Last Updated:  | By: Fashion

Half of the time spent on shopping goes in deciding which color suits you the most? So follow our guide for the best suitable color for your skin tone and you will never go wrong again.

1. Dusky Complexion.

70% of Indians have dusky complexion and most of them get their dress colors wrong,so here we have quite a few range of colours that are suitable for dusky skin tone that compliments your beautiful facial features.


This is one of the colours that does fire up fair complexion but looks striking on dusky women. Cream is a light colour and looks great on the background of dark skin

Teal green

Teal green is a very rare low-intensity shade of green. This colour looks much better on dark skinned women as compared to other shades of green.

Sea Green

Dark green shades are not really the best shades for dusky women. They should try more vibrant shades like sea green. It also depends on the dress to a certain extent.


Beige is again a very light English colour. While it looks all right on fair people, it looks significantly better on dusky women. Always wear Western outfits in beige colour. Reserve the bright colours for your Indian outfits.

2. Wheatish Skin tone.

Try muted bright colours. Pastel hues like white, sky blue and soft pink bring out the best of your yellow undertones.

Stark colours like fuchsia, tangerine and cobalt highlight facial features better.Since most Indians have a medium brown to wheatish skin; it is the primary colours that work for them

3. Fair Complexion

Fair women generally have peachy-pink undertones, which at times make their complexion look pale. Keep your look radiant and fresh with bright colours like pink, green and peach.
If you’re fair skinned with cooler undertones, you look great in the berry family. Think strawberry or deep red, raspberry pink, boysenberry and deep purple. It creates a nice contrast with your skin and can bring out a hint of color in your cheeks.
Jewel tones can also really flatter your skin. Think emerald, turquoise and amethyst.
As for metallics, stay away from silver and stick with gold.
