The Right Skin Tone Colors For You

Author: Kim Kinis

When choosing swimwear, it's very important that you pick out colors that compliment your skin tone. No two people on this earth have the exact same skin color so remember when picking out your particular bikini, choose what is proper for you. Just because your best friend can wear a bright red polka dotted swimsuit and look great doesn't mean you can too. It might make you look like a clown. You might look great in a pastel pink with blue trim bathing suit that's tailored just for you. Here are some general tips to consider with regard to your specific skin tone. We are going to separate them in terms of pale, olive, caramel, and dark brown. You might not be exactly any of those skin tones but you are in between them.

If you have very pale skin and it's impossible to tan, then you would look good in soft pastel colored swimwear. The lighter colors will blend in well with your sensitive skin tone. Of course you could wear a bright red bikini if you choose but it will be strikingly noticeable. Plus if you are pale and should happen to get sunburned, the red bathing suit and your red skin will make you look like a lobster. Stick to the light colors like beige, peach and baby blue to show off your genuine and unique skin tone.

For olive skin tones, you can wear blues and greens without any problem. Those colors bring out the naturalness of your skin color. Mixing the colors up would work well for you like wearing a swimsuit with a green top and blue bottom with green trimming or dots. Purple and burgundy would also be very vibrant colors that you could wear.

Caramel skin should capture colors of the earth. Orange, peach and green are great colors that show off the depth of caramel skin. Mixing and matching the bikini colors is also a great idea for you. Having caramel skin also allows you to flaunt deep rich red colors if mixed in nicely with a few accessories like hats or scarves.

Dark brown to black skin looks great in brown, black and even white. The white would be very noticeable but it also brings out and compliments the rich skin tone. Bright red would be very vibrant but it's also another color that brings out the dark texture. Stick to colors that look good on you overall so you can walk around in that sexy swimsuit with pride.

      Helps to have more information. Complimentary colors are usually determined by your ‘season’ which is your skin tone and undertones, along with your eye and hair color. This site has some suggestions: I’m guessing you are either autumn or spring. After you figure out which one you are, a simple google search will come up with loads of sites being more specific with colors.

      Hope that helps

      Olive skin tone is usually light-colored. However, if your skin is slightly tanned, you should probably go for a light-medium skin color for your makeup.
