Can we pull it off?

I know there used to be a thread for Winters but I can't find it.

I don't know if I'm a winter but I do have very pal cool toned skin with dark hair and green/hazel eyes and I really suit wine red colours.

I have a lipstick in the same shade as that dress. It lights up my face and makes me look a lot healthier and awake than I feel! So for my colouring at least, it's a really good colour.

Thanks, Wagglebees.

This page is very useful and as you can see there are lots of similar colours on it so if you are winter it should work very well.

Thanks Casmama! This is indeed very useful!

I never thought I can wear green. I remember as a teenager I had a green shirt and I looked very odd in it, and I couldn't understand why. It was only when I discovered skintone/seasons later in life that I understood why I always looked sickly in green, brown, earth tones, warm colours, etc.

Turns out I can wear green - but specific greens like emerald, not the usual leafy green or bright green etc.

I'm a winter and I wear that colour loads. It's a pretty perfect red imo.

Thanks mimiasovitch! smile I think I am keeping it then!
