Get to Know Your Skin Tone (Mocha Skin)


Now that you have a better understanding of your particular skin tone, we can focus on specifics like what colours work best for your mocha skin. The following will cover what works from head to toe, so take note on what appeals most to you or come back and re-read the article.

Mocha skinned individuals are a closer to the darker end of this skin tone spectrum, but when it comes to wearable garment colours and the like they are not much different from olive skinned individuals. Like your olive skinned counterparts, the world of colours and combinations "is your oyster". But of course, whether you're milky, fair, medium, olive, mocha, or chocolate skinned, colours that don't work well together will never work well together, it doesn't matter how flawless your skin is or how attractive you are; be sure to mix and match your colours well.

Mocha skinned individuals, like "olives", will have flexibility from browns, colours with red undertones, and darker blondes, when it comes to hair colour. When you reach for your make up choices, they can also be ranging. Pinks to lighter reds for blushes, bright reds to neutrals for lipstick, and of course a foundation that matches your skin.

Since you also do not burn easily and tan well, you can play with the seasons. For Winter, include shades of deep reds, darker greens and neutrals in your outfit choices. For Summer, you also have the range of the colour spectrum. Outfits can include oranges, reds, greens, yellows, even purple, but be sure to mix complementary colours.

Outside of the hair colour options and make-up, these pointers can and should be applied to males as well; the gentleman should always be as fashionable as his female counterpart. Remember, being fashionable is all inclusive, clothing should complement hair, make up and shoes should complement clothing, accessories should complement the entire outfit, but the complete ensemble should be flattering to the individual.

Be sure to enjoy the journey while creating your own unique style!
