The Best Colors That Look Fantastic in Every Skin Tone

Set aside the age-old assumption that some colors simply do not look good on your skin tone. We gathered hues that will complement your skin tone no matter what it is.

We’ve heard it before: some colors are just not right for your skin tone. Well, it’s time to retire the outdated idea. In more modern times, the colors of the clothes we wear are simply ways to flatter us. With a whole spectrum to pick a shade from, there’s no easy way of telling which works for what skin tone and what doesn’t. So, we gathered 5 universally flattering colors that look fantastic for every skin tone.

3. Reds & Oranges

Between the two, red is most fitting to any skin tone. Orange, on the other hand, is a bit trickier to work with. If you have a cool skin tone, put on either a muted shade or a brilliant orange. While these shades also work great for warm skin tones, richer and burnt orange colors complement it best.
