Pale Skin

Color To Wear

If you’ve got pale skin and light features, you need to bring some color to your complexion.

Dark colors are recommend like grey, brown, royal blue, dark green, navy and bolder shades of blue will all work well as these shades contrast with your skin tone.

Colors To Avoid

You’ll want to avoid soft, pastel shades or bright colors as these will only wash you out further. The same goes for neutrals too; so rather than white, light beige or stone, choose richer shades such as sand, camel, khaki and slate grey.
