I refuse to wear that color!

Posted by   + Show Post

RED!

It looks awful on me!  I have yet to find something in red that I can wear.  I've bought shirts over the last few years and they just don't lay well on me.  I could even buy the same shirt in another color and it looks fine.  Weird? 

Do you have a color you just can't wear?

Any yellows or oranges look terrible on my skin..I am white with a pinkish undertone to my skin and it washes me out terribly!

 I should have made a poll!  Red, yellow and orange would have definately lost!

I can pull off just about any color in clothes, but I cannot pull of a red or Barbie pink lip color. I also can't pull off a deep smoky eye.

Red is my favorite color! I have a couple of blazers, shoes, dresses... I also wear a ton of black.
I don't jive well with white. I'm super-pale and kinda messy...

 I also can't go too pale or too dark with my lipstick.  The reds make me look washed out and the pale just makes my lip disappear all together.

 White is tough, more so when you have kids!

Yep, no doubt. I have a 21month old little girl and she can't do white either!
Aside from that I work at a makeup counter at a department store and we have the choice of all black or black and white...all the white is good for us the first hour I'm there...then its off to my locker for one of my BLACK emergency shirts :P
