When you shop...


Foundation matches overtones, as well as your (cool) undertone. The best match relates to more than just coolness. As a Winter, your foundation may be porcelain pale, even lighter than your skin appears. Your best colours may also be slightly blue, green, or gray to match the coolness or olive tones in your skin. If your skin is deeper in pigmentation, the colour may appear surprisingly yellow or be labeled as a warm colour. Precise skin tone is variable in each Season, and especially in Winter where pigmentation is the most highly varied. Try products from a variety of brands. Choose the colour that disappears into your skin and into your appearance when the entire face wears the product. Disregard the name of the colour, as makeup and hair colour have their own terminology.


Use your new insight into your best colours to choose the right metal for jewelry. Next to your skin, silver and platinum are most becoming and look great with your clothing and makeup. You know to avoid brushed surfaces (especially in larger areas) that give the metal a grayed or softened look. The colour should feel frozen and sharp. New and modern works better than antique or vintage.

Who knows?...

You might be an individual who looks drop dead gorgeous (men, we’re talking to you, too) in cherry red or starry sky purple. All it takes is your 'wow' colour in an earring or a stripe in a navy blue tie, and your appearance moves one step higher.
