I'd like to have my colors done some time, but at least I know what basically to look for.
Jan, what it basically boils down to is do you look better in warm or cool colors...I'd guess that for you it is cool colors because you said "pinky colors and blues." If I'm really, really lucky I can find a yellow that works for me but it can't be orangey at all. Lemon yellow, I think. Some greens have more yellow in them than blue. I find reds particularly tricky...not as bad as yellow which I've basically given up on...because they tend to be orangey reds. Once upon a time I had a book that told how to do it yourself at home. I found out what I already knew, blues, pinks, no earthy colors, no fall colors. Most people, I've read, are attracted more to the colors that they wear well. I can't tell for sure from the picture of MerigoldinWA's picture whether her green is warmer or cooler.
