Bridal Lehenga for Your Skin Type!

Colour Palettes for Skin Types

Why is it that everyone cannot wear all colors? Some colors make you look the best version of yourself yet some just dial down your whole personality in just one stroke! We have an easy explanation for you to understand why this happens to everyone in this world.

The classification is simply done according to the 4 seasons we have. Autumn, Spring, Summer and Winter.

The seasons represent different variations to the skin tone and hair color contrast that gives you your unique look
If your skin tone and hair have a warm undertone, or you are a natural brunette, you would be classed as either a spring or an autumn; if your skin is fairer and has a blue-ish or pinkish, cool undertone and your hair is more black or ashy, you are either a Summer or a Winter.

With the help of this analysis it is easy to select which colors will suit you the best.


From our Indian heritage, most of the population has a dusky skin tone with black or dark brown hair color. The colors which lean towards deeper or jewel tones are the best for this skin type. So, here are the color palettes that would reflect beautifully with your skin and make you look radiant.

These are the people who have a fairer skin & yellow undertone, hair color varying from light to dark brown. Brighter shades of the color wheel makes their eyes pop and adds to the luminescence of the skin.
