Why I never wear black!

Light is the messenger and colour is the message - colours make you alive! Click To Tweet

rencontre celibataire quarantaine Even from a young age I never liked black, mainly because I thought it was too boring and I love colour, colour, colour! It was just as well because even though it’s an extremely popular choice, I just don’t suit it! In fact black makes my skin-tone look dull and grey, and unhealthy! Black is a great neutral but it is also a dark, clear, cool neutral and if your own colouring (skin tone, hair colour and eye colour), isn’t the same it’s not going to be flattering, particularly when worn up near your face! Black works best with other clear, cool colours and as far as the free dating sites for seniors over 60 Absolute Colour System I use to determine ones best colours, it only fits into a few of the colour ranges that have these types of colours such as Dramatic, Dynamic, Elegant, or Mysterious.

The reason being that as we age our hair lightens, and our eyes and skin-tone dulls down, so wearing black can make our wrinkles and shadows show up more. speed dating boise Not sure what your best neutrals are? 

  • Consider how you feel when wearing black near your face, do you feel dull and lifeless?
  • Do you have to wear lots of bright make-up like a red lipstick to balance the brightness of black?
  • Test out some other neutrals such as a charcoal/navy or earthy browns or olives to see if they suit you better.
  • Or better still consider a personal colour analysis so you never get it wrong again!
