I'm starting to gravitate towards YG again, even though I feel it doesn't look as good with my skin tone.
Are you very fair? I´ve always thought that yellow gold matches pretty much everyone´s skin tone.
Thanks RaiKai, I can´t believe I´m as old as I am and had never heard about Undertones. I´m not big into make up or fashion, or maybe I just live under a rock :-)
But i do have to say that all your yays and nays on wearing colors are right on for me, so I guess I do have a warm skin tone and never realized it. Cool to know, I think i´ll do a little more research on this!
It looks best with people with warm undertones. This has nothing to do with how fair or dark you are! I see people often say "I am pale so yellow is no good" or "I am olive skinned so yellow looks best". No, it all has to do with the UNDERtones! You can be pale with warm undertones, or very dark with cool undertones, and vice versa!
I am pasty pale as a natural redhead (e.taylor is also a redhead with pale skin!) but my undertones are warm and yellow metals look best. Yellow metals brighten up my skin, warm it up. My husband is constantly telling me how great I look in yellow gold. White metals wash me out. They make me look cold and clammy! It is just like wearing earthtone fabrics on me (awesome) or jewel colours (ick), or browns and other earthy colour makeups (smashing) or pastels and bright colours (clown like).
Cool undertones look best with white metals.
I have learned that only 10% of the population has warm undertones!
