The Right Shade of Yellow for Your Skin

Yellow makes for the splashiest colour this season—and we want in. According to Pantone’s Fashion Colour Report for Spring 2017, this year’s reigning shade is Primrose Yellow, a vibrant one that sparkles with warmth and vitality, immediately inviting us into its instant warmth with the waning weather.

However, as exuberant as the colour gets, yellow doesn’t exactly possess the one-colour-fits-all quality, and pulling it off can be a tricky endeavour considering the gamut of complexion in existence. But, that’s what Style Files is here for.

To turn things around and ensure fashion lovers like you can get in on the trend of injecting sunny yellow into your wardrobe, we will first need to know your skin tone:

Now, let’s break it down.

IF YOUR SKIN IS WARM AND FAIR…

Opt for a citron hue that’s vibrant enough without washing you out.

IF YOUR SKIN IS WARM AND MEDIUM…

If you have a coveted golden tan, bright yellows such as the canary hue will render you with a radiant glow.

IF YOUR SKIN IS WARM AND DEEP…

The rich hue of mustard will be a standout against your skin for all the right reasons.

IF YOUR SKIN IS COOL AND FAIR…

You’re the lucky one as any shade of yellow will look good on you, so why not hop right on the bandwagon and try out Pantone’s Primrose Yellow?

IF YOUR SKIN IS COOL AND MEDIUM…

Only you can pull off gold without looking too pallid or frumpy—all the better when it is of a deeper shade and a glossier sheen.

IF YOUR SKIN IS COOL AND DEEP…

The softness of pastel yellow will complement the cool undertones of your skin and provide an overall look of femininity.
