Will this colour suit me?

This is a common question from my customers, or “will this colour suit my friend?”

The quick and easy way to find out if a colour will suit your skin tone, is to use the table below.

Simply decide which description matches your skin tone, eye and colour best and the eight colours that best suit you are shown to the right, for each of the three skin tone categories, Warm, Cool or Mid tone (sometimes called Neutral).

This guide can be used to choose the best colour for clothing or accessories such as jewellery and silk scarves.
