How to Tell If You’re a Sunrise Or Sunset Coloring


Assorted Makeup to Determine Skintone Coloring Pixibay Image
Understanding the colors in your skin tone can lead you to more flattering choices when selecting clothes to play off your coloring.


Have you ever noticed that certain colors tend to flatter your skin tones more than others? If so, then I have a foolproof method of determining the best color family to compliment your complexion since you can be either a sunrise or sunset type of coloring.

Golden Skin Tones Show Warmth in Color Like the Sun 

Women with golden skin tones should seek out colors you see when the sun goes down (terra-cotta, warm reds, and tangerine).

Fair Skin Tones Reflect Colors Like Blue or Hot Pink of a Sunrise

If you happen to have fairer or cool skin tones, then look for cooler shades from in a sunrise (hot pink or blue) to really compliment you.

Another Method is Checking the Color of the Veins on Your Wrist

Another way to tell what type of coloring you may be is by checking under your wrist.  Green veins classify you as sunset coloring while those with blue are sunrise.  However, you could always see both shades of veins so if that is the case go with muted selections of either sunrise or sunset.

    I have never heard these terms. Thank you! This is very helpful, and explains why I tend to look better in photos where I'm wearing pink…even though I kind of hate pink! :)
