very light pink.  It makes me look pasty and brings out all the pink undertones in my skin.

Red/orange because of my skin complexion and red hair.  I still wear orange though because of the Philadelphia Flyers.

Mustard yellow and orange.  I’m pale with strawberry blonde hair….it is a horrible, horrible thing when I wear those colors!!

Most pastels look awful on me. I can wear black, white, cream and any strong colour. Jewel tones are usually my favourites, though. Red, green, blue and purple all look fantastic on me.

My skin is super fair with freckles.  My hair is very dark brown.  I look absolutely horrible in :

– beige (!!!)

– yellow

– cherry-toned or tomato red (scarlet or bluish reds look okay)

Black, beige, and tan…coral and bright yellow are also bad on me, though mustard yellow isn’t so bad. I’m very pale with (dyed) red hair. I can generally wear jewel tones, but I have to be careful–if the color is TOO strong, it washes me out.

light skin, reddish brown hair

I wish I was ever able to wear red or yellow or orange or any think in that family but I look pale and blotchy. I have grown to like green becuase it is safe.

I avoid bright yellow at all costs. I have dark hair and olive complexion, so I can only really do a mustard yellow. Pretty much all my bridesmaids fall under the same coloring, so there will be no yellow anywhere in our wedding.

Any shade of yellow, makes me look washed out.

Neon colorss (but then only a few people look great in them.)

Light grays, but dark is fine.
