Picking out colors to flatter your skin is like playing a game of opposites. You never want to wear a color that’s the exact shade of your skin, because it just won’t be as flattering.

Girls with medium skin should stay away from browns, beiges, caramel, oranges and very pale pastels in any hue. Pastels and other light hues will be too cool against your skin and can bring out gray undertones. Gray is just not something you want in your complexion. Instead, you want colors that will bring out the warmth in your complexion.

Stick with brighter, deeper hues and jewel tones
 that will really pop against your skin. Jewel tones are deep, rich colors that resemble precious gems like emeralds, rubies, sapphires and amethysts.

The blue family, from deep navy to royal blue, is really flattering for medium skin. Deep pink, bright pink and raspberry pink are also good choices. The red and green families, plus deep purples will also be flattering for you as well.
