, maroon, olive green, mossy greens, bright yellow.

Bad on me: most pastels, blue, purple, grey, beige, bluey greens, delicate pinks, jewel tones.

My wardrobe is almost strictly warm colors, and I have a strong preference for strong, bright colors rather than soft, faded, or muted tones. If I do earth-tones, they are the warmer browns and greens, not the greys or beiges.

As far as my coloration goes, I have a light complexion with definite yellow undertones. Sallow in the wrong clothes. My natural hair is a warm medium-brown with golden highlights, but I dye it auburn with henna. My eyes are greenish-brown or brownish-green, depending. I am of medium height and build (5'5", size 4-6, depending).

I have fairly tanned skin, goldish hair (darker in the winter), dark brows and dark brown eyes with a hint of green. Also, I have freckles, but they kind of blend in, and are only noticeable on my nose.

Neutral colors work for me; black, white, grey, navy and all darker greens. I don't do great with pastels and pink, while bright red actually works (especially on my lips). I'm not too sure about yellow, and I can't handle too much brown or dark red. Turquoise is really bad.
I use brightly colored accesories (necklaces, belts, earrings..) a lot, and that gives it all a bit more life.

I wondered if anyone has any suggestions to colors I could use, since it sometimes becomes a bit too boring? Also I'm completely confused about patterns.. I can't figure out if they're good or bad!

Hair : Blonde not really ashblonde not really golden blonde..somewhere inbetween
Skin : Fair with pink tones
Eyes : Blue-Green

Colorwise I'm the opposite of As_you_like_it

I look best in
Muted colours.

Powder pinks
Wine Red

Bluish Teal

Greys especially Charcoal
but it can be too harse and Charcoal generally looks better on me

Cream (Creme)
White but it can be too harse and Cream (Creme) generally looks better on me

I don't stick rigorously to these colours tho' but there are some colours I avoid like:
Mustard Yellow,
Neon Colours,
Emerald Green,
Canary Yellow,
Grass Green,
Icey Mint (detest that colour),
Calypso Red (Orangy Red) and
too Golden Camel (love the colour, but can't wear it for the life of me).
