Can everyone wear blue?

Yes, they can. It’s the undertone of the colour that counts. If you have a warm skin tone you should look for a yellow undertone.

Is Blue a warm or cool colour?

Some blues are a combination of both warm and cool and some are one or the other. The key is to find the right shade of blue for you with the correct undertone. If you are a rule breaker and think to yourself, I am going to wear it anyway and you know that it is the wrong shade for you make sure you wear it away from you face. For arguments sake so many ladies know that black is not a colour which will bring out the best in them.  They still choose to wear it anyway, on the bottom half in trouser or a skirt, or in a pair of shoes or handbag. You can then wear one of your best colours close to your skin.

I might feel very feminine and want to wear a warm pink to bring out some empathy. Or I might need to wear my favourite shade of green from the Heart Chakra as I want to be kind to myself.
