I have fair skin. I have been told I look good in coral and jade. I also like really delicate, pale greens.

I have mid ash blonde hair (which is highlighted) and pale yellowish toned skin (like the colouring the girl in my avatar has) - all the 'colour' books say that I don't suit dark colours but really thats what I look best in. I find that brights look terrible on me but muted shades of purple & blue and black/grey/navy are my best colours. I think cool blonde hair looks great with black. Red/orange/yellow and peachy colours are just awful on me.

do you find that these 'colour me beautiful' tests just get it wrong?

I'm very white with dark hair so I look like Dracula in babygros if I wear pastel shades. I suit deeply saturated colours, and black.

I've never been able to tell what colors look good on me. I have dirty blonde hair naturally but I have it dyed dark brown, almost black right now... my wardrobe is mostly cream, teal, rose, and black because that's what I like. No red in sight, but my mom tells me red is actually my best color. Who knows.

A kind of bright blue looks best on me. I have blonde hair and very blue eyes.

I think pink and green look quite good, but the one I like the best is black.
Actually, the only one that looks bad is any shade of yellow. I think it's my skin. I'm very pale with black hair, and the yellow just looks really horrible.

Warm blues. Teal, aqua, turquoise. I always get complements when I wear these kinds of colors.

Second would be the burgundy, deep berry or dark, cool red colors. Same thing, I get lots of compliments.

And while I personally hate it, I sometimes get gifts in bright lime green and I get compliments when I have to wear that color too. But I don't really like oversaturated colors so I avoid it.

Oh about the skin tone, see my avatar. I am what? Warm, medium golden brown? Help me out experts please!

Yes, or at least not always right. I never really know if I'm warm or cool b/c I know I look good in some of the colors in either family and look bad in some of the colors, too Always confused...

I think my best colors are autumn tones and blues. My eyes are a grey/blue so any blue tends to set them off.

I also subscribe to the theory that you can wear any color. It's just a matter of finding the right shade...

Colors I KNOW I can't wear - the bright oranges, greens and yellows that were the 'big trend' last spring I think it's a small percentage of people that can actually wear those tones...

rich autumny colours look best on me - most shades of mid to dark green, fuschia, warm blues, and warm reds suit me the best. I'm not too bothered about wearing most all colours that I like though - like curious said, most colours can look good on you, as long as you find the right shade.

All I know is I can't wear yellow or orange, and if I wear too much black then I look like a goth... not really in the good sense of the word :p
