YOUR SKIN TONE AND COLOUR
2015 has arrived and this year we celebrate the kaleidoscope of skin colour all around the globe. Bio Sculpture® wants to encourage you to take care of your unique skin type. Love your natural tone, flaunt those freckles or beauty spots and embrace your peerless colour complexion by complimenting it with NAIL COLOUR.
There are no rules when it comes to colour although certain colours compliment certain complexions better than others.
Determining what side of the colour wheel will embellish your complexion:
Some complexions suit just about any colour. For the rest of us, some people’s skin has a gold/yellow undertone, while others have a blue/pink undertone. Analyse your wrist. If the veins appear blueish, you have a ‘cool/ocean’ complexion. If they appear greenish, you have a ‘warm/earth’ complexion. This specific undertone will help determine the colours you wear best. Another way to analyse, is to drape a red-orange scarf around your neck. Analyse your face. Then drape a red-violet scarf and compare the two. Some people suit both, but most will definitely fall either in the ‘cool/ocean’- or ‘warm/earth’ complexion category. The same test can be done by using a yellow-green and blue-green scarf.
Skin tone tips:
Fair/Pale skin tones
Stick to darker colours that contrast the skin – whites and pale colours might appear washed out.
Olive/Medium skin tones
Go either light, or dark. Be careful of brown-, yellow- or green undertones. It could make the skin appear yellow.
Darker skin tones
Pretty much any colour goes! Be careful of going too bright, too white or too dark/black.
As all skin tones differ, use these tips as guidelines but never stop experimenting with COLOUR!
