Want That “Youthful Glow” Instantly and Be Seen As Friendly & Approachable? Read on…

Nathalie Skin Tone Tank 19

It’s Summer time. Time to spend more time outdoor and in the sun. And with that, also comes a change in what we can wear, what we feel good in. I could give you a lot of background and reasons as to why what I’m about to share with you works, but you are busy, so I’m going to ask you to just trust me and keep reading.

Ok, so this season, skin tone is IN. Lucky for you! It’s one of the most flattering colors you can wear. If you do it right, it will make you look 10 years younger instantly. It will make you look fresh and give you that youthful glow that all of us want. Not only that, but it’s a color that makes people feel comfortable with you. It’s a very friendly and approachable color, which is nice to wear when you are networking to make new business contacts! ☺

But I have to warn you, if you do it wrong, it will make you look sallow and sick. It will also “wash you out” and make you “disappear”. Who needs that?

Right! So let me tell you how to do it right. So we first have to determine the temperature of your skin tone. Are you cool, warm or neutral?

Ok, so go to your jewelry box and grab 2 necklaces, 1 in silver and 1 in gold (or any piece of jewelry that’s big enough so the experiment is successful. Avoid little tiny earrings for examples). For bonus points, if you have a rose gold necklace you can grab that one too.

Now, go to a mirror where you can see yourself in natural light in and hold first the silver necklace up to your face. What happens? Is there a resonance there? Does it harmonize with you? How does your skin react? Is it happy? And most importantly, does it make you look healthy?

Now, do the same thing with the gold necklace. Hold it up and look. I mean, really look. What happens?

And if you have one, try this exercise with the rose gold necklace.

Ok, so what is the verdict? Which one looked best on you? Be honest with yourself, this is really important.

If the silver one was best, you have a cooler skin tone. If the gold one was best, you have a warmer skin tone. If rose gold was best you most likely have a neutral skin tone.

So how does that translate in clothing? you say. I’m so glad you asked!

Well, if you have a cooler skin tone, you will look best in roses and pinks. And when you are in the store looking for the perfect top in your skin tone (definitely wear this color on top and near your face!) hold it up to you and look in the mirror. What do you notice first, your eyes or the top? If it’s the top, put it back, it’s too bright or too light, or too something. If it’s your eyes, you probably have a winner.

But the main thing is that when you hold it up next to your face, it should feel like it’s exactly like your skin.

Ok, now, if you have a warmer skin tone, you will look best in the peaches, apricots, and bronze colors.

If you have a neutral skin tone, you will look best in those colors that neither too cool nor too warm. But usually, you will tend to be neutral to cool or neutral to warm. So if you “resonate” with neutral to cool, you will do well with the peachy-pinks, and some pinks and roses and for example). But if you tend to warm, you will do great with the peachy-pink, apricots and bronze colors.

Keep in mind, these are broad generalizations, but it will at least get you going in the right direction.

Now, have fun, go shopping and buy something in your skin tone. You will look MARVELOUS!
