Lighter Skin: Go for saturated hues in brown or tortoise shell, even bold colours like red, pink and purple and avoid light colours like blue. Even a cool beige would work best.

Medium Skin: Go for green undertones, like jewel tones, rich green, gold or even a dark black or grey and avoid darker hues or matte hues.

Dark Skin: Go for purple, blue, black, grey and gold toned greens, even clear or beige would work well but avoid bright colors instead go for warmer ones.
