Color blocking takes using colors for fashion to another level. You want to use colors to bring out the most fabulous you? Grab your color wheel! The following are six (6) very simple tips to help you get started!
#1: Pick two (2) colors.
Choose at most three colors and stick to that. A simple two-color look is more effective and sassier than combining multitudes of colors which can possibly result to a colorful, messy chaos. For a harmonious get-up, group colors of the same shade together. Separate the bright from the dulls. Use neutral shades for everything else, like your jewelry, shoes, bag and other accessories.
A wider contrast between the two colors brings about a more playful, refreshing get-up. A lesser contrast renders a more sophisticated aura.
#2: Use one that complement your skin tone, eyes and hair.
Pick shades that are opposite to the color of your skin, hair and eyes. Do not use hues that match your body tones because that would result to a dull, boring look. Colors that are complementary to your skin and hair make your clothes stand out and give you a brighter shine.
#3: It should highlight a body part.
Color blocking can be used to highlight your figure. Wear a brighter or lighter shade on the body part you want to bring out–your upper torso, for example. Wear a dull or darker shade on the part that you do not want to highlight.
#4: A vertical setting give you a slender look.
It is not only for those with tall height. For those with a petite stature, color blocking vertically works like a charm. This alternative to the more common horizontal blocking works like an optical illusion and effectively gives you a taller, slimmer look.
Wear two combination vertically. For example, black under a vividly colored overtop creates a lean line, making you look taller and more slender.
#5: Black and white is a classic.
Blocking still works for those who are scared of colors! If you think your choice does not bring the needed fashion desire, it is always safe to go with black and white. This classic combination never fails.
#6: Always be confident.
The best makeup anyone can wear is their confidence. Hear this out: if you do not think this suits your style and personality, it is more fashion-sensible to pass and look for an alternative. A classy, color blocked get-up has no use when you are shy, right? If you think otherwise, go out there and flaunt your looks. Be proud!
