It's Mother's Day this Sunday (in the UK) so there's going to be a lot of PINK around this weekend.
Whether it's baby sweet or hot and shocking we all assume the 'girly' connotation and yet every woman certainly doesn't favor the color PINK.
In my own case, after being dressed in pastel pink continually as a child I ran a mile from it as I got older. And yet, eventually I realized that a good strong Cool pink is one of my best colors and I love it!
SO whether you're a girly girl or not, take note, because every woman needs to know the best shades of pink to suit her natural coloring - even if it's just for Makeup and the inevitable flowers that your kids love to buy you!
Wearing the best makeup colors that flatter your complexion makes your face come ALIVE!
But not Simply Pink! Think WARM or COOL
white is added to red it produces Pink. But Red can be orange toned or blue toned and, consequently, PINK varies as well.
Not only does this dilute
the intensity of the color but it also softens the meaning. Red is hot and passionate whereas Pink is romantic and tender!
