Burgondy/wine looks very nice with brown hair.

red, deep forest green and purple

lovely for winter and my fave winter colours - very popular this season too smile

I like brown in skirts and trousers, complimented with a very zingy coloured top like bright turquoise, bright pink.

Per Una seem to put a lot of brown with bright colours.

Dark orange? Second the turquoise suggestion.

I have similar colouring and will wear red, purple, green, yellow, bright pink. Any bright colour really. (had my colours done as a teen and was supposed to wear bright colours, not the autumny ones. Prefer black, but have recently been adding colour to my clothes)

I have med/copper brown hair and med skin with green eyes and I usually dress in darker colours (blue/grey/green) but I am going to the cricket tomorrow (!) and dug out a vintage 50's style dress I bought about 3 years ago and haven't worn yet - it's yellow and white striped (horizontal stripes) and it looks great! I'v never tried yellow before !

I'd definitely recommend a Colour Me Beautiful consultation; I used to wear a lot of sand/olive green/muddy colours - totally wrong for me apparently. It's a bit tricky to match up with the swatch you get all of the time, but it definitely encourages a bit more confident adventurous, particularly around sales time when you can hoover up unusual colours!

adventurousness if that's even a word

lovelysongbird Tue 19-Aug-08 16:34:37

how much is that cmb consultation?

Enraha Tue 19-Aug-08 16:46:58

It's a long while since I had one, but I think I had a joint colour and make-up one for about £75. Has saved me a fortune on costly colour mistakes though wink. Or should that be encouraged me to spend a fortune on teal clothes.
