Medium Skin Tone


Colors to go with


Medium skin tones share characteristics much closer to warm skin tone.Look for colors that are rich, warm and spicy.


Colors like Orange, Mustard, Pink, Red and Blue tones work best for you.




Colors to avoid


Medium skin tone should avoid icy silver, bright blue and shocking pink. Stay away from sharp icy colors because they make medium brown complexion appear harsh and masculine.

Also avoid colors which match your skin tone like Caramel and brown.



Colors to go with


Foundation: Since foundation is the base on which you will build your entire look, it is important that it should perfectly match to your skin tone. Foundations generally have either a  blue-toned or a golden base, with variations that flatter a wide group of faces falling in the warm and cool ranges.


For a medium skin tone ranging from olive to tanned skin ,choose foundation with a yellow-base that matches closest.


One should test the color on the face (not on the wrist or hand!) and have a look at in sunlight to make sure of having a good match.


Powder: Opt for loose powder that you can apply evenly on the face.Designed to set the make-up and control excess shine, powder will give your face a perfectly made-up look.


Choose powder that has yellow-base undertones.


Blush: For olive to yellow skin tones, choose blushes in copper, almond, and warm brown shades.Tanned skin often looks best on warm colors like peach, coral, apricot, and orange.


Lipstick: Choosing lipstick color is the most difficult. Before you choose any shade, it is important to first examine a tester version of the lipsticks on a sheet of white paper to discover their dominant color.


Brown, warm red, or very pale, looks excellent on yellow skin. While tanned skin looks gorgeous by a variety of true pinks.


Eye Shadow: Earthy hues add dimension to the eyes.Scarlet red, earthy brown and olive green are good choices for eye-shadow.
