– Light people with warm undertones should go for warm-toned neutrals and more saturated shades like umber, cypress and plum while cool undertones should avoid yellows, greens and ambers but should opt for dusk, cameo fade or blush. Pinks and blues tend to flatter them.
– Medium people with warmer undertones should invest in greens, amber fade and tortoise shades, while people with a cooler tone should go for cherry shades, blues and reds.
– Shades like brindle fade, or hemlock, or metallic with granite compliments deep people with warm undertones. People with cooler undertones should go for purple and black, shades like plum, cadet, and ochre look really good on them and they can even carry blue based and greens like forest.
