Enhance Your Skin with Shades of Green
Green is everywhere this season and boy am I glad to see it! Not only is it a fresh, vibrant color bound to put you in a good mood, but it can make your skin look simply amazing! Every woman is going to have a different shade of green that will be her most flattering. Often it's quite obvious when you're not wearing the right shade - think of those hard-to-wear hues of olive, chartreuse and acid green. Yet finding the right shade for you can be fairly simple.
Shades of green run the gamut from the lightest lime to the deepest inky green. The shades that are going to flatter your skintone best will be somewhere in the mid-range. Think teal, turquoise and jade.
If your skintone has a yellow undertone to it, opt for a green with a lot of yellow in it such as lime, jade and grass.
If your skintone has blue undertones to it, go for a blue-toned shade of kelly, jade or teal.
These shades are very user friendly so if you're not sure which tones your skin has more of you can still feel confident wearing a lovely shade of green in a medium tone. Green, after all, is the mixture of both blue and yellow. With the presence of both shades in this hue you can rest assured that they will leave your skin looking lovely all summer long.
