As for my skin color...it's pretty much impossible to exaplain. I have yet to find makeup that comes even close to my natural skin tone. I am a mixture of like 400 different ethnicities so maybe this created genetic confusion and my skin couldn't pick a normal color...I don't know. I have dark brown hair and pale skin, but it doesn't look like...colorlessly pale...and maybe it has some olive in it..and some beige...but yeah..it's pretty indescribable when you get right down to it. Those color tests never work on me.

Black is probably my best color, but I love wine red, and white. Pink is fun too, but I don't own much pink stuff.

those of you saying black, what is your skin tone and hair color? Just cuirous because I'd never met anyone before who considered black to be one of their best colors.

my skin tone is somewhat pale with a slight olive tint (not really noticeable), and I have dark brown hair.

I've been told that vibrant colors like magenta, turquoise, coral look good on me. I prefer to wear mostly black.

Probably my best color is dusty rose/dusty coral. It's been a bit hard to find for awhile but I was able to pick up a piece or two last fall--probably should have bought more. My skin is fair and very pink (what Prescriptives calls blue/red) with some freckles, and my hair is chestnut. I also do well with coral, ivory, certain purples (more blue than red), teal, brown. Emerald green would probably work but for some reason although I like to decorate with green I've never liked to wear it much ... on St Patrick's Day I never have anything to wear & have to lie and say my lingerie is green

I think Color Me Beautiful got it somewhat right, but the biggest problem there is they limit the recommended palettes so that everything will go together (in their conventional opinion). The way I see it is, making recommendations is fine, but coordinating my wardrobe and limiting my color palette is my job :p I remember seeing another color book I liked a lot better, but can't remember the name of it now ...

Reds, oranges, yellows pinks and golds look best on me. Also, certain shades of blue. My skin tone is very gold and look washed out in white, certain blues, grays, greens etc.
