Before heading to one of this city’s renowned bridal salons in search of your dress, we’ve put together a guide to help you decide which shade of white will best complement your coloring.
“To determine your skin tone, all you need to do is determine the color of your veins,” makeup maven Kaleigh Caver of the Styling Stewardess says. “Doing this in natural light is best. If your veins appear blue or purple, you have a cool skin tone (more of a pink undertone). If your veins look green or a greenish blue, you have a warm skin tone (more yellow or peach undertone).”
Below, Christina Plumlee of Stanley Korshak Bridal has helped us to pair skin tones and dress shades.
Fair: silk white, blush
Red undertones: silk white, light ivory, ivory, blush
Yellow undertones: light ivory, gold, or nude tones
Neutral but tan: silk white, light ivory, rich undertones
Dark: ivory, light ivory, and silk white
