HOT COLOR ALERT

: YELLOW
The temperature is still hot in some parts of the country and so is the hot yellow color trend in the fashion world.  The trick is to wear this color well and layer it with the right color combination that goes well with your complexion.

Fair skin
These are people who easily burn but don’t tan.  They are more pinkish than peachy and have cool undertones and yellow tones.  If some of these skin types tan, their tan is more of a golden hue.  Another cool way to determine if you have cool” undertone is by looking at your veins.  If they are blue, then you have “cool” skin.  A person with cool undertone looks best in silver or platinum jewelry since they make your skin radiant!  Dark yellow or mustard will look great on fair skin tone.  Also, blue or white is great for layering since these colors complement your complexion very nicely.  Celebrities like Elizabeth Taylor and Oprah have “cool” complexions.

Olive skin
These are generally people with dark brown skin with “red” tones who can be best described as “bronze” or “brown” when tanned.  Warm undertones are present in this skin type as well and usually look best in gold jewelry or yellow metals.  Also, if you’re looking at your veins and they are green in appearance then you have warm skin.  Those skin types can handle bright yellow colors and layering it with rust or cream colors are best.  “Warm” beauty celebrities like Jennifer Lopez and Beyoncé should be your fashion icons.

Neutral skin
If you don’t fall in any of the categories in fair and olive skin tone then you probably have neutral skin.  You look great in both warm and cool undertones.  Lucky You!  Experiment and have fun with any yellow colors, dark or bright!
