Is yellow your favourite colour? If so, you are likely to be happy, cheerful, bright and enjoy life. So why do so many women dislike wearing it? Yellow is the most unpopular colour choice with my female clients who often reject it until I show them how flattering it is.
Whenever I wear yellow I always get compliments from women who comment about how brave I am and often congratulate me! Time and time again this is the one colour that women shy away from and as yellow relates to self esteem I think it can also reflect their level of self confidence. Psychologically it can be exactly what they need!
The reality is that many women have yellow (or golden as most prefer to call it!) skin tones. So yellow and any colour with yellow in it ie lime and bright greens, orange and corals, will look lovely against these complexions, evening out the skin tone and making it look healthy and glowing.
The key is to wear either warm or cool shades to suit your skin.
- If you have a warm, yellow-based skin tone then most shades of yellow will suit you; butter, daffodil, lemon, banana, gold and cream.
- If your skin tone is bronze based then the mustards and golds will look best with golden yellow being the most striking particularly with brown and green eyes.
- Cool skins beware; pastel shades suit the softer paler colourings, and acid yellow is the most striking shade with strong, cool winter features, but this colour doesn’t sit naturally with blue-based skin.
It is also important to mention that yellow is also considered the colour of the intellect. So come girls, don’t be shy and show them whose the brightest of them all.
