Being back in the (deep) south I feel like “knowing your colors” equates to “knowing your team colors” and wearing red and blue for Ole Miss or Maroon and White for Mississippi State. And I’m sure I’ll learn shortly that houndstooth is actually a color, not a print, that supports Alabama haha. But when its NOT game day and the whole color wheel is fair game, I think it’s important to know what colors work for your skin type. I never really put much thought into this until noticing that black looks AMAZING on my blonde friends and yellow looks stunning on one of my friends with a deeper complexion.
Being at NYFW with 4 roommates and me forgetting my makeup bag, it was interesting how different color eyeshadows, lipsticks, and dresses looked SO DIFFERENT on each of us depending on our skin. I found this article online and as “shallow” as it is, I think knowing my colors helps narrow down options when I’m shopping, ultimately saving time. For me it’s burnt oranges, light blues, deep reds, and hunter green. What are your colors?
Today I’m packing up for CALIFORNIA tomorrow because this weekend is Gigi’s wedding! ahhhhhh I’m so excited about it and getting to stand by her side as she says “I do.”
