The color pigments of our skin define what kind of skin tone we have. If you have pale but gold reflexive skin tone, that means you have a warm skin color. But the main false fact about skin tones is the brunette skin is perceived warm when white skin is cold sub-tone. But the opposite rules work here, your skin color might be contrary with your sub-skin’s. Unquestioningly the colors to go with your skin are warm caramel, cream, red brown, sun yellow and corals. Try bronze and honey foundations but also almond, orange and peach blushers will enlighten your skin. Try to avoid pink tones as they will suffocate your natural energy.
