This book has four main Colortypes to choose from.
SUN: “Your skin is warm with tawny, peachy, or golden undertones. In the sun, you tan and freckle. You blush peach. Your skin color ranges from creamy to freckly; tawny to caramel.”
“From peach to lemon, strawberry to mango, and lime to blueberry, shades on the sun palette are as refreshing as summer sorbet. Suns are golden girls–so they can wear tropical colors all year-round.”
MOON: “Your skin is cool with blue or pink undertones. Moon can be ultra-pale or dusky dark. If you’er ultra-pale you probably don’t tan, but if you do, you burn first. Your skin may have a translucent quality. Your skin color ranges from ivory to rose; beige to light mocha.”
“Moon women can’t go wrong playing it cool–they’re most gorgeous when they have blues, from turquoise to slate, sky to Tiffany. Their cool skin tones will glow in contrast to blue-reds and pinks, from fuchsia to magenta, rose to petal.”
EARTH: Your skin is warm with golden or terra-cotta under-tones. You can develop a deep tan in the sun, but without sun exposure, you may be pale with little or no cheek color. Your skin color ranges from fair to bronze to brown.”
“All the sumptuous colors on the earth palette can be found in the fairy tale forest, from ripe shades of berry and plum, to rich moss greens and browns, to bright and cheery marigold, peony, and lilac.”
STAR: Your skin is cool, or olive, with blue undertones. Star run the spectrum from palest pale to deepest brown-black. If you are an alabaster Star you rarely tan and tend to burn, but if you are a deeper toned Star you tan and rarely burn. Regardless, you tend not to freckle. Your skin color ranges from alabaster to pearl, deep olive to espresso.”
“The Star comes out at night–and so do her best colors. Her palette is a wealth of modern jewel tones, from luminescent pearl to rarest emerald, ruby red to deep lapis blue.”
