Color for Your Undertones–How to dress Red-tones

I am back folks for the second installment (3 &4 coming soon) of how to dress for your undertones. Last week we covered color for yellow tones and this week it is all about the red-tones. So fasten your seat belts and come along for the ride.


Again, remember the rules I gave to you about makeup, they still apply for your clothing. If you have red undertones, you are representing the warm family of shades, therefore in order to cool down your skin tones and to compliment your fabulous hue, you must stick to colors in the cool or combination family. This means you can wear any color as long as it is on the cool (read yellow/green or blue) spectrum of  color.


Blue-greens (more green than blue), bluish purples, plums, yellowy oranges, blue-pinks, indigos and violets. These cool shades will look great against your skin. Try not to wear too many warm colors, they will make you look too red.


Casual Wear

These cute blue-pink denim again is a great way to get your feet wet if you are afraid of color. Putting the color on the bottom away from your face, helps you to avoid an existential episode. This outfit is amazing because the cream colored blouse along with the brassy-gold embellishments gives you the feel of being colorful and chic without really doing so. Show your friends your flair in this awesome outfit.

Aww yeah. So fresh and chic. That’s what we tough girls girl who like the cute cuddly animals. We buy faux leather and dress it up all tough and then throw on a frilly periwinkle top to exude a bit of sex appeal. The cool blue tone will look hot hot hot on your red-hot tones. Then you must add skull accessories to toughen it up again. Oh this outfit is all you.  Cap toe heels to create the illusion of steel toe boots and black nails, I’m all over this outfit–although I have to get a warmer colored shirt to pull it off.


I hope this post helped you red-tones ladies. Be on the look out for the next three installment. I will be doing a post on how to tell the difference between cool and warm tone colors. But at the moment I am quite the busy bee building my own empire so its taking a bit longer. If you have any questions put them in the comment box and I will answer.


Good LUCK!!
