Much like the rich-colored individuals, the fair skinned has colors to avoid in order to look their best. But for one to know which shades of colors would look best on a fair skin, identifying the undertone is necessary. There are two types of undertones for the subtle skin colors, the warm freckled and the cool clear. You are warm if you have golden or red undertones in the hair, but cool if blonde and brown.
Warm Fair. The rosy color that comes along with freckles makes the warm undertone of fair skin and enticing. But you can still work it out to look more amazing with earth colors. Wear lots of brown and green nursing scrubs for your skin to look aglow. On the other hand, universal colors like black and white would require you to work a little more to avoid looking washed out. Better substitutes will be dark grey for black and ivory for white.
To complement your warm undertone, pick yellow based colors. But this doesn't mean that you cannot wear anything with blue undertones, or that every yellow based color is right for you. In fact, navy blue nursing scrub will make you look radiant, while purple unflattering.
Cool Fair. This skin color undertone is naturally stunning and makes a perfect canvass for experimentations. Begin with the blue-based colors as they are a standard for the type of skin color like yours. Pick nursing scrub in berry, wine, emerald, turquoise, icy green, and aqua marine, which all belong to the blue based group. There are actually a lot of options for you. To easily know if a color is right for your cool undertone, check if you picked a clear and rich color. Neutrals like cream will also be perfect.
Just as people with warm undertone can still find nursing scrub items in excellent blue based shades, there are also yellow based hues that will look astonishing with cool undertones. Deep reds, soft pastels and golden tints will be excellent, while pale blue and lilac just won't bring out the radiance of your clear fair skin.
For a quick guide to identifying blue and yellow undertones, look at a color wheel. Steering to blues from red gives you the blue undertones, while going to yellow from the red are the yellow undertones.
