Dusk One Colour Palette

You are in the Dusk Colouring category. What this means is that you have can have any skin tone from porcelain, to black and all that is in between. You likely have dark brown or black hair and dark eyes. You probably have dark eyebrows and eyelashes too. 

Your category is Dusk and can either be warm and yellow-based, or cool and pink-based. 

You are best suited to darker or bight colours in clothing. If you choose to wear something lighter, pair it with a darker garment in your wardrobe. Preferably wear darker clothing that is closer to your face. Choose either a mixture of dark or bright colours, dark and medium or mainly dark with one light piece. Avoid wearing all pastels. 

During the summer months wear bold coloured accessories and choose medium tones, rather than pastel summer clothes. Preferably, if possible, choose garments in the darker shades of your colour palette or be bold and select some bright tones. 

You can afford to wear two dark tones together. You can also wear black.

Your Dusk One Colours

You are in the first of the Dusk colour tones. You have pale to olive skin, and dark hair and eyes. Intense and dark colours and a few lighter shades will work best on you. All dark or intense colour may overpower you, particularly if you have porcelain skin. You can wear a full outfit of black. Soften the intensity of all black with highlights of ivory or primrose. Brown tones in various shades will look fabulous on you too. To choose colours from your palette, consider the following;

  • Is your skin tone cool or warm? An easy way to check is to look on the inside of your wrist; blue veins indicate a cool skin tone and green veins indicate a warm skin tone. Select either warm or cool colours from your palette that aline with your colouring. 
  • Do they need to look official for work? If so try the black, pewter, alpine, Burgundy, olive tree or chocolate tones. 
  • If the clothing that sits closest to your face is medium, muted tone like for example taupe, choose brighter colours like turquoise and scarlet to break up your look. 
  • Accentuate outfits with bright or darker accessories.
  • For work, consider deep navy, taupe, egg plant or black. Brown would look fantastic on you. 
  • In winter, try to find bright colours to brighten up your outfits.
