A lot of advice is given on how to choose the best designer prom dress to complement your body shape, but color is something that is often overlooked. However, to look really gorgeous for prom, it is essential that you choose a dress with colors that complement your complexion. Here is a guide to choosing the color.
Complexions are often grouped into four different types and are named after each of the seasons; Spring, summer, autumn, and winter.
Golden undertones, creamy white or peach skin belong to this type of complexion. In addition to these traits, people with spring complexions may also have blue or green eyes, straw-colored or strawberry-red hair, and sometimes freckles. This complexion is best complemented by warm colors and tones such as golden brown, golden yellow, camel, or peach. The best designer party dress for you should be predominantly these colors.
People with pale pink skin with blue or pink undertones fall into this category. A girl usually has naturally blonde hair, although brunettes with lighter colored eyes also match this type of complexion. Pastel shades and natural shades perfectly complement the summer complexion. Try colors like lavender or other soft blues, plums, or pink browns. Avoid garish colors like orange or black.
Autumn is a time of golden hues. Fall complexions include redheads and brunettes with light brown eyes. Choose a dress that is any color with golden undertones, such as beige, camel, orange, and brown. Blue tones should be avoided entirely.
This complexion has skin with blue or pink undertones and is usually pale white, yellowish-olive or dark in color. This skin type applies to most Asians and African Americans. Colors that complement each other are crisp and clear like white, black, red, dark blue, and iridescent pinks. If these are too strong and you want something softer, don’t go for pastel colors instead, go for icy shades like icy blue and steel gray. You should avoid colors like orange, beige, gold, and any subdued color.
If you’re still not sure which of the four categories you fall into, go and speak to a professional makeup stylist. Your job is to know all about skin tones and complexion and what colors are best suited to a particular person.
Feel free to combine two different color combinations. Remember that when you do this, the two colors must belong to the same part of the color wheel and therefore complement each other or they must be at opposite ends and provide total contrast.
When it comes to mixing colors, it is best to do it in the dress itself; You should avoid mixing colors when one color is only found in the dress and the other is only, for example, in the shoes; even if the colors match, it can look quite jarring.
The best designer party dress is the one that best accentuates your figure and complexion; many only think about the first part. If you want to look gorgeous for prom, think about color too.
